    Fresh Server 2008 R2 install for our school. Advice please

    Hello all.
    After our 2003 Server died I am going to have a go at doing a complete fresh domain install using 2008 R2 before calling in our support.

    I need to set it up as it was previously.

    Can you spot anything that I am missing.

    Server Create new domain
    Install DNS
    Install DHCP
    Install File server
    Add workstations to domain
    Add users to domain
    Create shared drive and folders for users
    Create logon script
    Create Mandatory Profile for pupils


    Create Backup Server

    anything else ?? or am I taking on to much

    Ta John

    Have I taken on too much ????

    I have ....

    a. Created 1 Domain Controller Server

    b. Added 1 PC to the Domain

    c. Created 1 user that can Logon to the domain.


    I now need to

    a. Create a mandatory profile for pupil users

    b. Add pupil users on mass to the server.

    Any help would be great.....

    Also should I install some software to manage the AD

    Thanks John

    Installing the RSAT tools should be ample for managing your AD environment
    Configuring DFS?
    Using a Key Management Server?
    Update firewall rules? (if they relied on old server name\IP's)
    Were you using WINS in your old setup? are you confident nothing now relies on this?
    If you have the budget, I would create a 2nd DC for resiliency (not essential, but good practice).

    Are you going to be solely responsible for managing the AD? if not I would make sure you protect your objects from acidental deletion
    Or if you're fully 2008 enable the AD recycle bin :-D
