How to connect Nodes to Domain Controller.

You may have question how to Connect Node1 to DC ?

It is an easy task to perform, don't know why no one else created a proper blog about it.

First, you have to install 3 roles to the DC to make it Domain Controller and then it will be ready to add other nodes.

So the three roles are AD DC, DHCP, and DNS.

Add this three roles, then Promote your server as Domain controller create a Forest, give it a name and create NETBIOS.

Once it is done, go to Network adaptors settings and assign it a IP, you can assign class A, B or C, whichever you wish.

For example take class an IP address 10.1.10.1 and keep the default gateway and DNS server also the same.

Once you will assign the IP address now its time to set DHCP so that other computer will get the IPI addresses and will be able to connect to the domain.

So go to DHCP and right click on IPV4 and select New Scope option and create a scope and take range between 10.1.10.100 to 10.1.10.200.

Now we are done with the setting on DC.

Now need to connect Node one to the DC, so go back to the Node1 and in server manager select local server, in there click on manage IPV4 and now assign it any IP address which is within the scope and make the default gateway the IP address of the DC server.

Now go back to Server Manager click on Local Server and here click on "Workgroup" and change it to the domain name you had earlier assigned.

Now you will be able to connect the DC with the different nodes.

Found below video very useful to perform the above task and you can also proceed with performing clustering.

How to configure NAT to share internet through DC to other nodes. Windows Server 2016

Sharing the internet through Domain Control to all other Workstation connected to it without much effort.

To configure sharing internet through one server to all the other machines in the network you need to configure NAT in Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and 2016.

So to do so you need to have two Lan Adapters installed on the Internet server.

Then install the Remote Access Server role. After installing it will ask for the prompt, just cancel that.

Go to the Routing and remote access here below server status you will be able to see the computer name of the local server which has the internet.

Now right click on it and select "Enable Routing and Remote Access" and then select option to make to do the customer configuration and create a LAN connection.

After it goes to the tools and select Windows Firewall and creates a new inbound rule to allow ping ICPSv4 to all the programs and computer.

Then come back to the Routing and Remote Access and here under the here right click on General under IPV4 and select create new routing interface select NAT.

After selecting NAT now its time to assign the interface, hence again right click on General and select the new interface and now select the external router which will be able to communicate with another machine in created routing mechanism.

Now you will be able to use the internet on all the computer associated within the domain.

And if you are using Hyper-V you will save a lot of time of adding the virtual switch. I found this video very helpful in doing the same if you are finding above instruction difficult you may watch below video: Video Courtesy: Professor Hornung
