I know this is your test  environment and even though you may not be using SSL, I am telling you that the most likely cause of your error  and inability to create  an adam  instance using the script  is due to the port numbers you have chosen.

Instead of 80 and 80, try the defaults: 389 for normal, non encrypted LDAP access and 636 for SSL LDAP connections.

As I said, port 80 is what IIS is most likely running on, hence why you experience difficulty that is most likely caused by a conflict.

Try it, let me know how you get on.
