JSI Tip 2510. Invalid LMHOSTS entry can cause upgrade to fail during Dcpromo.

When you attempt to upgrade a Winodws NT 4.0 BDC, the upgrade may fail during the Dcpromo process.

Check the LMHOSTS file for invalid entries, specifically those that have both #PRE and #DOM references.

Remove any invalid entries.
