Hi,  I apologize, as I am not clear in my question.  I recently deployed an AD in a test lab.  I have a primary AD and a secondary AD.  When I look at the roles, role services, and features, they ar very different.  I belive that I made serious errors in selecting the roles, roles services, and features during the build process.  What I am looking for is a list of the roles, roles services, and features that are required by a primary and secondary AD server for Microsoft Server 2012 R2?
