Procedure for creating a 2nd domain controller for SBS 2008.
Question: Hello, my main server is a SBS2008, 64 bit box, which is used for login, file server, exchange etc.
I want to set up a secondary "read only" DC on a server running Windows server 2008 standard, 32 bit which is a member of the same domain as the main server.

Here's a set of instructions I found, but I don't hink it's copmplete:
as when I try it, I have authority problems with the commands when I run it on the target 2nd DC.
Does anyone know of a complete set of instructions to do this safely?
As I don't want to frag my main DC.
I take a nightly full backup of both servers anyway, but I'd rather not have to go down the road of restoring servers if I can avoid it
