21.1. Getting Ready to Deploy

This chapter takes you through the actual installation of the domain controllers for an Active Directory domain. We will be using our fictitious city, Millennium City (MCITY), as the demo. So far, we have put several structures into place according to the blueprint we discuss next. You may take this blueprint and deployment plan and use it as a template for your own project, expanding or cutting and pasting to and from it as you need, or just use the examples to establish your own strategy. If the plan appears to be a real-life example, that's because it is. This Windows Server 2008 network and namespace have actually been deployed.

What we espouse here is not the gospel on Active Directory deployment by any means. It works for our environment, situation, and the diversity of our demo organization. Smaller companies may find it too expensive to implement some of our suggestions; others may garner some deep insight. Our purpose is to show a rich implementation.
