I am trying to set up my first domain controller and I have no idea what I am doing.  It is server 2008.  It says that I need to give static ips in the domain setup wizard, so I gave my ipv4 192.168.0.100.  I an not sure what to do about the subnetprefix length, the default gateway, or anything else, actually.  I am very new to this and it is only an internal network.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

First you need to determine how many clients you have so you can now the subnet mask needed, if number of users are less than 254 use the default one 255.255.255.0, the default gateway is your PC by witch your company will connect to internet through.

Please provide full description about the architecture of IT in your environment otherwise very hard to help

That isn't an 1pv6 format.  I am not looking for help with a subnet mask in ipv4.  I am only concerned with ipv6.  It might be new with server 2008.

Thanks, but I still can't figure it out.

This is the error I am getting
"This computer has at least one physical network adapter that does not have static IP address(es) assigned to its IP Properties. You should assign static IP address(es) to all physical network adapters for reliable Domain Name System (DNS) operation, for both IPv4 and IPv6 when available. See Help for more information."

So I go into my network connection, click my internet protocol version 4, and type in
192.169.1.100 for my ip, and 255.255.255.0 for my subnet mask.  I don't fill in a gateway, or dns server.

I go into internet protocol version 6, and type in
fec1:4a2b::1f3f for my ipv6 address, 120 for the subnet prefix length, and don't put anything in for the default gateway, since I don't know what that is.

I try to set up the domain again, and still have the same error I mentioned above.

how many network adapters you have on this machine?
How do you connect to the internet so we can determine the gateway

thanks for working with me, sorry if I am coming slow, I am really new to networking, which is why I got this computer.

I just built it and am using the network port on the mother board.  This is my only connection to the internet.  Actually, I just have two plugs in the thing, one is a power cord, one is a network cable.

I connect to a lynksys router which happens to he wireless, even though it is not being used at the moment.

I just plug it in, and it connects to the internet.  It had "obtain an ip address automatically" selected and could connect.  I can even see it via remote desktop.  I changed its ip to 192.168.1.100.

In control panel->network connections, I see "Local Area Connection" status->enabled, everything else blank.  I also see "Local Area Connection 3" Status->Unidentified network Connectivity->access to local only, network category->public network.   Both have the same device name which I think is the card on the motherboard.

Is this what you were looking for?

ok ok
Now I got it, you need to add another network interface card and give it a static IP, and in that case your DSL router IP is your gateway.

I am extremely confused, why do I need another network card?

How are you supposing to give internet access to your clients?
You have to have one card directed to the router, and another card connected to the clients network.

Too many email signature updates to deal with?

Do you feel like you are taking up all of your time constantly visiting users’ desks to make changes to email signatures? Wish you could manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users? Well, there is an easy way!

I have a router and all my computers get internet access from it.  Each computer has a wire going into the router and the routher has a wire going to the modem.  All computers currently have internet access.  That is not the problem.

ok in that case your gateway is the IP of the router,
go to any other machine and type "ipconfig -all" in the coomand prompt. you can give your server a static IP within the rage of the router's IP.

See this:http://www.windowsreference.com/windows-server-2008/step-by-step-guide-for-windows-server-2008-domain-controller-and-dns-server-setup/

Thanks for your help once again, but I don't think that I explained myself and what the problem is correctly.  Take a look at the link that you posted and check the part that says:

"If you dont have static ip assigned to your server you will see similar to the following screen now you need to assign static ip and start the above process."

That is the step that I am on.  I did what I said above with the ipv4 and ipv6 and I still see this message.  I did not enter anything as the gateway, since I don't think that is the issue here.

Again, sorry if I am dense.  Here is the output of my ipconfig / all.  I don't know what it means.

Ok that shows that your machjne doesn't have default have default gateway, and has 192.168.1.100 as IP.

Now connected directly to the router and make it take IP automatically, and run ipconfig again just to see information about network, so we can assign the right IP address and right gateway

So now you know what is your gateway, give the same DHCP got IP, statically and your problem is solved

Thanks, I got it.  Just to simplify:


Go to a command prompt, type in : ipconfig \all

Find gateway, find ipaddress.

Go into the network adapter, and give it an ip, in my case 192.168.0.100. give it the gateway (ip of the router found in the ipconfig) 192.168.0.1, give it a subnet mask 255.255.255.0.

Then go to ipv6, and give the same gateway and ip you used above using an ipv4 to ipv6 converter.
So your ipv6 ip is your ipv4 ip translated, same with gateway.

That's it.
