How To Configure A Training Server


  • Hi,

    I want to create a training rig for the guys in my section and I have a machine with 2008 R2 installed. I want it to be a private network with 1 server and a few clients connected to it via Ethernet cable and a switch.

    I'm trying to use the Active Directory Domain Services Installation Wizard and I'm getting a Configure TCP/IP error message.

    Currently I have the Local Area Connection enabled and the Wireless Network connection disabled. There is nothing connected to the RJ45 port on my machine as I still need to get the cables, clients, and switches.

    I set the IPv4 static settings on the Local Area Connection to the following - IP address:, Subnet mask:, Default gateway:, and Preferred DNS server:

    I want to finish setting up the AD DS install wizard but I'm stuck.

    I'm doing something wrong but I'm not sure what it is.

    Any help is appreciated.
