I'm trying to teach myself Active Directory using the self-paced training kit 70-640 unfortunately my networking and System Administration skills are quite poor and I'm having trouble with Chapter 1 / Lesson 2 / Exercise 2 !
I created 1 virtual machine in Virtual Box "SERVER01", this is the Windows Server 2008R2 domain controller for the contoso.com domain
I created a 2nd virtual machine,"SERVER02", which is Windows Server 2008R2 core. However when I try to join the domain using
netdom join %computername% /domain:contoso.com
it says "the specified domain does not exist or cannot be contacted".
Both virtual machines have a single network adapter attached to a internal network.
For what it's worth I can ping the Server01 from Server02.
SERVER01 IP: 10.0.0.11 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 10.0.0.1 DNS Servers: ::1 DNS Servers: 127.0.0.1 SERVER02 IP: 10.0.0.12 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 10.0.0.1 DNS Servers: fec0:0:0:ffff::1%1 (confused about this!?) DNS Servers: fec0:0:0:ffff::2%1 DNS Servers: fec0:0:0:ffff::3%1
Also in the network settings of virtual box, what is the significance of promiscuous mode?
Thanks for any help or advice.
