Lab Series 01: Part 2 – Creating a new 2 Site Windows Server 2012 Domain (mostly by PowerShell)

Following on from the lab design here:

DC101 & DC201 - Sysprep

Command Prompt CMD>:
cd c:\Windows\System32\Sysprep
sysprep /generalize /oobe /reboot

{REBOOTS}

- Re-enter Product Key
- Accept the license terms for using Windows
- Select Country, Language, and Keyboard layout
- Enter Administrator password and Finish!

DC101 – First DC

Login locally as Administrator

PowerShell PS>:
rename-computer DC101
restart-computer

{REBOOTS}

Login locally as Administrator

PowerShell PS>:
New-NetIPAddress -IPAddress 10.1.1.11 -InterfaceAlias "Ethernet" -DefaultGateway 10.1.1.5 –AddressFamily IPv4 -PrefixLength 24
Install-WindowsFeature AD-Domain-Services -IncludeManagementTools
Install-ADDSForest -DomainName lab.priv

{REBOOTS}

Login as LAB\Administrator

PowerShell PS>:
Add-DnsServerPrimaryZone 1.1.10.in-addr.arpa -ZoneFile 1.1.10.in-addr.arpa.dns
Add-DnsServerPrimaryZone 1.2.10.in-addr.arpa -ZoneFile 1.2.10.in-addr.arpa.dns

GUI – Active Directory Sites and Services:
- Rename the Default-First-Site-Name to SITE01
- Create a second site called SITE02
- Create a subnet 10.1.0.0/16 and assign to SITE01
- Create a subnet 10.2.0.0/16 and assign to SITE02
Note: I’m sure this can be done via PowerShell!

DC201 – Second DC

Login locally as Administrator

PowerShell PS>:
rename-computer DC201
restart-computer

{REBOOTS}

Login locally as Administrator

PowerShell PS>:
New-NetIPAddress -IPAddress 10.2.1.11 -InterfaceAlias "Ethernet" -DefaultGateway 10.2.1.5 –AddressFamily IPv4 -PrefixLength 24
Set-DnsClientServerAddress -InterfaceAlias "Ethernet" -ServerAddresses 10.1.1.11
Add-Computer -DomainName lab.priv
restart-computer

{REBOOTS}

Login as LAB\Administrator

PowerShell PS>:
Install-WindowsFeature AD-Domain-Services -IncludeManagementTools
Install-ADDSDomainController –DomainName lab.priv –SiteName SITE02

{REBOOTS}

Login as LAB\Administrator

PowerShell PS>:
Set-DnsClientServerAddress -InterfaceAlias "Ethernet" -ServerAddresses 10.1.1.11,10.2.1.11

DC101 – Updating Secondary DNS to point to Second DC

PowerShell PS>:
Set-DnsClientServerAddress -InterfaceAlias "Ethernet" -ServerAddresses 10.1.1.11,10.2.1.11

That’s the new 2012 Domain Controllers done!

Note: stop-computer does just that!
