Active Directory “internal error occurred” when created a new user

Problem:  When creating a new user within Active Directory Users and Computers I would get the following error when trying to finish the user creation.  Logged on to my primary domain controller and was able to create.  But wasn’t able to from my exchange server…

Windows cannot create the object because and internal error occurred.

Solution: Turns out the Exchange Server that I was trying to create the user on was authenticated to a domain controller that had limited connectivity because of a poorly seeded patch cable on my Windows Virtual Server machine. (my domain controller is in a hyper v setting).   Reseeded the patch cable and restarted my virtual machine and then user creation was once again successful.
