Deploying the Active Directory Domain Services (ADDS) role

The Directory Service is one of the core services that must be implemented when we consider building an integrated, secure, and centralized infrastructure. It is required for any organization looking for an integrated, central administration process for network resources, managing identities, and access control. There are three deployment scenarios related to the Active Directory deployment:

  • Creating a new Active Directory forest
  • Creating a new Active Directory Domain in an existing forest
  • Creating a new Active Directory Domain Controller in an existing domain

These deployment options are available as part of Active Directory Domain Services Configuration Wizard.
