Chapter 4.3. Configuring a Domain Controller > Installing Active Directory

Installing Active Directory

Before installing the Active Directory on your Windows 2000 server, you must have a plan. Unlike using Windows NT 4.0, you need a lot more information than just knowing if the server you are installing will be a Primary Domain Controller or a Backup Domain Controller. With Windows 2000, you must know exactly how this Domain Controller fits into your enterprise. Principally, you need to know the following about this Domain Controller:

  • Will it be in a new Domain or a replica of an existing Domain?

  • Will it be in a new tree or in an existing tree within your enterprise?

  • Will it be in a new forest or an existing forest?
