CMD execute dcpromo error: Active Directory Domain Services Setup Wizard is not supported on this SKU, Windows Server 2008 R2 enterprise configures ad (active directory) domain controller


Today, to install an ad domain controller, run dcpromo with the following results:The Active Directory Domain Services Setup Wizard is not supported on this SKU.

I passed it directly before. What’s the matter this time? It’s been done for most of the day.

    Main causeMy version of windows 2008 R2 is web. The ad role is not supported. Only DNS and IIS roles are supported. When installing, the instructions are: the web version also supports all roles.

Only one enterprise version can be reinstalled:

The main step is to select the version:

Enterprise = flagship, with full functions

Standard = standard

Datacenter = datacenter version

Web server = web server version

Full installation is the installation with UI, that is, there is a graphical interface operation after the installation

Core installation, i.e. command line operation mode without graphical interface after installation

Full installation of the ultimate is recommended


  Don’t look at the description. You will be prompted to support all server roles for which version of full installation you choose.
