Prior to installing AD - need to run some perquisites checks:
I am referring to:
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?
