Step 2: Setting up the Trey Research Domain

Updated: January 18, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2

Before you install AD FS and the AD RMS Federation Identity Support role service, you should install and configure the Trey Research infrastructure. In this step, you will install the required computers that make up the Trey Research domain:

Use the following table as reference when setting up the appropriate computer names, operating systems, and network settings that are required to complete the steps in this guide.

ImportantImportant
Before you configure your computers with static Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, we recommend that you first complete Windows product activation while each of your computers still has Internet connectivity.

Depending on your environment, you can evaluate AD RMS in either a Windows Server 2008 domain or a Windows Server 2003 domain. Use one of the following sections depending on the domain to be used.

To configure the domain controller TREY-DC, you must install Windows Server 2003, configure TCP/IP properties, install Active Directory, and raise the Active Directory domain functional level to Windows Server 2003.

First, install Windows Server 2003 with SP2 on the TREY-DC computer.

  1. Start your computer by using the Windows Server 2003 product CD. (You can use any edition of Windows Server 2003 except the Web Edition to establish the domain)

  2. Follow the instructions that appear on your computer screen, and when prompted for a computer name, type TREY-DC.

In this step configure TCP/IP properties so that TREY-DC has a static IP address of 10.0.0.30.

  1. Log on to TREY-DC with the TREY-DC\Administrator account or another user account in the local Administrators group.

  2. Click Start, point to Control Panel, point to Network Connections, click Local Area Connection, and then click Properties.

  3. On the General tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then click Properties.

  4. Click the Use the following IP address option. In the IP address box, type 10.0.0.30. In the Subnet mask box, type 255.255.255.0.

  5. Click OK, and then click Close to close the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box.

In this step, you are going to create a domain controller for Trey Research. It is important that you first configure the IP addresses as specified in the previous table before you attempt to install Active Directory. This helps ensure that DNS records are configured appropriately.

noteNote
If you need to use fewer computers to test this scenario, you can use the Dcpromo tool to create two new Active Directory forests on both of the federation servers rather than configuring separate domain controllers. As a security best practice, domain controllers should not run as both federation servers and domain controllers in a production environment.

  1. Click Start, and click Run. In the Open box, type dcpromo, and then click OK.

  2. On the Welcome page of the Active Directory Installation Wizard, click Next.

  3. Click Next, select the Domain controller for a new domain option, and then click Next.

  4. Select the Domain in a new forest option, and click Next.

  5. In Full DNS name for new domain, type treyresearch.net and then click Next.

  6. In Domain NetBIOS name, type treyresearch, and then click Next three times.

  7. Select the Install and configure the DNS server on this computer and set this computer to use this DNS server as its preferred DNS server option, and then click Next.

  8. Select the Permissions compatible only with Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003 operating systems option, and then click Next.

  9. In the Restore Mode Password and Confirm Password boxes, type a strong password, and then click Next.

  10. Click Next.

  11. When the Active Directory Installation Wizard is done, click Finish.

  12. Click Restart Now.

In this step, we will raise the Active Directory domain functional level to Windows Server 2003. This functional level allows the use of Active Directory universal groups.

  1. Log on to TREY-DC with the TREYRESEARCH\Administrator account or another user account in the local Administrators group.

  2. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.

  3. Right-click treyresearch.net, and then click Raise Domain Functional Level.

  4. In the list under Select an available domain functional level, click Windows Server 2003, and then click Raise.

    noteNote
    You cannot change the domain functional level once you have raised it.

  5. Click OK, and then click OK again.

DNS forwarders are used in this guide to forward DNS requests that cannot be resolved from the treyresearch.net domain to the cpandl.com domain, and vice versa.

  1. Log on to TREY-DC with the TREYRESEARCH\Administrator account or another user account in the local Administrators group.

  2. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click DNS.

  3. Right-click TREY-DC, and then click Properties.

  4. Click the Forwarders tab.

  5. In the Selected domain's forward IP address list section, type 10.0.0.1, and then click Add.

  6. Click OK.

To configure the domain controller TREY-DC, you must install Windows Server 2008, configure TCP/IP properties, and install Active Directory Domain Services.

First, install Windows Server 2008.

  1. Start your computer by using the Windows Server 2008 product CD.

  2. Follow the instructions that appear on your screen, and when prompted for a computer name, type TREY-DC.

Next, configure TCP/IP properties so that TREY-DC has a IPv4 static IP address of 10.0.0.30.

  1. Log on to TREY-DC with the TREY-DC\Administrator account or another user account in the local Administrators group.

  2. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet, click Network and Sharing Center, click Manage Network Connections, right-click Local Area Connection, and then click Properties.

  3. On the Networking tab, click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), and then click Properties.

  4. Click the Use the following IP address option. In IP address, type 10.0.0.30, in Subnet mask, type 255.255.255.0.

  5. Click the Use the following DNS server addresses option. In Preferred DNS server, type 10.0.0.30, and then click OK.

  6. On the Networking tab, clear the Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) check box.

    noteNote
    If you want to leave IPv6 enabled, you must assign a static IPv6 address before configuring the computer as a domain controller.

  7. Click OK, and then click Close to close the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box.

In this step, you are going to create a domain controller for Trey Research. It is important that you first configure the IP addresses as specified in the previous procedure before you attempt to install Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). This helps ensure that DNS records are configured appropriately.

noteNote
If you need to use fewer computers to test this scenario, you can use the Dcpromo tool to create two new Active Directory forests on both of the federation servers rather than configuring separate domain controllers. As a security best practice, domain controllers should not run as both federation servers and domain controllers in a production environment.

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.

  2. In the Open box, type dcpromo, and then click OK.

  3. On the Welcome to the Active Directory Domain Services Installation Wizard page, click Next.

  4. Click the Domain controller for a new domain option, and then click Next.

  5. Click the Create a new domain in anew forest option, and then click Next.

  6. In the FQDN of the forest root domain box, type treyresearch.net, and then click Next.

  7. In the Forest functional level box, click Windows Server 2003, and then click Next.

  8. In the Domain functional level box, click Windows Server 2003, and then click Next.

  9. Ensure that the DNS server check box is selected, and then click Next.

  10. Click Yes, confirming that you want to create a delegation for this DNS server.

  11. On the Location for Database, Log Files, and SYSVOL page, click Next.

  12. In the Password and Confirm password boxes, type a strong password, and then click Next.

  13. On the Summary page, click Next to start the installation.

  14. When the installation is complete, click Finish, and then click Restart Now.

noteNote
You must restart the computer after you complete this procedure.

DNS forwarders are used in this guide to forward DNS requests that cannot be resolved from the treyresearch.net domain to the cpandl.com domain, and vice versa.
