Automatically build a Windows 2008 Stand-alone Domain

The last nine months at work have been spent on a project to create a fully automatic installation of a stand-alone Windows Servers infrastructure. Nothing fancy, just the basic Serverroles one might need in a stand-alone Domain.

I had alot of fun transforming all the needed commandlines, scripts and settings into RES Wisdom Modules and Tasks. So after that experience I’ve decided to recreate a new installation set for my own HomeLab. So alot of new posts will be describing the automation of Server Role and software installations and configurations.

I’ve found myself a new Quest!
