Hi Prior to installing AD - need to run some perquisites checks: I am referring to: http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver/en/library/b96e3f0a-bf98-4a80-8718-dd80dc1071fd1033.mspx?mfr=true in point 8) Verify the availability of the operations masters In it, Microsoft recommend running: dcdiag /s: pkcore /test:knowsofroleholders /v dcdiag /s: pkcore /test:fsmocheck /v where pkcore is my main domain controller. Also, in kb 265706, they recommend running: dcdiag /test:dcpromo /dnsdomain:mydomain.com /replicadc this basically is to test so that the DNS configuration is sufficient to allow this computer to be promoted as a replica domain controller in the mydomain.com domain. So my question are this tests the right ones? Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You need DNS and a domain controller for the existing domain that you wish to add a domain controller for to be online. Make sure the computer being promoted can PING both by computer name and IP address before running dcpromo.
