Active Directory Installation Wizard Technical Reference

The Active Directory Installation Wizard is used to install the Active Directory directory service on a computer running Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and Microsoft Windows Server 2003. The wizard provides a user interface for gathering information about your computing environment. It also checks prerequisites for installing Active Directory, such as available disk space and operating system version, to ensure that the server is capable of becoming a domain controller. If all prerequisites are met, the Active Directory Installation Wizard uses the information gathered to configure Active Directory.

This subject explains what the Active Directory Installation Wizard is and how it works for Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 Server. For information about using the Active Directory Domain Services Installation Wizard in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008, see AD DS Installation and Removal Step-by-Step Guide (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=139657).
