I am running Windows Storage Server 2008 and was attempting to promote the machine to a DC on our network and came up with the following error at the command line:

"The Active Directory Services Installaion Wizard is not supported on this SKU"
I was able to get the wizard in Windowes to install AD DS but now i need to make the server a DC.

How does DNS fit into this? I have 2 DNS servers on the network, so I assume that I'm OK.

What am i missing?

Thanks,
JPertchik
