Hello,

By using the os (Windows Server, UNIX, etc) it will ask during setup if you want to make this a domain controller. Remember, networks can only 1 primary domain controller (PDC) but many backup domain controllers (BDC) choose correctly as well....BDC can be promoted to PDC. PDC have to have a reinstall.

Good Luck

Reset Password Windows Server 2008, 2008R2


As the popular use of Windows Server 2008, large amount of trivial things come up with us each minute, the occasion that we reset password Windows Server 2008 becomes also common. Therefore, Windows Server 2008 password reset is the necessary technique for us now!


Windows Server 2008 is one of Microsoft Windows Server serials of operating systems. Besides Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 is the latest and more secured versions from Microsoft. Windows Server 2008 has newly added many new functional features included that system administrators of small and large companies will enjoy.


Most of us use Windows 2008 Server as a workstation. That means a group of computers and devices on a network that are controlled as a unit with common rules and procedures. And the host manages these computers through its admin account and password.


If you forgot windows server 2008 password of local admin, I think it is easy for you to recover the password. But what if you forgot windows domain password? Things will get trickier and all of the computers in the domain paralyze. These passwords also called AD password. Before solving your password problem, you need to know what Active Directory Domain Controller is.


What is Active Directory Domain Controller?
A domain controller is a server that is running a version of the Windows Server operating system and has Active Directory Domain Services installed.


When you install Windows Server on a computer, you can choose to configure a specific server role for that computer. When you want to create a new forest, a new domain, or an additional domain controller in an existing domain, you configure the server with the role of domain controller by installing Active Directory Domain Controller(AD DC).


There are differences between Domain and local. A Windows Server domain is a logical group of computers running versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system that share a central directory database. A user may be granted access to a number of computer resources with the use of a single username and password combination.


A Domain Controller allows password authentication throughout a network. What this means is that your password is checked on the central server no matter which machine you log in from. A Domain Controller can also control access to files and directories which can be setup so users have access to all their files no matter which machine they log in from. This also makes adding and removing users among other things much easier as all that is required is a change on the Domain Controller itself rather than every machine on a network.


If you need reset domain administrator password (also called AD password), it will be a tricky thing. However, Ainorsoft Windows Password Recovery can allow you to reset password Windows Server 2008 domain.


Steps for Windows Server 2008 password reset domain:
Step1. Google Windows Password Recovery Corporation, download and install in any available computer.
Step2. Create a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive. (A blank CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive is needed)
Step3. BIOS set. Boot computer from the created CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive and set BIOS setup.
Step4. Reset Windows server 2008 or 2008R2 password to Re123456.

I dont know what is domain


A Microsoft Windows Active Directory Domain is a directory service for a computer network. Think of it like a phonebook for all your companies computers, users, and printers to name a few. Active Directory provides a central authentication point for all users/computers in the building and controls network policies. This makes network management for multiple computers and users MUCH easier.

For more information, see Microsoft's Official Active Directory site.

How to Reset AD Password for Windows Server 2000, 2003 and 2008?


Have you ever forgotten Active Directory (AD) password? Do you know how to reset AD password? Is there any Windows password reset software to do AD password reset? If not, what to do to reset AD password? Before answering these questions and do AD password reset, you need to what is active directory, Windows domain and domain controller.
What is Active Directory?Active Directory is used by system administrators to store information about users, assign security policies, and deploy software. It was released first with Windows 2000 Server edition and refined further in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 and was renamed Active Directory Domain Services. AD components include such domains, domain controllers, trust relationships, forests, organizational units, etc. What is a domain controller?
According to Wiki, a domain controller is a server that responds to security authentication requests (logging in, checking permissions, etc.) within the Windows Server domain. The domain controllers in your network are the centerpiece of your Active Directory service. It stores user account information, authenticates users and enforces security policy for a Windows domain. When you install Windows Server on a computer, you can choose to configure a specific server role for that computer. When you want to create a new domain, or an additional domain controller in an existing domain, you configure the server with the role of domain controller by installing AD DS.
What is a Domain?A domain is a concept introduced in Windows NT whereby a user may be granted access to a number of computer resources with the use of a single username and password combination.
The domain concept not only allows a user to have access to resources that may be on different servers, but it also allows one domain to be given access to another domain in a trust relationship. In this arrangement, the user need only log in to the first domain to also have access to the second domain's resources as well.
So it is hard to say if there any windows password recovery software can reset AD password. Windows password recovery software like Windows Password Unlocker Enterprise can allow you to reset domain administrator password on Active directory for Windows server 2000/2003/2008.
Steps to reset domain administrator password
  • Step 1: Download and install Windows Password Unlocker Enterprise in any available computer.
  • Step 2: Run the software and insert a USB flash drive to computer.
  • Step 3: Select Domain Administrator and target USB drive, and then click the Burn button to start burning an ISO image file to the USB flash drive.
  • Step 4: Click ok when burning process is completed.
  • Step 5: Insert the burned USB flash drive to your locked computer and set the computer to boot from USB.
  • Step 6: Choose the way to reset AD password.
  • 2 options for you to reset domain password
  • 0b60bd0.jpg
  • Option 1: Reset the default domain administrator password to Pa123456
  • Option 2: Reset AD password by creating a specified domain administrator account.
  • Step 7: Click YES to continue and click Ok when the domain password has been successfully reset.
Now you can log on your domain with the user name of administrator and password of 'Pa123456' if you select option 1. If you select option 2, you can log on domain with the username of 'passkiller' and password of 'Pa123456'.

