Managing User Accounts in Windows 2012 Active Directory March 30, 2013

Posted by vbry21 in Uncategorized.

One of the courses I teach is the Microsoft Windows 2012 Installing and Configuring course, the Microsoft designation is the 20410B

In the presentation, I cover an overview Managing User Accounts in Windows Server 2012 DNS

This demonstration shows you how to do basic User Account Management. To do this we use Active Directory Users and Computers. However AD management is quite a complex topic and later demos will cover more of the AD Utilities available. Below is a brief description of each

Active Directory Administration Snap-Ins


Most AD DS administration is performed with the following snap-ins and consoles:


  • Active Directory Users and Computers. This snap-in manages most common day-to-day resources, including users, groups, computers, and organizational units (OUs). This is likely to be the most heavily used snap-in for an Active Directory administrator.


  • Active Directory Sites and Services. This snap-in manages replication, network topology, and related services.


  • Active Directory Domains and Trusts. This snap-in configures and maintains trust relationships and the forest functional level.


  • Active Directory Schema snap-in. This snap-in examines and modifies the definition of Active Directory attributes and object classes. It is the blueprint for AD DS. It is rarely viewed, and even more rarely changed. Therefore, the Active Directory Schema snap-in is not installed, by default.


The demonstration is available at the BryanQA Youtube site
