Below is an explanation of the DC* log files:

  1. DCPromoUI.log – Records detailed progress report of user selections and operations.
  2. DCPromo.log – Records summary of critical operations.
  3. DCPromos.log – Records graphical user interface mode setup, this is for upgrades from Windows NT 3.x or Windows NT 4.0 domain controllers to Active Directory Domain controllers.
