AD DS Role fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I attempt to add the AD DS role, I get "installation failed". No details as to why.

    I looked in the horribly placed Tasks in the Server Manager and it too has no details. However, I still try to do a promotion and I select 'new forest'. i then get this error: Could not validate the domain name(s).  The 'Test-VerifyForestName' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file or operable program."

    I've tried w8.tst and gdsw8.tst. DNS is the WS08R2 DDNS server with those zones working and the server's DNS records present.
