A central component of the Windows platform, Active Directory directory service provides the means to manage the identities and relationships that make up network environments. Windows Server 2003 makes Active Directory simpler to manage, easing migration and deployment.

Active directory has been around since the release of Windows 2000 several years ago, and is now a standard sight in many offices. Its inclusion marked a radical change at the heart of the Windows Server platform, one that people are still adjusting to today.

For organizations using Win 2k3 AD infrastructure that require flexible support for directory-enabled applications, Microsoft has developed Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM). ADAM is a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory service that runs as a user service, rather than as a system service. Active Directory Application Mode represents a breakthrough in directory services technology that provides flexibility and helps organizations avoid increased infrastructure costs.

LDAP is an acronym for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol; it is a simplified version of the X.500 protocol. The directory setup in this training manual will be later used for authentication. Nevertheless, LDAP can be used in numerous ways: authentication, shared directory (for mail clients), address book, etc.

In this Hands-on Systems Integration Training Lab, we’re going undertake a step-by-step installation, configuration of Windows Server 2003 Active Directory DC.

This project was demonstrated entirely using VMware, however, once you perfect the setup you can migrated them into physical servers if you so wish. You may also Virtual PC instead of VMware for your demo setup.

Windows Server 2003 makes Active Directory simpler to manage, easing migration and deployment. Active directory has been around since the release of Windows 2000 several years ago, and is now a standard sight in many offices. Its inclusion marked a radical change at the heart of the Windows Server platform, one that people are still adjusting to today. For organizations using Win 2k3 AD infrastructure that require flexible support for directory-enabled applications, Microsoft has developed Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM).

Part 1: Install & setup Windows Server 2k3 Active Directory
It’s assumed that you have already installed Windows server 2k3 or know how to install Windows server 2003. Step 1: Install Windows Ser 2003 and Setup Active Directory DC Here is a summary. Once you decide on the domain name, in our case, mycompany.loc, on servername server03, then just follow this procedure: 1. Install Win2k3 Enterprise server or whatever option you have. 2.

Fig. 1: Configure static IP address as shown.

3. Send the server to Windows Updates site to super-juice it with heavy dose of the latest Service Packs, security updates and hot-fixes – and thereby acquiring a clean bill of health for our setup process. 4. finally open your CMD. First ensure that your static IP address is configured properly by issuing the following command, see also Fig. 2: c:\ipconfig /all 5. Next issue the dcpromo command to promote your server to AD DC as follows (see Fig. 2): c:\dcpromo 6. Follow the link below to access the full document.
