  10. 10. 1-10 6425A: Configuring Windows Server® 2008 Active Directory® Domain Services Upgrading to Windows Server 2008 AD DS Key Points To install a new Windows Server 2008 domain controller in an existing Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003 domain, complete the following steps: • If the domain controller is the first Windows Server 2008 domain controller in the forest, you must prepare the forest for Windows Server 2008 by extending the schema on the schema operations master. To extend the schema, run adprep /forestprep. The adprep tool is located on the Windows Server 2008 installation media. • If the domain controller is the first Windows Server 2008 domain controller in a Windows 2000 Server domain, you must first prepare the domain by running adprep /domainprep /gpprep on the infrastructure master. The gpprep switch adds inheritable access control entry (ACEs) to the Group Policy Objects (GPO) that are located in the SYSVOL shared folder and synchronizes the SYSVOL shared folder among the controllers in the domain. BETA COURSEWARE. EXPIRES 4/11/2008
  11. 11. Implementing Active Directory® Domain Services 1-11 • If the domain controller is the first Windows Server 2008 domain controller in a Windows Server 2003 domain, you must prepare the domain by running adprep /domainprep on the infrastructure master. • After you install a writeable domain controller, you can install an RODC in the Windows Server 2003 forest. Before doing this, you must prepare the forest by running adprep /rodcprep. You can run adprep /rodcprep on any computer in the forest. If the RODC will be a global catalog server, then you must run adprep /domainprep in all domains in the forest, regardless of whether the domain runs a Windows Server 2008 domain controller. By running adprep /domainprep in all domains, the RODC can replicate global catalog data from all domains in the forest and then advertise as a global catalog server.

  14. 14. 1-14 6425A: Configuring Windows Server® 2008 Active Directory® Domain Services Lesson 2: Deploying Read-Only Domain Controllers One of the important new features in Windows Server 2008 is the option to use read-only domain controllers (RODCs). RODCs provide all of the functionality that clients require while providing additional security for domain controllers deployed in branch offices. When configuring RODCs, you can specify which user account passwords will be cached on the server and configure delegated administrative permissions for the domain controller. This lesson describes how to install and configure RODCs. BETA COURSEWARE. EXPIRES 4/11/2008
  15. 15. Implementing Active Directory® Domain Services 1-15 What Is a Read-Only Domain Controller? Key Points An RODC is a new type of domain controller that Windows Server 2008 supports. An RODC hosts read-only partitions of the AD DS database. This means that no changes can ever be made to the database copy that the RODC stores, and all AD DS replication uses a one-way connection from a domain controller that has a writeable database copy to the RODC.

  20. 20. 1-20 6425A: Configuring Windows Server® 2008 Active Directory® Domain Services What Are Password Replication Policies? Key Points When deploy an RODC, you can configure a Password Replication Policy for the RODC. The Password Replication Policy acts as an access control list (ACL) that determines if an RODC is permitted to cache a password. The Password Replication Policy lists the accounts that you are allowing explicitly to be cached and those that you are not. The passwords for any accounts are not actually cached on the RODC until after the first time the user or computer account is authenticated through the RODC. Additional Reading • AD DS Online Help: Specify Password Replication Policy BETA COURSEWARE. EXPIRES 4/11/2008
  21. 21. Implementing Active Directory® Domain Services 1-21 Demonstration: Configuring Administrator Role Separation and Password Replication Policies Questions: What is an alternative way to configure administrator role separation and password replication policies? Your organization has deployed two RODCs. How would you configure the password replication policy if you wanted the credentials for all user accounts and computer accounts except for administrators and executives to be cached on both RODCs? Additional Reading • AD DS Help: Specify Password Replication Policy BETA COURSEWARE. EXPIRES 4/11/2008
  22. 22. 1-22 6425A: Configuring Windows Server® 2008 Active Directory® Domain Services Lesson 3: Configuring AD DS Domain Controller Roles All domain controllers in a domain are essentially equal, meaning they all contain the same data and provide the same services. However, you also can assign special roles to domain controllers to provide additional services or address scenarios in which only one domain controller should provide services at any given time. This lesson describes how to configure and manage global catalog servers and operations masters. BETA COURSEWARE. EXPIRES 4/11/2008
  23. 23. Implementing Active Directory® Domain Services 1-23 What Are Global Catalog Servers? Key Points The global catalog is a partial, read-only replica of all domain directory partitions in a forest. The global catalog is a partial replica because it includes only a limited set of attributes for each of the forest’s objects. By including only the attributes that are used the most for searching, the database of a single global catalog server can represent every object in every domain in the forest. The global catalog server hosts the global catalog and its domain information. Active Directory configures the first domain controller automatically in the forest as a global catalog server. You can add global catalog functionality to other domain controllers or change the default location of the global catalog to another domain controller. Additional Reading • Microsoft Technet article: Domain Controller Roles BETA COURSEWARE. EXPIRES 4/11/2008
  24. 24. 1-24 6425A: Configuring Windows Server® 2008 Active Directory® Domain Services Modifying the Global Catalog Key Points Sometimes you may want to customize the global catalog server to include additional attributes. By default, for every object in the forest, the global catalog server contains an object’s most common attributes. Applications and users can query these attributes. For example, you can find a user by first name, last name, e- mail address, or other common properties Additional Reading • Microsoft Technet article: Domain Controller Roles (Global Catalog Partial Attribute Set section) BETA COURSEWARE. EXPIRES 4/11/2008
  25. 25. Implementing Active Directory® Domain Services 1-25 Demonstration: Configuring Global Catalog Servers Questions: What types of errors or user experiences would lead you to investigate whether you needed to configure another server as a global catalog server? What are reasons why you would choose to replicate an attribute to the global catalog? Additional Reading • Microsoft Technet article: To add an attribute to the global catalog BETA COURSEWARE. EXPIRES 4/11/2008
  26. 26. 1-26 6425A: Configuring Windows Server® 2008 Active Directory® Domain Services What Are Operations Master Roles? Key Points Active Directory is designed as a multimaster replication system. However, for certain directory operations, only a single authoritative server is required. The domain controllers that perform specific roles are known as operations masters. The domain controllers that hold operations master roles are designated to perform specific tasks to ensure consistency and to eliminate the potential for conflicting entries in the Active Directory database. Additional Reading • Microsoft Technet article: To add an attribute to the global catalog BETA COURSEWARE. EXPIRES 4/11/2008
  27. 27. Implementing Active Directory® Domain Services 1-27 Demonstration: Managing Operation Master Roles Questions: Under what circumstances might you need to seize an operations master role immediately rather than wait a few hours for a domain controller currently holding the role to be repaired? You are deploying the first domain controller in a new domain that will be a new domain tree in the WoodgroveBank.com forest. What operations master roles will this server hold by default?

