Active Directory Sites And Services

    Question

  • I wanted a step by step answer for Active Directory Sites and Services in win 2003 OR 2008. I have two laptops to play around with. So, my question is if I install Server OS on both the laptops, how could I configure and do the practice taking Active Directory Sites and Services? If it is possible to do the practice, I kindly request you to help me out if there is any step by step guide or reference that I could follow and practice on same.

    Please guys help me with this!!!!

  • Hello csmuni,
    I try to give you a tasks list:

    1. Install Windows Server OS on both laptops
    2. Configure Network Adapter TCP/IP v4 Properties (under Network Connections*) on both:

      e.g.

      Laptop 1
      IP Address: 172.16.1.10
      Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0
      Primary DNS: 172.16.1.10

      Laptop 2
      IP Address: 172.16.1.20
      Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0
      Primary DNS: 172.16.1.10

    3. Install Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) on Laptop 1 by running DCPROMO (TechNet Library): being first run, create new Active Directory Forest, Domain, DNS.
    4. Install AD DS on Laptop 2 by running DCPROMO, but joining to existing AD environment created on step before.
    5. After checking new Active Directory env. is working fine, you can start playing with Active Directory Site and Services (Technet Library)

    * - They must be connected on LAN network (preferably isolated); you can also play with a router between two notebooks simulating two geographically connected networks:

    e.g.

    Laptop 1
    IP Address: 172.16.1.10
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0
    Gateway: 172.16.1.254 (router ethernet interface 1 IP Address)

    Laptop 2
    IP Address: 172.18.1.10
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0
    Gateway: 172.18.1.254 (router ethernet interface 2 IP Address)

    This is a general tasks list; please, feel free to someone to implement or correct it.

    Bye,
    Luca

  • Hi Luca!

    You have given me a task to do for the sites and services question that I have asked you!! but now I am facing a different problem when I get a router in the middle.  I have a  DLink 624 wireless router in my room and my comcast soho router downstairs which is the main router to access internet...

    My question is can i use my Dlink 624 wireless router to connect to Comcast router (downstairs) wirelessly, so that I can directly connect to my Dlink router in my room and browse the web?? Also, I want to use the same Wireless Dlink Router 624 to separate my lab network (The two laptops that i use to play around with) from the actual home network (Comcast home wireless network)???

    I tried all ways but i am not able to do that....please suggest if it is possible to connect my Dlink to comcast via wireless...(not through cable...because the distance is quite far)

    Important point

    My comcast router has DHCP enabled..it gives ips to all my home computers and other mobile devices

    Thanks again!

  • Hi Syed

    Thanks again!

  • Hello csmuni,
    to answer to your first question: you could configure Dlink 624 wireless router as comcast soho router wireless signal repeater; you should place it where wireless signal from downstairs is good. Useful links:

    Is your lab wired or wireless connected ? Could Dlink 624 be configured with multiple IP Address ? To configure your lab you need three IP Addresses: one for home/office network, one for laptop 1 network and laptop 2 network at last; And then, configure configure routing rules on Dlink 624 to route packets from laptop 1 network to laptop 2 network.

    Bye,
    Luca
