Server 12 Core Configuration, Part 1 Configuring Basic

PART 1 Preparing Server 2012 CORE for Active directory installation…

image

After installing S2012 Core when you change your password, first thing you will see is CMD.EXE

image

Now we would like to jump into PowerShell and start configuring the S2012 Core to be additional domain controller into existing Active Directory Forest/Domain ( mix AD 2008R2 & AD 2012 )

In CMD window type "start Power Shell" and hit enter

Start Power Shell

image

Now we have PS window open if you like to open another PS window simply type same command

Sometimes it is hand to have two separate windows.

Start PowerShell

image

Now tape host name to see the current computer generic name , Now let’s start renaming our Server in my case I choose the name as "S2012Core"

Rename-Computer -NewName “S2012CORE” -Restart

image

*Tips, in PS, a lot of typing is involved, use the tab completion feature saves “tons” of time and makes command line “fun” to learn.

After reboot log back in and type host name

Now it is time to look at the NIC Card and configure it

Get-NetAdapter

Get-NetAdapter –InterfaceIndex 12 | rename-NetAdapter –NewName “Production”

image

See the new name

image

 

New-NetIPAddress –IPAddess 10.10.10.31 –DefaultGateway 10.10.10.1 –PrefixLength 24 –InterFaceIndex 12

*** Change the IP address to fit to your needs

image

Set-DNSClientServerAddress –interfaceIndex 12 –ServerAddress 10.10.10.30

image

Lets add  the server into Domain

Add-Computer –DomainName  r1.internal

***r1.internal is the Domain name I have, in the LAB , replace this to fit into your environment

Reboot the Server

ShutDown –r –t 5

Hi, I can put in a static IP with the command but the 169.x.x.x IP is still there together with the fix IP. Is this a bug?
