We are planning to upgrade our Domain Controllers from Win2k8R2 to WIN2K16.
I've the lab setup ready with WIN2K8 R2 DC's and Im not planning to do a in place upgrade. I've this question regarding adprep /forestprep /domainprep /gpprep.
Do i need to execute these commands manually if i install a fresh windows server 2016 & promoted as a DC ?
if No, how do i verify whether the Domainprep & Forestprep is completed successfully after introducing the first WIN2K16 DC
