Series Post 1, Setting up the Domain Control, with DNS & DHCP
This post will be going over creating the Domain Controller for the Lab. This will be the basic setup, we'll be revisiting the Domain Controller later when we need to extend the schema and start adding additional users and groups into the mix, but for now, we're just going to get it functional, with DNS & DHCP. This post is 99% pictures, not much text. If you have questions along the way, reach out via twitter.
LAN 1: Static IP (Internal Lab Network) 192.168.1.199
On the DC, you also need to install the C++ Runtime which will allow you to extend the schema for CM. You can grab the C++ you need from the ConfigMgr Disc.
Disc\SMSSETUP\BIN\X64\vcredist_x64.exe - If you don't have that installed, you'll get errors when you try to extend schema.
So that is the fundamentals of setting up the DC. We'll get into the Group Policy, Users and Groups in an upcoming post. If you're following a long, at this point, you should have your gateway and domain controller. You'll want to go back and add your gateway server into the domain if you did create that before the DC.
