Hi,

I´ve got a ibm systemx 3100 m4 server where is installed a windows 2008r2. when i try to promote it as a domain controller in a new domain it does all the process of creating the new domain but when it restarts, the operating system doesn´t initialize. I have try this several times but i allways hace the same result. does anyone know what can be happening?.

Thanks.

It begin to start, but it doesn´t pass from the screen of the "green bar". I have been waiting for 20 minutes but the operating system it doesn´t finish to start. When, i only can shut down the system by pushing the power botton. I have done the promotion several times but i allways have the same result.

I can create a virtual machine with a windows 2008r2 and promoting it to domain controller, its only a temporaly solution, but its working.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

How long do you wait before giving up - 30 minutes? Hours? Overnight? Does the green bar continue to move the whole time, or does it freeze?

It may be finishing up some promotion-related configuration - I've never seen that take longer than a few minutes, but every server and configuration is different. I'll occasionally catch Windows taking a really, really long time to boot after a configuration change that seems minor.

i have let it booting about 20 minutes, the bar is moving but  it doesn`t finish. the virtual machine has done the promotion and boot in less than 10 minutes in the whole process.

I let my server working much longer and finally create the domain with no error.

Thanks.
