In this video, I demonstrate how to:
1. Utilize PowerShell to rename the computer and configure network settings
2. Utilize PowerShell to join a Windows Server 2012 R2 Server Core system to a domain
3. Utilize PowerShell to install the appropriate components to support Active Directory Domain Services and DNS, and become a domain controller in an existing Active Directory domain
This was performed on a virtual machine and the host was a laptop running Windows 7 x64 with a Core i7m, 16GB RAM, and two (2) solid state drives (SSD), one for the main system and one dedicated to virtual machines. So, the install goes fast, but it was not intended to be any sort of speed test.
