vSphere HomeLab – Step-by-Step Guide – Installation of Active Directory & DNS on Windows Server 2012
I have uploaded here the first part in the vSphere 5.5 Home Lab series. Part 1 is a step-by-step guide on the installation of Active Directory & DNS on Windows Server 2012. Look out for the next one in the series which will be on the vCenter 5.5 Appliance (VCVA).
The first requirement for a home lab is a fully functioning Active Directory / DNS set-up. For your home lab this guide goes through the installation steps for a successful AD and DNS installation. After the installation, we go through the process of adding DNS “A” records for various parts of your lab.
- Configure – Hostname & Static IP Address
- Setup ADDS Role (Active Directory Domain Service)
- Promote to Domain Controller
- Configure – Add DNS “A” records for your LAB
