I was wondering if it was possible to run dcpromo on a windows 2008 storage server to make it also a domain controller or is the storage server version OS unable to be promoted?

Software/Hardware used:
dell nx3000 windows storage server 2008

According to <a href=”http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&ct=res&cd=1&ved=0CBIQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fdownload.microsoft.com%2Fdownload%2Fd%2F7%2F3%2Fd733574e-d82f-4015-bf44-b6735ecf4fb3%2FWSS2003R2_ITPro_WP.doc&ei=nnbzS4e_C4T4sgPKwpD4Cw&usg=AFQjCNE9mHqipKjZHVpvTND3EhExUGnDPw&sig2=kAhVpiMhQwIlOtldWx6YiA”>this</a> whitepaper you can’t use dcpromo on storage server. Granted this was for Windows 2003, but I would assume that the same is still true.
