    No, you will need to RTFM.

    Sorry.

    The process is pretty straightforward, and since you claim you're "stuck" I can only assume you didn't read the manual. Please do so, and if you still have issues, come back and tell us what you did and where you had problems.
    Cheers,

        Sounds like the classic reason to have a proof of concept lab then.

                  You only have to add it if you want it to be installed separately. The moment the server is promoted to a DC, GPMC is automatically installed. Try it.
