I want to join virtual domain controller to a real domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • My company have server 2003 named (for example) contoso.com. I have installed Microsoft Windows Server 2008 in Microsoft Virtual PC. Now I want to create an existing domain controller and join it to my company's server 'contoso.com'. So I ran dcpromo.exe in my VM, after entering name of my company's domain and domain admin credentials it goes to the next step where it shows company's domain name, but when I hit next it gave me error that run adprep /forest and something something. Can anyone tell me whats the problem?

  • You need to provide the actual message details. 

    There is no difference in adding a VM or physical machine to a domain.
