Windows 2012 Server Essentials and Automatic Setup of Domain called "DOMAIN"


I have just at a customers site Windows 2012 server essentials R2 and all has gone through ok it seems only problem i can see is that it has setup AD and a Domain but didn't give me a chance to name the Domain it has just put domain.local

I am doing a few of these installs and would like the opportunity to put my own name in the server for the domain, i presume you can do it

Can someone please point me in the right direction

Thanks Adam

seems that there is already a domain called domain.local.
please share that page which appears when promoting the server to domain controller.
did you have this ?
