Lab 2

Create a new VM:

  1. Add a new Windows 10 virtual machine
    1. Change its network address to be IP=192.168.1.10, subnet=255.255.255.0, DNS=192.168.1.2 and verify that you can access the internet.
    2. Change its name to be cpte230w
  2. Find and install the remote administration tools. (Hint: you can do this through powershell easier than through the GUI)
  3. Instal Windows Admin Center
  4. Enable remote desktop connections

We are going to install AD in a single Domain for right now. For this lab we will perform the following:

  1. Change the hostname of your server to match the naming convention. Namely: "cpte230a" (if you haven't done this, do this first!!!)
  2. Install a new Forest with a single domain cpte230.internal

    1. > Install-WindowsFeature -name AD-Domain-Services -IncludeManagementTools

    2. > Install-ADDSForest -DomainName "scot.local" -CreateDnsDelegation:$false -DomainMode WinThreshold -DomainNetbiosName "scot" -ForestMode WinThreshold -InstallDns:$true

  3. Some Clean up...
    1. Make sure you are in the Eastern Time Zone
    2. Change your DNS from 10.10.129.2|3 to your IP address (192.168.1.2).
    3. Check to make sure your installation went as expected. Use some of the tools I've shown you in class (AD Users and Comps., ADSIEdit ...)

Back on the Windows 10 machine:

  1. Add the Windows 10 computer to the top Active directory domain.
    1. Right click start, system, advanced settings
    2. Under Computer Name, click "Change..." and add it to your active directory.
    3. In the Windows 10 computer as administrator add the "Domain Users" to the list of users allowed to use remote desktop
      1. Right click start
      2. Select System, Advanced System Settings
      3. Select Remote, Select Users and Add "Domain Users" to the list.

Documentation

Document the process that you used in installing your active directory in a new page "Domain". Make sure to include the commands you entered in PowerShell!

  1. Computer Name: [...]
  2. Domain Name: [...]
  3. Commands used in order from the Power Shell prompt.
  4. Any other changes you made at this point.

Create a video that talks through the documentation you created and shows the server has active directory installed and operational. The easiest way to do this is pull up the Active Directory Users and Computers tool and show the domain.
