Event ID: 1578 Source: ActiveDirectory

Level
Description
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 \ Current Control Set \ Services \ NTDS \ Parameters \ Global Catalog Partition Occupancy

The levels are as follows: (0) No occupancy requirement; (1) At least one readonly partition in site added by the KCC; (2) At least one partition in site synchronized fully; (3) All readonly partitions in site added by the KCC (at least one synchronized); (4) All partitions in site synchronized fully.

Greater levels include the requirements of lesser levels. The current occupancy requirement is <value>. This server is currently at level <value>.
Comments
 
As per Microsoft: "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". See MSW2KDB for more information on this issue.
