This module discussed how to use the Installation Wizard
to install Active Directory.
This means that you should now be able to:
- Install Active Directory
- Prepare for installation
- Establish a root domain
- Add a domain controller
- Create a child domain
- Create a tree in a forest
- Verify the installation of Active Directory
This module introduced you to the following terms:
- Child domains: A domain located in the namespace tree directly under another domain name (the parent domain), which contains the name of the parent in its own name. Example: sales.tacteam.net is a child domain of the tacteam.net parent domain.
- Microsoft Management Console (MMC): A framework for hosting administrative tools, called consoles. A console may contain tools, folders or other containers, World Wide Web pages, and other administrative items. These items are displayed in the left pane of the console, called a console tree. A console has one or more windows that can provide views of the console tree.
- NetBIOS: Network Basic Input/Output System; an API used by programs on a local network that provides a uniform set of commands for requesting lower level services.
- Root domain: The first domain created in a domain tree.
- SRV resource records: Used in a DNS zone to register and locate well known TCP/IP services.
In the next module, you will learn in depth about the physical structure of Active Directory.
