Creating a Domain by Using Windows 2000 Server (Windows CE 5.0)

Windows CE 5.0

When setting up your 802.1x network, you must first specify a domain name and promote your server to domain controller. For information about how to perform these steps, see the Windows 2000 Server Help.

The steps of this process are written with the following assumptions:

  • You have installed Windows 2000 Server and Service Pack 3 or later on TESTSERVER.
  • You have Administrator rights to configure your server.
  • You have obtained the Media Access Control (MAC) address for each of the four access points. To obtain the MAC address for your access points, consult the product-specific documentation.

To create a parent domain

  1. From Control Panel, choose Add/Remove Programs, and then choose Add/Remove Windows Components.

    The Windows Components Wizard appears.

  2. On the Windows 2000 Components page perform the following steps:
    1. Add Internet Information Services
    2. Double-click Network Services, and then add the following:

    • Internet Authentication Service (IAS)
    • Windows Internet Name Service (WINS)
    Note   While you are installing these components, if a warning appears asking you to set the static IP addresses for WINS Server and DNS Server, choose OK. In the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box choose Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then choose Properties. The Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box appears. Choose Use the following IP Address, and then set the following values.
