4. Deploying Domain Controllers > Before you begin

Before you begin

To complete the practice exercises in this chapter

  • You need at least two servers that have a clean install of Windows Server 2012 and are configured as standalone servers in a workgroup. They can be either physical servers or virtual machines, and their TCP/IP settings should be configured to provide connectivity with the Internet.

  • You might need additional servers to perform some of the optional exercises in the “Suggested practice exercises” section. You might also need access to installation media for earlier Windows Server versions for some of these exercises.

  • You should be familiar with basic AD DS concepts such as forests, domains, organizational units (OUs), sites, domain controllers, schema, replication, and so on.

  • It will be helpful if you also have at least rudimentary knowledge of using Windows PowerShell on earlier versions of Windows Server.
