Chapter 1. Deploy your first forest and domain

In this chapter, I cover how to create a new Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) forest where one has never existed before. This is, in some ways, the easiest task you’re likely to face, but it’s also one where getting it right is really important. The decisions you make here will affect the entire organization for the life of this deployment.
