Installing a Domain Controller

G-day all,

I need to install and configure a pc to be a Domain Controller in a Test Enviroment.

As this is my first time, would anyone have a simple list of instructions on how to do this.

I am stuck big time and need to get this done as soon as.

Acronin,

Firstly for a Domain Controller to work (and Active Directory) you need to have DNS running on your server.  Install Windows 2000 on a computer, and then click start, run and type DCPROMO.

This will walk you through the steps to setup a Domain Contoller.

Before you start make sure you have a network card installed with a static IP address assigned

If you need more detailed help please let me know.

I think this is a great guide for beginners:

You didn't mention if this was for 2000 or 2003, but the steps are similar:
