2.3 First Windows Server 2012 domain controller in an existing forest

You can also use the AD DS Configuration Wizard to deploy Windows Server 2012 domain controllers in a forest or domain whose existing domain controllers are running Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, or Windows Server 2003. As explained earlier in this lesson, when you use the wizard to deploy the first Windows Server 2012 domain controller in a domain of a forest whose domain controllers are running earlier Windows Server versions, the Adprep tool automatically runs to prepare the forest and domain by extending the schema to its latest version.

The procedure that follows demonstrates this scenario by deploying a Windows Server 2012 domain controller named VAN-SRV-3 in a forest root domain named fabrikam.com whose existing domain controllers are all running Windows Server 2008 R2. After the AD DS role has been added to server VAN-SRV-3, using the AD DS Configuration Wizard to add the server as the first Windows Server 2012 domain controller in the fabrikam.com forest involves the following steps:

  1. On the Deployment Configuration page of the wizard, shown in Figure 5, select the Add A Domain Controller To An Existing Domain option, specify fabrikam.com as the forest root domain, and specify suitable credentials for performing the operation.

    Promoting the server named VAN-SRV-3 to be the first Windows Server 2012 domain controller in the existing fabrikam.com forest root domain.

  2. Proceed through the wizard as described in the previous section until you reach the Preparation Options page shown in Figure 6. This page informs you that performing this operation will prepare your forest and domain for Windows Server 2012 domain controllers by extending the schema.If you do not want to extend the schema, cancel the operation and do not deploy the new domain controller.

    The wizard informs you that the forest schema will be extended if you perform this operation.

  3. Complete the remaining steps of the wizard to deploy the domain controller and extend the schema.Note that you did not have to manually run Adprep to prepare your forest or domain for the domain controller running the new version of Windows Server.
