You should not have to configure if PC is pulling IP Address from DHCP. Your answer is correct if you needed to configure workstations manually. In an enterprise corporate environment DHCP sets this up for you.

It is the default gateway question and I have to agree with Barry on this one that the DHCP would provide this information. Typically no one is going to manually setup all of the TCP/IP on all client pc’s – even if ultimately they are being pointed towards the Windows Domain. It’s not really a wrong answer per se but it’s all in the wording.

What are the best practices for naming root domain?
Why is it not best practice to use .local?
How do we link our DC to a website we may be hosting on Godaddy?
Thank you.

Hi profile avatar James Daly

You can use your internet domain name like domain.com for naming the root domain.

Using “.local” as your Active Directory domain can lead to challenges with name resolution and is a reserved domain name for Multicast DNS plus other issues.

You can add a DNS entry for the website to DNS Console. If it is the opposite way, to resolve your DC you add the entry of the Public IP to Godaddy of your DC and a port forward on the firewall to the DC depending on the service you want to use like RDP (not recommended).
