I am preparing to setup Active Directory on a new Windows 2003 server
Posted on 2003-12-08
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.
