guys,

i need some guidence in terms of building a new environment from scratch (in a way). I have effectevly a green field situation where i have to build entire new environment with Server 2008 R2 SP1 as operating system within the same domain.

Hypervisor of choice is MS Hyper-V 2008 R2. What approach would you recommend? what core infrastructure components would you start of with first?

Are you looking for recommendations on hardware (servers, SANS, networking, etc?) or are you asking how one would setup AD?

Thanks

If you are starting from scratch you can stand up AD and install DNS during the promotion of your first domain controller.  

You can install DHCP after the fact.

I'd get two DCs up with DNS/GC enabled and verify the health of them (event logs, dcdiag, repadmin) then install DHCP and other components from there.

Thanks

You should start with AD allow DNS to be installed during AD install process

Second I would go for DHCP after this

This is your basic infrastructure services.
