This question is regarding using STSADM command to create new site collection in Active Directory Account creation mode.
My setup is like this-
I have 2 virtual PCs in a Windows XP Pro SP3 host. Both VPCs are Windows Server 2003 R2. One VPC acts as the DC, DNS Server, DHCP server, has Active Directory installed and is also the Database Server.
The other VPC is the domain member and it is the IIS web server, POP/SMTP server and it has WSS 3.0 installed.
I created a new site using the GUI in Central Admin page. For creating a site collection under the newly created site, I needed to use the STSADM command line tool since it cannot be done from Central Admin page in Active Directory Account creation mode.
Thats where i got into a problem-
stsadm.exe -o createsite -url http://vivek-c5ba48dca:1111/sites/Sales -owneremail [email protected]
The format of the specified domain name is invalid. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800704BC)
The following is the output from the SHarepoint LOG-

Seems to me that the trouble started with this -
Unable to get domain DNS or forest DNS for domain sharepointsvc.com. ErrorCode=1212
Network connection to the sharepointsvc.com domain seems to be fine.
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN>stsadm -o getproperty -pn ADAccountDomain
<Property Exist="Yes" Value="sharepointsvc.com" />
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN>stsadm -o getproperty -pn ADAccountOU
<Property Exist="Yes" Value="sharepoint_ou" />
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN>nslookup sharepointsvc.com
Addresses: 192.168.0.21, 192.168.0.5
Is there any way of checking the domain connection from within Sharepoint (like using some getproperty of the STSADM tool)
Does anyone have any clue about this ? (any pointers would be very helpful)
