Whitepaper: Installing a Windows Server 2008 Active Directory

June 3, 2008

Aidan Finn has written a guide on how to install a single-domain forest with 2 domain controllers using Windows Server 2008:

This document is going to focus on how to build a new Windows Server 2008 Active Directory domain.  There are two goals for this paper:

  • You will be able to build a domain which you can use for lab work that is presented in the rest of this book.
  • You will be able to build a domain that will suit 80% of organizations.

Most people who read something like this document will never need a domain that needs more than two domain controllers.  It’s likely the domain won’t need to span multiple sites.  The network probably has less than 500 users and no more than a handful of member servers.  What we’re going to do is build a Windows Server 2008 domain that will serve those needs.  Hopefully the 80% who recognize their network in that description will be able to use this section as a starting point.  Anyone who does not fall into this category will have a good jump off point from which to span their Active Directory across more sites.
