Client connection

UCS is installed as virtual machine, the DS218+ provides the DATA storage as domain client and last but not least the connection between Windows 10 and Active Directory needs to be configured.

Remember that the client name is important to find each computer in network again. I also have to underline that the UCS domain server provides the DNS service and all clients need to get configured to this. I already mentioned that the UCS could be configured as DHCP server - this setup would protect you from a lot of connection headaches.

Last step are


  • install a Windows Client ( Windows 10 )
  • change the machine name ( ows101 )
  • connect to the Active Directory as client ( z3r0.at )
  • download RSAT tools
  • edit and update GPO policies

AD connect & RSAT
