I bought a VPS and today is the first day. I admit that Im new on server administration and yay, I broke it on my first day.
The objetive of this question is to learn from my errors, dont wan't to break it twice.
I have a domain (domain.com) and I wanted to access my websites using the domain. the company of the VPS doesn't provide me any DNS so I was told that I needed an Active Directory Domain Service.
Ok, I picked up a guide, I configured a new forest, used my domain.com domain, said that is W2008R2 and clicked next until the wizard ended. Next, it configured a DNS service and rebooted the machine. Since that, I lost the remote access to my machine. It says that is powered off, without network or without remote access. The machine is on, I can see my IIS hello world.
So, what happened and how can I prevent that?
If is not much to ask: the AD-DS is needed just to redirect my domain to my IIS? Or Im wrong?
