Installing the Windows operating systemFrom no operating system (OS) to being able to login

Week 1aP1 Enterprise Systems Servers and Storage

A note on the lab sheets and reference materialNote that there will not be step-by-step instructions in lab sheets but key information needed to complete various tasks.For the step-by-step instructions, you can refer to the reference material mentioned.When you go through the labs, it is essential that you develop familiarity with the software you are using. Trying to figure out where to find certain steps in the reference material during the lab test will not be very effective.3

How to: Install the Windows Server OS via DVD onto Oracle VirtualBoxCreate a new VM on Oracle VirtualBox with the following settings:Name: Windows 2008 R264 bit Windows OS1024GB RAM1 x network adapter attached to Bridged Network30 GB storage spaceInstall the Windows 2008R2 Standard Edition Full InstallationYou can choose to experiment with the Enterprise and Data Centre editions laterIf you are installing the Windows OS on Virtualbox, remember to install the VirtualBox Guest Additions for better control of the VMAfter you have successfully installed Windows Server OS (and VirtualBox Guest Addition), export the virtual machine as an template/appliance (OVA file).The templates will allow you to make copies of the same instance of the VMs quickly

Export your VM as a template so that you can make clones of the VM later (cloning of VMs work most of the time but not all the time)

Rename your virtual machine to rootdc.castalia.org or rootdc

How to: Configure the Windows Server OS immediately after installation (or importing OVA)Change the time zone to Singapore time zone (if you havent)Configure ip address (static or dhcp)Refer to the earlier section on Setup the lab environment for a specific server/serviceConfigure the dnsRefer to the earlier section on Setup the lab environment for a specific server/serviceConfigure the default gatewayRefer to the earlier section on Setup the lab environment for a specific server/serviceConfigure the computer nameRefer to the earlier section on Setup the lab environment for a specific server/serviceJoin domain (if required)Goto Control Panel > System > Change Settings > Change Computer NameChange the Domain Name (instead of Workgroup)The domain we use in the lab session is castalia.org although you can use any domain name you prefer

Just a reminder, if the earlier section on Setup the lab environment prescribes that rootdc.castalia.org should have a static ip address of 192.168.x.101 Replace 192.168.x.101. x is your class register number or a number that is different to avoid any clashes in ip addresses on the network.

Do it now: Configure the Windows Server OS for rootdc.castalia.orgApply the steps in the previous page to rootdc.castalia.org after its installation.

Change the time zone to Singapore time zone (if you havent)Configure ip address (static or dhcp)Refer to the earlier section on Setup the lab environment for a specific server/service192.168.x.101Configure the dnsRefer to the earlier section on Setup the lab environment for a specific server/service192.168.x.101Configure the default gatewayRefer to the earlier section on Setup the lab environment for a specific server/service192.168.x.151Configure the computer nameRefer to the earlier section on Setup the lab environment for a specific server/servicerootdc

Join domain (if required)The domain we use in the lab session is castalia.org although you can use any domain name you preferYou dont need to do this because there is no domain yet

You should apply these same steps (install and configure) later for other servers/services mentioned in the Setup the lab environment section.6

Know that: there are other ways of installing the Windows Server OSYou can automate the process of installation using Windows Deployment Services. This is similar to the kickstart mechanism in Linux OS installations.

How to: Setup a new forest with Active Directory Domain Services (part 1)Install a Windows Server 2008 R2 (if not already)For steps to install AD DS, refer to Hands-on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 by Michael Palmer, Chapter 4 page 135-138

The following are specific configurations that might be required before and during the installation process.

Change the computer name to rootdcChange the time zone to Singapore time zone (if you havent)Set static IP address to 192.168.x.101 (if you havent)Leave the DNS setting emptySet the gateway to 192.168.x.151 (if you havent)

Add a new role Active Directory Domain ServicesPromote the Windows Server to be a Domain Controller by running dcpromo.exeCreate a new domain in a new forestDomain name: castalia.orgForest functional level: Windows 2008Domain functional level: Windows 2008 R2Select Global Catalog and DNS services and DHCP services

Change the domain controllers computer name to rootdc i.e. rootdc.castalia.org (if you didnt do so earlier, its alright to change it at this stage)Goto Server Manager > Roles > Active Directory Domain Services and check whether all the services related to AD DS was started without errorsnslookup> rootdc.castalia.org(this should give you 192.168.x.101)> 192.168.x.101(this wont work now until you added the reverse lookup zone)Goto Administrative Tools > DNS Manager > Reverse Lookup Zones, add new Zone 192.168.x.In DNS Manager under Reverse Lookup Zones, add new Pointer 192.168.x.101 rootdc.castalia.orgnslookup> rootdc.castalia.org> 192.168.x.101 (should work now)Check which DNS is nslookup querying20

How to: Setup a new forest with Active Directory Domain Services (part 2)These are steps you might go through when install the DHCP service when you promote the DC.Parent domain: castalia.orgPrefer DNS server: REFER TO DHCP CONFIGURATION WINS not requiredIP address range: REFER TO DHCP CONFIGURATIONSubnet mask: REFER TO DHCP CONFIGURATIONDefault gateway: REFER TO DHCP CONFIGURATIONUse current credentials

21

How to: Perform some simple checks on ADCheck whether the DC is working properly.Server ManagerPS> dcdiagPS> repadmin /showreps

From a client,PS> netdiag

Try synchronizing all,PS > repadmin /synchall
