Specs: Windows XP
Hi all

I want to setup a domain (dns) for my office where I work, presently the network is on workigroup but now we want to switch over the DNS for better conttrol over the internet & file sharing. At present our network is connected to more than 12 computers with XP as OS.

How can I setup this domain on win 2003 server. At present we are managing the network on both XP & 2003 so I don't think there should be any problems while setting it as domain.

The Configuration is mentioned above.

Any help will be highly appreciated

Regards,
prashanth

first u have to install A.D.S (dcpromo.exe) in run and configure it.
then go to your clients comp 1..my comp 2..properties 3..and change work group into domain by using user name and password of dc....

notes-----ip of dc and clients comp are of same range....

First you decide your forest/dns namespace [example: mydomain.local]
The you run dcpromo on the server to bring up your first domain controller running Active Directory.
Configuring dns will be part of the installation.

Then you need to create your dhcp scope, authorize it, disable dhcp on the router, and have it provide the AD servers ip as the dns server.

last but not least you need to add the isp's dns server ips to the forwarders [not to be confused with forward lookup zone]

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
