This is a bit fishy. if it is expected to run from the install dir,
then I guess it should run without a bin/ or sbin/. I think the bin/
was for running from the build dir.

I think so.

The missing password is a red herring, dcpromo removes it from the file
to avoid it being left on disk.

What exactly is the problem you face? What goes wrong with dcpromo?
It's really good to see someone having a go at wintest. It is a really
important testsuite, but sadly it hasn't had many users and is a little
fiddly to get going.