Domain controller error


First reboot once your PC and if that does not work then:
when you login with your local admin account are you able to ping the DC? Also, check the IP settings to make sure they are correct. Are you using DHCP or are you static? If you are able to ping the DC adn IP settings are correct, is the computer name in Active directory? Also if the computer name is in active directory, is it disabled? If you check all these things and you are still having issues, drop the computer from the domain, rename it and create the new name in Active Directory and then add the computer back to the Domain. Somewhere along the line of following these steps, you should get the computer back inline. If other computers are able to connect to the domain then it is definitly an issue with this computer name or a setting on this computer.

DNS


DNS is the primary name resolution service for Windows Server 2003. Active Directory depends on DNS for domain controller location, and DNS influences Active Directory domain naming. Thus, to fully understand Active Directory, it helps to understand how DNS acts as an integral component in the design of Active Directory.

DNS provides Active Directory with both a name resolution service for domain controller location and a hierarchical design that Active Directory leverages to provide a naming convention that can reflect organizational structure.
Typically, a DNS domain namespace deployed to accommodate the Active Directory mirrors the Active Directory domain namespace. In cases where there is an existing DNS namespace prior to Active Directory deployment, the DNS namespace is typically partitioned for Active Directory, and a DNS subdomain and delegation for the Active Directory forest root is created. Additional DNS domain names are then added for each Active Directory child domain.
DNS data is used to support the location of Active Directory domain controllers also. During or after the creation of the DNS zones used to support Active Directory domains, the zones are populated with DNS resource records that enable network hosts and services to locate Active Directory domain controllers.

What is the acitiv dirctry


Dear , friend


Active Directory (AD) is a technology created by Microsoft that provides a variety of network services,

Active directory is a directory service used to store information about the network resources across a domain and also centralize the network.


DNS stands for Domain Name Server. These are the servers that match up a fully qualified domain with the proper IP address. This is necessary because computers only understand the IP address for your domain (eg- 123.45.678.90).

Active directory


An application directory partition is represented by a domainDNS object with an instanceType attribute value of DS_INSTANCETYPE_IS_NC_HEAD combined with DS_INSTANCETYPE_NC_IS_WRITEABLE. This domainDNS object represents the application directory partition root (NC head), and is named similar to a regular domain partition, for example, "DC=dynamicdata,DC=fabrikam,DC=com", which corresponds to a DNS name of "dynamicdata.fabrikam.com". An application directory partition can, therefore, be instantiated anywhere a domain partition can be instantiated. There is no NetBIOS name associated with an application directory partition.

It is possible to nest application directory partitions, that is, an application directory partition can have child application directory partitions. Searches with subtree scope rooted at an application directory partition head will generate continuation references to the child application directory partitions.

An application directory partition replica can only be created on a domain controller that is running on Windows Server 2003 and later and only while the Domain-Naming FSMO role is held by a Windows Server 2003 and later domain controller. In a mixed forest that has both Windows Server 2003 domain controllers and down-level domain controllers (Windows 2000 domain controllers or Windows NT 4.0 primary domain controllers), an attempt to create an application directory partition replica on a down-level domain controller will fail.

An application directory partition also has a corresponding crossRef object in the Partitions container of the configuration partition. The crossRef can be pre-created manually before creating the domainDNS object. The pre-created crossRef object must have the attribute values shown in the following table or the partition creation will fail. If the crossRef object does not exist, the Active Directory server will create one when the application directory partition is created.
