Joseph Haney ITT-307 Brandon Bass February 11, 2018 Hardening a Virtual Machine Active Directory environment, create some users that can only access specific things, and to enable the firewall on the server.To setup an Active Directory environment:First click on add roles and features.
Make sure to add the features like before and finish the installation. Active Directory won’t be configured after you install it. You must configure it so it’ll work.
In order to configure it, you must promote the server to a domain controller. Click the link that says “promote this server…”
The configuration for the domain controller will appear and select the option “add a new forest.” In the root domain name type “win.companyname.net.” In this instance, I have typed “win.matrixconsulting.net” to reflect the name of my company, Matrix Consulting. Then click Next. Type in a password for the DSRM in case you need to recover the data from the forest due to unforeseen circumstances. Finish out the setup and you will have successfully promoted the server to a domain controller and setup active directory.
After you are done, Active Directory will look like this. Your domain (win.matrixconsulting.net) will appear as a forest.
To join a domain, open the system settings through the control panel. Beside the computer name, click change settings.
Click the change button to change the hostname of the computer and to add or remove the workstation to a domain or workgroup.
Here, you can type in your domain name and hit OK. It might ask you for administrator
