I inherited and account that has an existing Windows 2003 R2 Server, We are upgrading to a Windows 2008 R2 Server.  I am in the process of DCPROMO.EXE wizard and it's asking what the FQDN is. Where do I find in Windows 2003 R2 Server where the existing FQDN info is?

It's common for servers that didn't pay for a real FQDN to be something like servername.domainname.local correct?

go to system properties (click start -> right click Computer -> click properties. and go to where you change computer names) and your full computer name is your FQDN
