In every domain that will host either an Exchange 2003 server or mail-enabled users, two security groups must be created. (l)

This is a replica domain controller in an existing forest.  There is a working Domain Controller as the forest root domain controller.  This is a server core that will be a replica DC.

The DCpromo syntax is as follows;

Dcpromo.exe /ReplicaOrNewDomain:Replica /ReplicaDomainDNSName:hq.local /RebootOnSuccess:Yes /SafeModeAdminPassword:TrustM3

dcpromo /Unattend /InstallDns:yes /ConfirmGC:yes /replicaOrNewDomain:Replica /ReplicaDomainDNSName:hq.local /DatabasePath:"C:\Windows\NTDS" /LogPath:"C:\Windows\NTDS" /SysvolPath:"C:\Windows\SYSVOL" /SafeModeAdminPassword:TrustM3 /RebootOnCompletion:yes

paste this syntax into elevated command-line
