7 Installing Management Server
While WSM is usually deployed in an existing network infrastructure, this document will guide the reader
through the installation steps for adding the management infrastructure components to support the
streaming operations. This document is not intended to be a complete reference guide for installing
Windows Server Operating system or the application servers running on it. It is recommended that the
reader be familiar with the Microsoft documentation and installation procedures. In this guide, it is
assumed that the necessary management components (Active Directory (AD), DNS server, DHCP server,
and Key Management Server (KMS)) are installed on the same machine. Since Microsoft AD requires a
server OS such as Windows Server 2008 and KMS requires Windows Server 2008 R2 for deploying
Windows 7 and Office 2010, the physical server must be 64 bit capable. The server profile (outlined
above for the WSM server) can also be used for the Management Server. However, the Management
Server and the WSM server must run on two separate machines. If you have an existing AD directory
machine, you can skip to section 7.2.1 below.
7.1 Installing Windows 2008 R2
As mentioned above, the management server must be 64 bit enabled. This is a requirement to install
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 since it runs only on 64 bit enabled hardware. This hardware was
outlined in Section 2. Complete the normal installation and apply all required drivers and patches for the
particular hardware selected. Since this machine will operate as the KMS host, do NOT activate the
license at this time. To simplify the installation, make sure that this machine has a static IP address and
will be in the same IP subnet as the client devices.
7.2 Configuring Active Directory
Once you have completed the normal Windows 2008 R2 server installation, open the Server Manager
icon which looks like a toolbox sitting next to a tower pc. It should automatically be installed on left part of
your toolbar. Once the management panel appears, you can click on the Roles and add the role of Active
Directory Domain Service. When the Domain service is installed, it will also install the Microsoft .Net
Framework. Allow it to continue. Once completed, the system will ask you to run the Active Directory
Domain Service Installation Wizard (dcpromo.exe) to configure your Active Directory.
