Message: : Promotion of this server to a Global Catalog has been delayed because partition
occupancy requirements have not been met.

A parameter is used to control the strictness that the Directory enforces the partition
occupancy requirement. The parameter is

Local Machine \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ NTDS \ Parameters \ Global Catalog
Partition Occupancy

The levels are as follows:
(0) No occupancy requirement;
(1) At least one read-only partition in site added by Knowledge Consistency Checker (KCC);
(2) At least one partition in site synchronized fully;
(3) All read-only partitions in site added by the KCC (at least one synchronized);
(4) All partitions in site synchronized fully;
(5) All read-only partitions in forest added by the KCC (at least one synchronized);
(6) All partitions in forest synchronized fully.

Greater levels include the requirements of lesser levels. The current occupancy
requirement is %1. This server is currently at level %2.

   
Explanation

Promotion of the local domain controller to a global catalog has been delayed because the directory partition occupancy requirements have not been met. The occupancy requirement level and current domain controller level are indicated in the message.

The following registry key value defines the directory partition occupancy requirement level:HKeyLocalMachine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\Parameters\GlobalCatalog PartitionOccupancy

Higher occupancy requirement levels include the lower levels. The levels are defined as follows:

(0) Indicates that there is no occupancy requirement.(1) Indicates that at least one read-only directory partition in the site has been added by Knowledge Consistency Checker (KCC).(2) Indicates that at least one directory partition in the site has been fully synchronized.(3) Indicates that all read-only directory partitions in the site have been added by KCC (at least one has been synchronized).(4) Indicates that all directory partitions in the site have been fully synchronized.(5) Indicates that all read-only directory partitions in the forest have been added by KCC (at least one has been synchronized).(6) Indicates that all directory partitions in the forest have been fully synchronized.

   
User Action

No user action is required. However, if you want to begin using this local domain controller as a global catalog immediately, you can change the occupancy requirement level.
