1. 00:00:00:00 / 00:00:03:12 - hello in this video let's have a look at
2. 00:00:03:12 / 00:00:09:84 - how to join an Active Directory server
3. 00:00:09:84 / 00:00:16:50 - make a to the domain that already has an
4. 00:00:16:50 / 00:00:17:85 - active directory so it's basically
5. 00:00:17:85 / 00:00:20:34 - adding an extra Active Directory server
6. 00:00:20:34 / 00:00:23:67 - into that domain and the labeling
7. 00:00:23:67 / 00:00:28:26 - replication etc ok so we've already
8. 00:00:28:26 / 00:00:31:28 - installed Active Directory our dns
9. 00:00:31:28 / 00:00:34:62 - server ok but we haven't done the
10. 00:00:34:62 / 00:00:37:35 - configuration ok if you want to know how
11. 00:00:37:35 / 00:00:39:00 - to get to this there's a previous video
12. 00:00:39:00 / 00:00:42:00 - that we have and that's definitely worth
13. 00:00:42:00 / 00:00:45:42 - having a look at ok so we basically
14. 00:00:45:42 / 00:00:49:32 - click on configuration that brings us up
15. 00:00:49:32 / 00:00:53:00 - to promote the server to a domain and
16. 00:00:53:00 / 00:00:57:89 - here we go alright that'll just load up
17. 00:00:57:89 / 00:01:01:19 - in a minute ok so we are basically
18. 00:01:01:19 / 00:01:03:71 - adding a domain controller to an
19. 00:01:03:71 / 00:01:08:18 - existing domain the existing domain is
20. 00:01:10:54 / 00:01:20:07 - windows then chop dot local and we've
21. 00:01:20:07 / 00:01:24:39 - set up our dns to basically ensure that
22. 00:01:24:39 / 00:01:28:43 - it's reaching our domain controller
23. 00:01:28:43 / 00:01:32:79 - that's so reactive and thankfully it's
24. 00:01:32:79 / 00:01:38:54 - found it ok so we basically do windows
25. 00:01:38:54 / 00:01:47:43 - ninja hack slash and then the
26. 00:01:47:43 / 00:01:52:85 - administrator ok give it a password that
27. 00:01:53:18 / 00:01:56:50 - should be there
28. 00:01:59:76 / 00:02:04:75 - and this is founded thanks to our dns
29. 00:02:04:75 / 00:02:08:53 - server being set up okay basically if
30. 00:02:08:53 / 00:02:09:94 - you want to know it's basically over
31. 00:02:09:94 / 00:02:21:43 - here open networking sharing click on
32. 00:02:21:43 / 00:02:27:58 - the network properties okay this IP the
33. 00:02:27:58 / 00:02:30:04 - four properties make sure that you've
34. 00:02:30:04 / 00:02:31:90 - set the dns over here it's simple as
35. 00:02:31:90 / 00:02:33:94 - that we've given a static IP address
36. 00:02:33:94 / 00:02:35:61 - because this will be a domain controller
37. 00:02:35:61 / 00:02:40:42 - okay so that's fine alright cancel
38. 00:02:40:42 / 00:02:45:00 - cancel cancel cancel select that click
39. 00:02:45:00 / 00:02:50:91 - ok click Next
40. 00:02:57:31 / 00:03:01:48 - and then basically give a directory
41. 00:03:01:48 / 00:03:04:36 - services restore mode password okay can
42. 00:03:04:36 / 00:03:13:78 - be anything we're keeping it simple as I
43. 00:03:13:78 / 00:03:26:68 - say that's normal that's fine okay
44. 00:03:26:68 / 00:03:30:48 - replicate from any domain controller or
45. 00:03:30:48 / 00:03:34:06 - specify the domain controller where the
46. 00:03:34:06 / 00:03:35:92 - replication will come from you could
47. 00:03:35:92 / 00:03:38:83 - have basically if you were halfway
48. 00:03:38:83 / 00:03:41:95 - across the world and your domain
49. 00:03:41:95 / 00:03:44:20 - controller was on the other side the
50. 00:03:44:20 / 00:03:47:73 - world rather than expensive traffic
51. 00:03:47:73 / 00:03:49:93 - happening you could have had a shall we
52. 00:03:49:93 / 00:03:53:95 - say file stored and then basically use
53. 00:03:53:95 / 00:03:57:61 - that to install but in this case we're
54. 00:03:57:61 / 00:04:02:79 - just gonna replicate it happily from our
55. 00:04:02:79 / 00:04:15:25 - lands domain controller okay it says all
56. 00:04:15:25 / 00:04:21:01 - checks past click install this will take
57. 00:04:21:01 / 00:04:23:52 - a few minutes and then it will restart
58. 00:04:23:52 / 00:04:28:21 - okay now it has restarted and basically
59. 00:04:28:21 / 00:04:31:41 - were in server manager we've clicked on
60. 00:04:31:41 / 00:04:35:13 - Active Directory domain services right
61. 00:04:35:13 / 00:04:41:74 - click go to users and computers and you
62. 00:04:41:74 / 00:04:43:99 - will notice that literally everything
63. 00:04:43:99 / 00:04:47:16 - that was on the other domain controller
64. 00:04:47:16 / 00:04:50:50 - has been replicated in this instance it
65. 00:04:50:50 / 00:04:53:74 - was only a demo so basically there
66. 00:04:53:74 / 00:04:56:02 - wasn't that much okay so it was a very
67. 00:04:56:02 / 00:04:58:53 - quick can I transfer over however if you
68. 00:04:58:53 / 00:05:00:51 - had like a thousand different
69. 00:05:00:51 / 00:05:04:63 - organizational units etc etc it would
70. 00:05:04:63 / 00:05:06:15 - have taken a little bit longer time but
71. 00:05:06:15 / 00:05:10:33 - still not too much okay so hopefully
72. 00:05:10:33 / 00:05:11:11 - this has helped
