DCPROMO Debug update


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.

There is one additional important file that you should also use which is:

  • Netsetup.log – Provides information about the attempts to join domains

Happy logging!
