I wonder if anybody can shed any light on my issue, I have added a new 2016 server as a DC to our existing domain, I have set it up with DNS, GC accordingly.

 

I have added DHCP and set it to Load Balance with the existing 2012 R2 DC which went fine, however I am unable to set the DNS Dynamic update credentials on the new 2016 server, if I enter the same details that the 2012 R2 server has it says user name or password is incorrect.

 

I have also tried the command line method which also doesn't work.

 

DCDiag is all fine so I am at a total loss currently.

Attached is the odd response I get when I run the cmd version of adding these credentials.  Password is blanked out at the end.

 

What does List of WWW servers available to the client mean?!

In case anyone encounters this the issue was that the service account was only allowed to logon to certain servers (I missed that!)

 

Not very helpful error messages though
