  • Ntdsutil : IFM

    I am seeking for to create a RODC by using installation media method. I have a 2008 r2 DC. When I run the command IFM RODC I am getting the below error.

    ifm: create rodc c:\rodc
    RODC IFM media may not be produced for AD/LDS instances


    no out put I can see in c:\rodc folder after this. My adlds instance is already activated and that is running.

    Any guess what may be the problem ?

    Thanks for your help in advance !!!!

    seems like you may not have a full AD installation..
    have you selected the correct AD installation to use ?

        If you go into Server Manager and view the installed roles on your source server, does it list Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services or Active Directory Domain Services?

        If it's Lightweight Directory Services, then it is not a full AD installation and cannot be used to create RODC install media. For RODC media, you should be activating NTDS not an AD LDS instance.
