4. Active Directory > Deploying Active Directory Domain Services

Deploying Active Directory Domain Services

With both Server Manager and Active Directory refreshed with updated management interfaces in Server 2012, the install process may be not as familiar even to those who have installed AD DS before. Before installing Active Directory Domain Services, ensure that DNS Server is running on the network; otherwise, you will be prompted to install DNS after the AD install.

Installing Active Directory

To deploy Active Directory Domain Services on a local Server 2012 machine, launch Server Manager and select “Add roles and features” in the “Configure this local server” area of the dashboard.

Select “Role-based or feature-based installation,” and click Next. Then select the local server (or the server to which you want to deploy AD DS) as the destination server. Choose Active Directory Domain Services. (See Figure 4-1.)
