Before you can manage your environment, you must create an Active Directory structure. This structure includes organizational units (OUs) for users and computers, as well as security groups for assigning file share permissions. Use Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) and the Active Directory Computers and Users snap-in to develop this structure. Figure 9.5 shows the process for deploying the logical infrastructure for your simple managed environment.
For all subsequent steps, you must log on to the domain controller with a domain administrator account unless otherwise instructed.
