Halp! Trying to DCPromo a 2008 core server using command line but it won't take. What am i doing wrong?
Posted on 2009-04-08
I'm studying for my 2008 certs, specifically 70-640, using the Microsoft Self-Paced Training Kit book. I'm still towards the beninning and already I'm having problems.
I'm at the part about creating Server Cores (2008 servers with nearly no GUI at all) and it's telling me to enter the following:
dcpromo /unattend /replicaOrNewDomain:repica /replicaDomainDNSName:contoso.com /ConfirmGC:Yes /UserName:CONTOSO\Adminsitrator/Password:* /safeModeAdminPassword:P@ssword
I've tried this with /Password:*, and with the actual password typed out instead of *, replacing contoso with contoso.com and vice versa, both with .com, neither, still all I get back is:
"You must supply the name of the domain to which this user account belongs."
What am I doing wrong. Thanks all.
