Who Can Install Active Directory on Windows Server 2012?

If you are going to be creating the first domain in a new forest, log on as the local Administrator. If you’re adding a new domain in an existing forest, be a member of the Enterprise Admins group for the forest you’re going to join. To add a new domain controller to an existing domain, be a member of the Domain Admins group.

Once you’re logged into the server with the correct account, you’ll next add the Active Directory Domain Services feature to your server. You can install the Active Directory Services feature on to Windows Server 2012 by both PowerShell and Server Manager.

The fastest method of installing features in Windows Server 2012 is with PowerShell; let’s take a look at the steps needed to accomplish this.
