External Resources

If you want a computer to be a member of an Active Directory domain, you should add that computer to the Active Directory Domain. Following steps will make the stand-alone server SERV02, a member of Active Directory domain omnisecu.com.

Before proceeding, make sure you have connectivity from computer SERV02 to SERV01.omnisecu.com, by pinging to 192.168.1.11, which is the IP address of Active Directory domain controller SERV01.omnisecu.com.

Configure SERV02 TCP/IP configuration to use the Domain Name System (DNS) server installed on SERV01.omnisecu.com for host name resolution. To configure the computer SERV02 to use the Domain Name System (DNS) server running on SERV01.omnisecu.com, open the TCP/IP properties of SERV02.
