Installing Active Directory on Azure VM

Posted: November 18, 2016 in Azure

In one of previous posts i installed VM with Windows Server 2016.It currently have dynamic IP address,so we need to set a static one.

Installing Azure PowerShell

Azure PowerShell is a set of modules that provide cmdlets to manage Azure with Windows PowerShell. You can use the cmdlets to create, test, deploy, and manage solutions and services delivered through the Azure platform.I used Web Platform Installer.It’s tool that allows you to download and install web and cloud tools.

Now start powershell as Administrator

Add-AzureRMAccount

You’ll be prompted for Azure credentials

Now,when we are logged in to Azure,we can finally set VM’s IP and DNS address

$RGname = 'test_network_resource_group' #VM and NIC RG
$VNetRG = 'test_network_resource_group' #Virt Net RG
$VMName = 'server-2016' #VM Name
$NICName = 'server-2016784' #NIC Name
$VNetName = 'test_network' #Virt Net name
$TarSubnetName = 'default' #Target subnet name
$VM = Get-AzureRmVM -Name $VMName -ResourceGroupName $RGname
$VNET = Get-AzureRmVirtualNetwork -Name $VNetName -ResourceGroupName $VNetRG
$TarSubnet = Get-AzureRmVirtualNetworkSubnetConfig -VirtualNetwork $VNET -Name $TarSubnetName
$NIC = Get-AzureRmNetworkInterface -Name $NICName -ResourceGroupName $RGname
$NIC.IpConfigurations[0].Subnet.Id = $TarSubnet.Id
Set-AzureRmNetworkInterface -NetworkInterface $NIC

#Once the subnet has been set and that applied can apply the static IP address
$NIC = Get-AzureRmNetworkInterface -Name $NICName -ResourceGroupName $RGname
$NIC.IpConfigurations[0].PrivateIpAddress = ‘10.1.1.5' #set IP address
$NIC.IpConfigurations[0].PrivateIPAllocationMethod = 'Static'
$NIC.DnsSettings.DnsServers = '10.1.1.5' #Set preferred DNS server 
Set-AzureRmNetworkInterface -NetworkInterface $NIC

Installing AD on Azure VM

I logged on to VM and set Primary DNS suffix

netdom computername server-2016 /add:server-2016.test.com
netdom computername server-2016 /makeprimary:server-2016.test.com

After reboot,i installed AD service:

Install-windowsfeature ad-domain-services -IncludeManagementTools
Import-Module ADDSDeployment
Install-ADDSForest `
-CreateDnsDelegation:$false `
-DatabasePath "C:\Windows\NTDS" `
-DomainMode "Win2012R2" `
-DomainName "test.com" `
-DomainNetbiosName "TEST" `
-ForestMode "Win2012R2" `
-InstallDns:$true `
-LogPath "C:\Windows\NTDS" `
-NoRebootOnCompletion:$false `
-SysvolPath "C:\Windows\SYSVOL" `
-Force:$true
