Server 2012 Essentials R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Guys,

    Is it possible to install NAT on the essentials r2 server? I need to create acces for clients in my testenvironment. Those clients are member of a test 2012 r2 domain. Its server has 2 cards, one with static ip for the internal testdomain, the other one with a dhcp addres, connecting to my actaal domain.

    thanks.

  • Essentials is not supported with 2 NICs.

    You could enable NAT as suggested by Justin, but the behaviour of the essentials features would be erratic and unpredictable.

    I would suggest you look at an alternate option like using VLANs on a switch/router.

    I strongly recommend using a network box for NAT and AD for managing the DNS behind the NAT

    This topology is the most reliable way to do things

  • you can install IPCOP or similar as a VM which can act as a nat device.

  • Hi enlil,

    Based on your description, it seems that the functionality is under the Remote Access role (a sub-role: Routing).

    Please refer to the following and add the role. Please open Explorer, right-click Computer, select Manage. Add Role and Features-> Remote Access role. Under the Remote Access role, then will see Routing.

    Please check if it’s the functionality that you want to use. If I misunderstand, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

    Hope this helps.

    Best regards,

    Justin Gu
