  • Installing a New Child Domain          

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731873(v=ws.10).aspx

    Install from 2008 R2 Disk:

    D:\support\adprep\adprep /forestprep 


    Error Code:

    Forest-wide information has already been updated.
    


    Install Child Domain:

    dcpromo /unattend /InstallDns:yes /ParentDomainDNSName:mysite.com 
    
    /replicaOrNewDomain:domain /newDomain:child /newDomainDnsName:gridview.mysite.com 
    
    /childName:gridview /DomainNetbiosName:gridview /databasePath:"c:\Windows\ntds" 
    
    /logPath:"c:\Windows\ntds" /sysvolpath:"c:\Windows\SYSVOL" /safeModeAdminPassword:pass1 
    
    /forestLevel:4 /domainLevel:4 /rebootOnCompletion:yes
    

    Error Code:

    The specified argument 'childName' was not recognized.

    All I wanted was a new Child Domain called gridview.
