We will ensure that connectivity to other domain controllers in the network is satisfactory. As in this case the domain controller will belong to an existing domain we will introduce what he previously making the connection test and we have done.

To promote a domain controller with Windows Server 2008 we must first prepare the forest and domain as long as the domain functional level is not Windows mixed 2000 (Remember that this functional level is only valid in the case that still dispongáis driver NT Server domain).

required disk space with clean + patches by day 21 / 11 / 2009 installation.
