You need to have an Active Directory domain in place. I’m picking up where I left off in my previous blog article Use PowerShell to Create a New Active Directory Forest on Windows 2019 Server Core Installation (no-GUI). The procedure shown in this blog article is for demonstration purposes only. Install the DHCP server feature. Install-WindowsFeature -Name DHCP Add the DHCP scope to the server. Add-DhcpServerv4Scope -Name '192.168.129.x' -StartRange 192.
Windows Server 2019
You have a fresh installation of Windows Server 2019 that was installed using the default installation type of server core installation (no-GUI).

You’ve completed the following configuration prior to attempting to turn this server into a domain controller: Install all the available Windows Updates Set the time zone Set the computer name Set a static IP address Log into the server and launch PowerShell by typing powershell.
