3. If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Continue.

4. At the elevated command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
ntdsutil

5. At the ntdsutil prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
snapshot

6. At the snapshot prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
activate instance ntds

7. At the snapshot prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
create
The command returns the following output:
Snapshot set {GUID} generated successfully.
Where GUID is the globally unique identifier (GUID) for the snapshot.
