I have a new 2012 r2 server configured with AD & DNS. This is our primary AD server. I have a second 2012 r2 server that I want to join to this domain, but I do not want AD services on this device (it is a file and application server).
I am used to adding a machine using the "change settings" feature under the system properties and using the wizard. It seems there is no wizard in the 2012 r2. How do I go about adding this 2nd server (dataserver) to the established domain running under (adserver)? I did go into change setting on the dataserver and change the domain to be the same as the adserver, but there are kerbos errors when I try to manage the dataserver from the adserver.
Any suggestions or steps to configure this properly?
I have the AD server @ 192.168.1.200 running AD & DNS
The data server is @ 192.168.1.201 with a fixed DNS of 192.168.1.200
The admin names and passwords are the same on both
the 2012 r2 is licensed and activated on both
I would like the AD to be able to manage the dataserver via the server manager console and for them to be connected correctly.
The dataserver will handle all the user files, data files and programs while the ADserver will authenticate, manage and provide permissions to the folders and shares on the data server.
Help would be appreciated.
