How do I install Active Directory on my Windows Server 2003 server?
First make sure you read and understandActive Directory Installation Requirements. If you don't comply with all the requirements of that article you will not be able to set up your AD (for example: you don't have a NIC or you're using a computer that's not connectedto a LAN).
 
Note:
This article is only good for understanding how to install the
FIRST DC
in a
NEW AD
Domain, in a
NEW TREE
, in a
NEWFOREST
. Meaning - don't do it for any other scenario, such as a new replica DC in an existing domain.
In order to install a WindowsServer 2003 DC in an EXISTING Windows 2000 Domain follow theWindows 2003 ADPreptip.
Windows 2000 Note:
If you plan to install a new Windows 2000 DC please readHow to Install Active Directory on Windows2000.
Windows Server 2003 Note:
If you plan to install a new Windows Server 2003 DC in an existing AD forest please read thepage BEFORE you go on, otherwise you'll end up with the following error:Here is a quick list of what you must have:
An NTFS partition with enough free space
An Administrator's username and password
The correct operating system version
A NIC
Properly configured TCP/IP (IP address, subnet mask and - optional - default gateway)
A network connection (to a hub or to another computer via a crossover cable)
 
An operational DNS server (which can be installed on the DC itself)
A Domain name that you want to use
The Windows Server 2003 CD media (or at least the i386 folder)
Brains (recommended, not required...)This article assumes that all of the above requirements are fulfilled.
Step 1: Configure the computer's suffix
(Not mandatory, can be done via the Dcpromo process).1.Right click My Computer and choose Properties.2.Click the Computer Name tab, then Change.
 
3.
Set the computer's NetBIOS name. In Windows Server 2003, this
CAN
be changed after the computer has beenpromoted to Domain Controller.4.Click More.
5.
In the Primary DNS suffix of this computer box enter the would-be domain name. Make sure you got it right. No spellingmistakes, no "oh, I thought I did it right...". Although the domain name
CAN
be changed after the computer has beenpromoted to Domain Controller, this is not a procedure that one should consider lightly, especially because on the possibleconsequences. Read more about it on myWindows 2003 Domain Rename Toolpage.