  37. 37. Implementing Active Directory® Domain Services 1-37 Module Review and Takeaways Review Questions 1. You are deploying a domain controller in a branch office. The branch office does not have a highly secure server room so you are concerned about the security of the server. What two Windows Server 2008 features can you take advantage of to enhance the security of the domain controller deployment? 2. You must create a new domain by installing a domain controller in your Active Directory infrastructure. You are reviewing the inventory list of available servers for this purpose. Which of the following computers could be used as a domain controller? A. Windows Server 2008 Web Edition, NTFS files system, 1 gigabyte (GB) free hard disk space, TCP/IP. B. Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition, NTFS files system, 500 megabyte (MB) free hard disk space, TCP/IP. BETA COURSEWARE. EXPIRES 4/11/2008
  38. 38. 1-38 6425A: Configuring Windows Server® 2008 Active Directory® Domain Services C. Windows Server 2008 Server Core Enterprise Edition, NTFS files system, 1GB free hard disk space, TCP/IP. D. Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition, NTFS files system, 500 MB free hard disk space, TCP/IP. 3. You are deploying an RODC in branch office. You need to ensure that all users in the branch office can authenticate even if the WAN connection from the branch office is not available. Only the users who normally log on in the branch office should be able to do this? How would you configure the password replication policy? 4. You need to install a domain controller by using the install from media option. What steps do you need to take to complete this process? 5. Will you be deploying RODCs in your AD DS environment? Describe the deployment scenario. 6. You are deploying a domain controller in a branch office. The office has a WAN connection to the main office that has very little available bandwidth and is not very reliable. Should you configure the branch office domain controller as a global catalog server? Considerations Keep the following considerations in mind when you are implementing RODCs and managing domain controller roles: • You can install the AD DS Server role on all Windows Server 2008 editions except Windows Server 2008 Web Server Edition. • Consider installing a RODC on a Windows Server 2008 Server Core computer to provide additional security for your domain environment. • To install AD DS on a Server Core computer, you must use an unattended installation. • Plan the password replication policies carefully in your organization. If you enable credential caching for most of the accounts in your domain, you will increase the impact to your organization if the RODC is compromised. If you do not enable any credential caching, you increase the impact to the branch office location if the WAN link to the main office is not available. BETA COURSEWARE. EXPIRES 4/11/2008
  39. 39. Implementing Active Directory® Domain Services 1-39 • In most cases, deploying a global catalog server in a site will improve the logon experience for users. However, deploying a global catalog in a remote office also increases the network utilized for replication. • Operation master roles provide important services on a network but the services are not usually time critical. Most of the time, if a domain controller holding an operation master role fails, you do not immediately need to seize the role to another domain controller if the failed server can be repaired within a few hours.
