I have never worked with Windows 2003 server so this is my first time in setting up Active Directory on this operating system.
I have previously setup Active Directory on a Windows 2000 server......but it was quite some time ago and I totally , completely forgot how I did it. Plus it was in a school within a class.

Thus what do i need to do in order to do the active directory installation on this Windows 2003 server ?
I am familiar with the Compaq Smartstart and did set that up myself. I am familiar with the partitioning process also , as well as the actual installation of services like dhcp, dns, wins....etc...

What is required as a pre-requisite in order to setup this active directory successfully the first time around on the 2003 server.

Must I update the service pack level for the 2003 server prior to doing the Active Directory.

Thank you,

Richard

You need to make sure it's connected to the network.  Use the server administrative wizard to start AD and DNS installation.....It's not much different from your W2K AD..

You don't have to install SP first - but do that if you are ready to install the SP....

cheers
