windows 2008 on hpvm 4.1 rx8620

As testing we tried to install windows 2008 on rx8620 with hpvm 4.1. Installation is succesful. But we are unable to setup active directory ( DCpromo is not running )

----
C:\Windows\adprep>adprep.exe /forestprep
Adprep cannot run on this platform because it is not an Active Directory Domain
Controller.
[Status/Consequence]
Adprep stopped without making any changes.
[User Action]
Run Adprep on a Active Directory Domain Controller.



C:\Windows\adprep>dcpromo
'dcpromo' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Please suggest...

Have you tried to do setup AD via "Add\Remove Server Roles"?

Whops... Active Directory role is not supported on Itanium architecture. See this url for more info: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc772344%28WS.10%29.aspx
