This is Part 2 of a series of blog posts on setting up a virtualized development environment based on the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 VHDs.
You can find Part 1 here.
Now that we have the TS virtual machine built, we need to join it to the Fabrikam domain and get it ready to act in the Terminal Services role. Grab another cup of coffee and we’ll get started…
1. If the Hyper-V Manager is not already running, start it by selecting Start, All Programs, Administrative Tools and Hyper-V Manager.
2. If the DC virtual machine is not already running, start it by selecting it in the Virtual Machines list, right-click and select Start.
3. If the TS virtual machine is not already running, start it by selecting it in the Virtual Machines list, right-click and select Start.
4. In Hyper-V Manager, right-click on the TS machine, select Connect and use the administrator/pass@word1 credentials to login.
5. Select Start, Control Panel, Network and Sharing Center and select Manage Network Connections under Tasks.
6. Select Local Area Connection 21, right-click and select Properties.
7. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and click Properties.
8. Select Use the following IP address and enter the following:
9. Select Use the following DNS server address and enter the following:
10. Click OK. Click Close.
11. Click Start, Command Prompt and enter ping 192.168.0.18. You should get a timely response.
12. Close the Command Prompt.
13. Click Start, right-click on Computer and select Properties.
14. Under Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings click the Change settings link.
15. Enter TS in the Computer description text box and click the Change button.
16. In the Computer Name/Domain Changes dialog, enter TS in the Computer name text box.
17. Select the Domain option and enter Fabrikam.com in the Domain text box. Click OK.
18. When prompted for credentials, enter the administrator/pass@word1 credentials. Click OK.
19. You will see a dialog welcoming you to the Fabrikam.com domain. Click OK.
20. When prompted to restart, click Restart Now.
21. When the TS virtual machine restarts, log in using the administrator\pass@word1 credentials.
Before we add the Terminal Services role, we’ll create a new AD group for the accounts that will be allowed to connect to the TS virtual machine.
1. In Hyper-V Manager, right-click on the DC virtual machine and select Connect.
2. Select Start, Active Directory Users and Groups.
3. Select Fabrikam.com, OUs and right-click on Groups and select New Group. Enter TS_Devs for the Group name and click OK.
4. To add the users that will connect to the TS virtual machine, select the TS_Devs group, right-click and select Properties.
5. In the TS_Devs Propterties dialog, click the Members tab and click the Add button.
6. In the Enter the object names to add text box, enter “jd; kf" (without the quotes) and click Check Names.
7. Click OK after the users are confirmed.
At this point, it’s a good idea to change the password of the accounts in the Fabrikam domain to strong passwords. I’ll still refer to the pass@word1 password in this process as a placeholder for the strong password you assign to each account.
The TS virtual machine is now on the domain and ready to become the Terminal Services machine for your development. We’ll take care of that in the next post.
