I'm looking to create a domain called "developer.domain.com" to join computers to. I need to make a domain controller for this domain in Windows Server 2012, this is my first time. What are the steps? So far I have researched and pulled together steps from different sources but I don't know if I'm missing any steps or if some steps don't apply to me. Please review:
Configured server IP to be static (say 192.168.1.3). ----Should I set the preferred DNS servers in this configuration to the same thing they were before? Im guessing that's my ISP's DNS servers and I should leave it the same as before?
Installed ADDS and DNS roles.
Add domain to Forward Look Up Zones: DNS Manager -> Forward LookUp Zones -> New Zone for "domain.com" (primary)
Create A record for subdomain: Refresh -> Forward Look Up Zones -> domain.com -> create New Host(A or AAAA) record for "developer.domain.com" ----- Is this supposed to point to the static IP I just made in step 1?
Create A records for nameservers: -----What IPs should the name server A records point to? Same server IP as "developer.domain.com"?
Create NS records for nameservers: Refresh -> Forward Look Up Zones - > domain.com -> Properties -> NameServers tab -> Add ns1.domain.com -> Resolve -> Add ns2.domain.com -> Resolve
- Add nameservers in Internet Registrar settings
After all this can I join computers to domain?
