  • What are hardware and software requirements for Active Directory [Was: question]

    i've been wondering what exactly are the system hardware requirements and any software requirements for active directory?

    Most of the systems have been added to the active directory successfully with all settings migrating successfully. But i have serious issues with a few low grade systems and also some decent systems.

    On some systems, it doesn't create the username.domain object in the Documents and Settings folder for me as a destination to copy to (the old profile) and i've even tried creating that object manually, but even after copying the profile to that location, it doesn't work.

    I also have problms with some systems where they say a certain program like flashfile.swf is open, so i don't have the correct permissions to copy that file, so my whole profile copying fails.

    i've also seen situations where i come across a netlogon process failed issue, so i can't logon to the domain at all. k

    how do you unjoin a domain.

    Rayc,

    Please read the forum rules and choose an appropriate title.

    'Question' is not a suitable title.

    Reported to AD mod for changing.

      What do you define as a low grade and a decent system? (do you mean Servers or Workstations)

      Assuming this is a workstation you are referring to, has it been joined to the Domain?

      This is what comes up with as an answer to your question.

      I would suggest rephrasing it so we will know exactly what you are trying to ask.

        Do you mean the server?
        If so, very low -- a domain controller in a small (< 100 clients) domain will run on any reasonable P4 or even P3 with 512Mb RAM)

        Or do you mean the client -- no special requirements here, just able to run the client OS adequately and have a network card

            i was talking workstations. they're dell. they have a P4 processor. But the low grade ones have like 256 mb of ram. they were ridiculously slow.
