Q. When I use Dcpromo to create a child domain, why do I receive an error saying that the domain name is already in use when in fact no domain with that name exists?

A. The error you're receiving occurs when the child domain name conflicts with the name of any object. If I try to add the child domain "test" to the domain savilltech.com, I'd receive the error that the figure at Figure shows if any other object (e.g., a user, a group, an organization unit--OU) in the savilltech.com domain has the name "test." If you want to use an existing name for a new domain, you must rename the existing object before you name the new domain.
