Should I join the domain with my new server 2008 R2 before I run dcpromo ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    Should I join the domain with my new server 2008 R2 before I run dcpromo ?

    Brand new server, 2008 r2. I want it to eventually be my forest root. Should I go ahead and join it to the domain as just a member server and then do all the ? Should I run adprep before I join the domain? I'm only asking about member server at this point...before dcpromo.

    Most of the posts I have seen relating to installing Additional Domain Controller (ADC) onto a domain, state that the machine they are starting with is NOT a member of the domain.  In my case, the machine I want to make an ADC is already a member of the domain.
