#1 Server Being Built
Here is a video of the server being built.
The server was build using a kickstart USB, that means it builds a lot of the server for you without asking too many questions. While off the network.
At the end of the kickstart (about halfway through the video) I had to remove the flash drive and press enter
It reboots and a log in prompt appears
I logged in with the admin user and the changeme password and immediately changed the admin and root passwords.
I also ran nmtui to set the network information. I did a “manual” for the IPv4 configuration and set the static IP to 192.168.1.10/24, I also entered some other information like DNS, but I used some public DNS servers (Google’s 126.96.36.199 and cloudflare’s 188.8.131.52) temporarily while I get this network set up. Eventually this server will be an internal DNS server and all internal machines will reference it for DNS queries.
The entire video was recorded with the server not connected to the network. When the server had the users and its static IP address, I moved it to its final location next to the router. From here on out I will show how I do things from a Windows 10 client.
If you want to manually build the server, a have a prior post on how to build it.
We are close to finishing for the day, just need to get DHCP and internal DNS working.
