Microsoft Windows Server 2008: Active Directory Domain Security ChangesSecuring Windows Server 2008, 2008Co-Authors: Aaron TiensivuAbstract:
This chapter reviews Microsoft Windows Server 2008’s Active Directory. The Domain serves as the administrative boundary of Active Directory. It is the most basic component that can functionally host the Directory; the Domain is used as a container of computers, users, groups, and other object containers. Objects within the Domain share a common Directory database partition, replication boundaries and characteristics, security policies, and security relationships with other Domains. Administrative rights granted in one Domain are valid only within that Domain. This also applies to Group Policy Objects, but not necessarily to trust relationships. Security policies such as password policy, account lockout policy, and Kerberos ticket policy are defined on a per-Domain basis. The Domain is also the primary boundary defining the DNS and NetBIOS namespaces. The DNS infrastructure is a requirement for an Active Directory Domain and should be defined before creating the Domain.
Chapter 1 – Microsoft Windows Server 2008: An OverviewSecuring Windows Server 2008, 2008Co-Authors: Aaron TiensivuAbstract:
This chapter provides an overview of the new features of Windows Server 2008. It is important to understand how changes are implemented and features are improved. Knowing how to tell which hardware components are appropriate and which operating systems are designed for particular roles and functionalities is critical when choosing a new server or deciding whether an existing server is up to the new task. The new roles in Windows Server 2008 provide a new way for users to determine how they are implemented, configured, and managed within an Active Directory Domain or forest. Knowledge of key features such as Server Manager, Server Core, AD Certificate Services, and AD Domain Services help in improving the user experience, the system administrator experience, and organizational security.

Samba as a PDC and BDCPractical LPIC-3 300, 2019Co-Authors: Antonio VazquezAbstract:
Until now we have configured Samba as a stand-alone server, but Samba can also be configured to work in a Domain, similar to what happens with a Windows server. Samba can act as a Domain controller (DC) either in an NT-like Domain or in an Active Directory Domain. It can also integrate as a member server in both environments. In this chapter and the next one we’ll see the different roles a Samba server can assume in an NT-like Domain. We’ll cover the following concepts in this chapter:
Samba 4 as an AD Compatible Domain ControllerPractical LPIC-3 300, 2019Co-Authors: Antonio VazquezAbstract:
In Chapters 15 and 16, we configured a Samba Domain for the first time, an NT-like Samba Domain to be exact. Samba 3 and earlier versions could only implement NT-like Domains, but not an Active Directory Domain. All this changed when Samba 4 was released. Samba 4 can effectively work as an Active Directory DC, implementing all the necessary services. In this chapter we’ll cover the following concepts:
configuring samba as a Domain member server in an existing Active Directory Domain, 2019Co-Authors: Antonio VazquezAbstract:
In Chapter 17 we saw how to install Samba 4 Active Directory DCs. Now we’re focused on configuring Samba as a Domain member in an Active Directory Domain. This is similar to what we did in Chapter 16 when we installed a Samba 3 NT Domain member. In this chapter we’ll cover the following concepts:
