Windows Server AD Setup (QEMU)

Initial Requirements

To begin this tutorial you will need to complete the previous tutorial on DNS. where we setup an A entry pointing to the server's private IP:

AD Installation

As you can see here, having a DNS service is required to install the Active Directory.

Now you see the whole point, so let's setup our AD correctly by promoting our server to domain controller but before we do so, let's add another A record that points to the server as the root domain:

First we add a forest:

Then just hit next at everything and hit install at the end and let windows server reboot

Post-AD Install

As you reboot you can see you've successfully installed the active directory:

Once in here you can see that you can access the Active Directory Administrative Center :

And here we can see we're able to create groups, users, computers, Organizational Units, and that's going to be the topic for the next tutorial.


Until there is Nothing left.
