Chapter 1: Getting started with activedirectoryRemarksThis section provides an overview of what active-directory is, and why a developer might want touse it.It should also mention any large subjects within active-directory, and link out to the related topics.Since the Documentation for active-directory is new, you may need to create initial versions ofthose related topics.ExamplesInstallation or SetupDetailed instructions on getting active-directory set up or installed.Read Getting started with active-directory online:

Chapter 2: Pre-planning before you createyour forest or domain.RemarksOne thing you might consider with any domains in your forest is how many physical vs virtualmachines you want to have. Personally I believe that there should be one physical machine perdomain. One of the reasons I believe this is because of how the clocks are handled on, specificallyin my case, Hyper-V machines. I cannot speak to VMWare. On a Hyper-V host it installs a clocksync service on the guest operating systems. In a domain all member machines are synced up tothe time service from the DCs. Each domain syncs up to the forest. But on a Hyper-V guest theclock is synced up to the physical machine's clock. And if the host is a member machine the clockis then synced up to the domain. This creates a feedback loop that allows for the clock to drift Ihave found. After a couple months the time drifts to the point that there is a noticeable differencein time and in Active Directory that is a major issue. To solve this I set my Hyper-V hosts to synctime at a very low interval from a physical DC that holds the Flexible Single Master Operation(FSMO) role of Primary Domain Controller (PDC) in the forest root domain.ExamplesConsiderationsYou need to decide what your forest structure is going to look like before you install ActiveDirectory for the first time.Are you to have just one domain in your forest, or are you going to have multiple domains in yourforest?Active Directory can support multiple sites. Generally sites are split up across slow links (slownetwork connections) or large distances between geographic areas, but they do not have to be.Sites are setup via IP Address subnets. You specify these IP Addresses belong to site A and theothers belong to site B. Intersite replication (between site A and site B) usually occurs at a longerfrequency than intrasite replication. For example replication between site A and site B could be setat the default 180 minutes (3 hours) and replication between Domain Controllers within the samesite is by default set to 15 seconds.You also need to consider the number of "machines" you will need to have in order to build outyour Active Directory forest. Best practice would be have a minimum of two Domain Controllers(DC) per each domain in your forest for redundancy. DNS is a requirement for Active Directory.Active Directory clients such as users computers) use DNS to find each other and locate servicesadvertised in Active Directory by the Active Directory domain controllers. You must decide whetherDNS will be integrated with Active Directory or not. It is easier to get Active Directory up andrunning off the ground quickly if you decide to integrate DNS to AD. It is also worth noting that youshould backup your Active Directory because having bad data replicate to another DC provides

redundancy of bad data, and not a path to roll back to.Read Pre-planning before you create your forest or domain. online: ain-

Introducing Active Directory Countless books, articles, and presentations have been written on the subject of Active Directory, and it is not the intention of this book to repeat them. However, it is important to review a few basic terms and concepts inherent in Active Directory. Figure 3-1 illustrates the concepts that make up an Active Directory.

It is not the actual backup, which you would use to restore the Active Directory or Group Policies in the case of emergency when the server or Active Directory has crashed. A snapshot is used to restore the state of Active Directory, Group Policies, or their objects individually but only if Active Directory or the Server is in working condition.
