Create two more virtual machine, name it ServerDC2 and ServerDM2 and install Win Server
2016 in it. For this assignment we will only require running 2 VMs at a time, ServerDC2 (which
will be the Domain Controller) and ServerDM2. ServerSA1, ServerDC1 and ServerDM1
should be Powered Off.
Your first task is to bring both ServerDC2 and ServerDM2 under the same network, known as
ABCnet. Configure the VirtualBox and IP Configuration settings for the two VMs to complete
the task. Once done, PING from both the ends to check connectivity. Attach the most relevant
screenshots and a short description after each of the screenshots showing the complete process
that you have used.
As the network Admin of ABC Corporation, you have decided it is best to set up an Active
Directory based authentication and management services for the company network. So to start
off, create the Active Directory Forest on ServerDC2, note that DNS should also be installed as
part of the AD installation, and it is necessary to promote the server as the Domain Controller.
Name the Domain domainabc.com. Note that as part of the process, you also have to set up a
domain-wide admin account (name it abcadmin). Once installation is completed, verify that the
domain has been properly setup. Rename the newly created Domain Controller as PrimaryDC.
Attach screenshots for each of the steps and a short description after each of the screenshots
showing the complete process that you have used. Provide the screenshots for domain
verification and renaming as well.
Now as the DC has been setup, it’s time to adding machines to the domain. Thus, rename
ServerDM2 to Acc1 and add it to abcdomain. ABC Corporation at this moment will be divided
into 2 Organizational Units (OUs), Accounting and Marketing. Create these OUs and add at least
2 users in each of these OUs. Once done, create a group called NoBackgroundChange. Add one
member from each of the OUs to this group and set up a GPO Policy in such a way so that
members of the group will not be able to change their Desktop Backgrounds once they login. In
addition, bring Acc1 under the Accounting OU.
Attach the most relevant screenshots and a short description after each of the screenshots.
