ADDS role configuration with DCPromo failed , rc = 42

    Frage

  • Hi,

    i'm trying to build a Domain Controller (Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1) using MDT 2012.

    I created a Standard Task Sequence and append the following:

    1. "Apply Network Settings" Task to apply a fixed ip configuration to the machine.
    2. "Install Roles and Features" Task to install ADDS
    3. "Configure ADDS" Task to configure ADDS

    The task sequence itself is working fine till it comes to the "Configure ADDS" Step. Here it fails showing me the following error code:

    ERROR - ADDS role configuration with DCPromo failed , rc = 42
    ZTI ERROR - Non-zero return code by ZTIConfigureADDS, rc = 42

    Here is my ZTIConfigureADDS.log , any ideas what went wrong?

    Thanks a lot !

    Regards, Stefan
