I accidentally ran provtest on AddServerClasses.xml before changing the preferred domain controller value. When I run provtest again, it fails saying the values already exist. Is there a way to change this after already running provtest?

I am not sure how it manages to run ok since the 1st thing the function does is test for domain admin using the preferreddomainController, so if this is wrong an error will be thrown.
Is the Web Host or Data Hosting Resource Manager namespace?
The values get entered into the DB, for which the preferredDomainController is not required.
So you shouldn't need to run this again, even if your preferredDomainController was incorrect, although I am still confused as to how it got passed the Domain Admin check.

It is the Web Hosting namespace.
I don't know how it worked either. It came back successful even though it used AD01-wh.fabrikam.com as the preferred DC. I corrected the .xml file and tried provtest again and it came back with this:
<errorContext description="The specified server class (IISWebServerPremium) already exists."
<errorSource namespace="Error Provider"
<errorSource namespace="Web Hosting Resource Manager"
Now when I run provtest QueryAllServers.xml, this is what comes back:
Notice the AD01-fabrikam.com preferred DC
If this is not going to be an issue, I wont worry about it. But I would like to know if it can be changed. Installing this environment takes so long, and the have the last step be off will drive me crazy! LOL

Have you changed the preferredDomainController in the QueryAllServers.xml before submitting it via provtest?

I dodn't, the instructions left that out. I made the change and it references my DC. So do I really need to worry about this then?

You must edit every last one of those xml files before you provtest them.
But, in this case, I don't think it will be an issue.
So, no, don't worry about it.

Ok thanks Steve.
