Creating an answer file with dcpromo lab problems

I am currently doing the labs in Chapter 10 of the Self-Paced Training Kit, version R2. In exercise 1, I am supposed to use dcpromo on a DC to create an answer file. However, when I run dcpromo.exe on the DC, the only option I have is to uninstall the DC. It seemed odd to me that I would run dcpromo on a DC, but I tried anyway. Should this work on a DC, or do I have to perform this on a member server?

Thanks,

    Run dcpromo on a server that hasn't been promoted to domain controller yet. Then export at the end, and cancel out of the wizard before clicking finish. I did the same thing you're talking about when I first got started on these.

    Thanks for the reply. I thought that was wrong because I know you use dcpromo to also remove a dc from the domain. I looked in the errata for the book, but that exercise error wasn't in there. I think I will submit it.
