I am new to virtual machines. Just installed Oracle virtualbox and trying to run the virtual machine from .vhd file. VM is running fine but my Active Directory is not Operational. Some times it gives me the error saying Server is not operational.

!For details please see the screenshot.1

Thanks in advance

What does it say in your logs? Are you bridging the VM? ...why are you running an AD server in VirtualBox and not in a dedicated VM host, like VMWare ESXi or Hyper-V? –  Bart Silverstrim Feb 16 '12 at 14:48
    
hi @BartSilverstrim in Log it says Server is not operational. Its my company's recommendation to use VirtualBox to run VM, I am quite new to in so I don't even know much about VMWare ESXi and Hyper-V. AD is not allowing me to run CRM on VM. Thanks –  Scorpion Feb 16 '12 at 14:54
    
Are all needed services running? Is this the only domain controller? Is this a newly created VM? –  Dave M Feb 16 '12 at 15:00

Hi @DaveM, yes all services are running. Actually my Machine is not but I have copied .vhd from someone else's machine. which is working fine for him. –  Scorpion Feb 16 '12 at 15:04

You will need to create a new VM instead of copying one from someone else. Copying a VM and putting it on the same network, especially if it is a domain controller, will cause issues.

Start from scratch with this one, and be sure that you understand how the VirtualBox VM is working. Once you have that in place, you can then begin learning how to build a member server and promote it to a domain controller for Active Directory. As stated above, I would recommend that you first do this in a test environment before attempting this in a live production environment.

Thanks @Sam Erde, I am trying it in Test environment. –  Scorpion Feb 16 '12 at 16:40
    
Do you already have an Active Directory domain set up in the test environment, or would this be your first domain controller? –  SturdyErde Feb 16 '12 at 18:34
