Join Timothy Pintello for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding domain controllers to a domain, part of Windows Server 2012: Install, Configure, and Administer Active Directory.
- Now we've talked about domain controllers,…let's talk about adding domain controllers to a domain.…The first thing you need to do…is run the Active Directory Domain Services role.…Once the Active Directory Domain Services role has been run,…it will automatically bring up the Active Directory…Domain Services Configuration Wizard.…A couple of things to consider…when installing Active Directory onto a domain controller…is that first you need to use a static IP address…for all servers that operate as domain controllers.…
Second, if you're adding the domain controller…to an existing domain,…you need to make sure that you use…the domain's DNS server…and not allow the Wizard to create a new one.…Adding the Active Directory Domain Services role…does not automatically make the server a domain controller.…Adding the Active Directory Domain Services role…merely prepares the server for becoming a domain controller.…Once the Active Directory Domain Services role is installed,…the server then needs to be promoted…in order to become a domain controller.…
