Brand New Active Directory Domain Best Practices
Posted on 2013-05-13
Hello, this is more of a general question, but I am tasked with setting up a network that has never had a domain or central networking of any kind. They've been on a workgroup for quite a while. My plan is to start small. This isn't a very big deployment, and I was thinking of doing it as follows. Two hyper V servers with VMs for the Domain Controller/DNS/DHCP/File Services. One VM for the internal MIS system (SQL and ASP.NET host), and one VM for an SFTP server. Any best practices to use when setting up a brand new network, I've really only administered existing networks before. Thanks!
