Hi,

Is it necessary that the Computer be connected to a network before installing ADS in Widnows 2000?

Can i install ADS on a server without connecting it to a LAN?

Thank you,
Aragorn ;-)

ADS = Active Directory?

No I dont believe you can. I think I tried it before and it needs a NIC with an active connection and an IP address.

Well, sort of. You need to connect the NIC to some other hardware, or dcpromo will fail.

When I do a lot of my installations where I am replacing an existing server, I will connect the Server in to just a four-port hub that is connected to nothing.  This allows me to setup the active directory while the other server is still in full production.  Also allowing easy connectivity for the transfer of data.
