Recent Dunedin IT Business Service Project
Upgrade Server to Windows 2003 Server Active Directory
How we did it: The first step was to install DNS and setup setup forwarders for outside domain name lookups. DHCP was also setup for internal LAN clients. The customer wanted to setup Windows Server Group Policies, so we setup 4 different organizational units. When setting up Windows 2003 Active Directory services and above you must ensure that each client computer is using the internal DNS server. This is necessary for basic computer name resolution inside the private network. We configured DHCP because it was the best solution to add the scope range that included the router settings. One important thing to keep in mind is if you are running any clients that are not Windows 2000 or above you should not move your domain to "Native Mode" by default Windows 2000 Active Directory, Windows 2003 Active Directory, Windows 2008 Active Directory are come configured in mixed mode. It may also be necessary to keep WINS (Windows Internet Naming Server) installed until all of your clients are Windows 2000 Professional and above.
This client has Windows 2000 Professional clients, Windows XP clients and Windows Vista Business edition clients but none were prior than Windows 2000 so running wins was not needed. WINS is an inefficient service to have on your network and best to avoid installing unless you absolutely have to. Group policies were setup for each department for this customer. Different rights on the computer settings were changed depending on department. For example, we setup a software package to be deployed to the accounting computers and locked the accounting department out of internet explorer settings. All of these settings can be controlled from the group policy of each organizational unit. It’s best to have different organizational units in Active Directory and then move the group of computers under each. For this client we setup an organizational unit for accounting, sales, managers and customer service. This is also useful for having a friendly dashboard to control the different computers in different departments. In another article we talk about a recent setup of Microsoft system essentials. Be sure to check that out as it adds additional value to Active Directory services.
