To promote a role server into a domain controller, you need to add the following items to your checklist:
♦ An administrator's password
♦ Network protocols
♦ DNS IP addresses and host names
♦ NetBIOS name of host
♦ Role service information
Note According to our definition, a member server can be a role server only if you install specific role services onto the server during installation, such as WINS, DNS, DHCP, and so on.
