STEP 5: Configure DC1

Published: February 29, 2012

Updated: August 15, 2012

Applies To: Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2



DC1 acts as a domain controller, DNS server, and DHCP server for the corp.contoso.com domain.

To configure Remote Access to use a multisite topology, it is necessary to add an additional Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) site for the second domain controller 2-DC1, and to configure routing between the subnets.

  1. To configure the default gateway on the domain controller—Configure the default gateway on DC1.

  2. Create security groups for Windows 7 DirectAccess clients on DC1—When DirectAccess is configured, it automatically creates Group Policy Objects (GPOs) and GPO settings that are applied to DirectAccess clients and servers. The DirectAccess client GPO is applied to specific Active Directory security groups.

  3. To add a new AD DS site—Create a second AD DS site.

  1. In the Server Manager console, click Local Server, and then in the Properties area, next to Wired Ethernet Connection, click the link.

  2. In the Network Connections window, right-click Wired Ethernet Connection, and then click Properties.

  3. Click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), and then click Properties.

  4. In Default gateway, type 10.0.0.254, and in Alternate DNS server, type 10.2.0.1, and then click OK.

  5. Click Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6), and then click Properties.

  6. In Default gateway, type 2001:db8:1::fe, and in Alternate DNS server, type 2001:db8:2::1, and then click OK.

  7. On the Wired Ethernet Connection Properties dialog box, click Close.

  8. Close the Network Connections window.

Create the DirectAccess security groups for Windows® 7 with the following procedure.

Windows 7 client computers must be members of separate security groups because they are able to connect to internal resources through a single entry point only. When enabling Multisite support or adding entry points, if Windows 7 support is requested, then a separate GPO will be automatically created by DirectAccess for Windows 7 clients for each entry point.
