To Modify Domain Controller Properties

To modify domain controller properties, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.
  2. In the console tree, double-click the domain node.
  3. In the console tree, click the folder containing the domain controller. (By default, domain controllers are installed in the Domain Controllers folder.)
  4. In the details pane, right-click the domain controller that you want to modify, and then click Properties.

The General Tab

Some properties on the General tab are automatically assigned when the computer joins the domain or whenever it is started. These properties cannot be modified by the administrator (for example, DNS name, Computer name, and Role).

  • In the Description box, type a brief description of the computer.
  • Click to select the Trust computer for delegation box to turn on services running as local system on this computer to request additional services from other servers on behalf of a remote client by authenticating as the client to the other servers.

    CAUTION: This setting is security sensitive and should be turned on only after careful consideration.
    When you select this option, services that are running as local system on this computer can request services from other servers.

The "Operating System" Tab



The Operating System tab shows the operating system name, version, and Service pack in use. Properties on the Operating System tab cannot be modified.


The "Member Of" Tab

The Member Of list displays the groups in the local domain and any universal groups to which the currently selected object belongs.

  • Click Add to add new groups to the list. Add groups from the local domain or from universal groups in other domains in the forest.
  • Click any group in the list, and then click Remove. This group will no longer be available for membership.
  • Click Set Primary Group to set the Primary Group. Primary groups are used exclusively by Macintosh clients and POSIX-compliant programs. Unless you are using these services, you do not have to change the primary group. A user's primary group must be in the same domain as the user's account and the primary group must be either a global or universal security group.

The Location Tab

The Location tab shows the location of the computer.

In the Location box, specify where the computer is located.

For example, A/100 indicates that the computer is located in office 100 of building A.


The "Managed By" Tab

The Managed By tab shows the user or contact responsible for the management of the currently selected object.
  • Click Change to change the manager for this object.
  • Click View to see the properties of the user or contact responsible for the currently selected object. This opens the properties sheet for the user or contact.
  • Click Clear to clear the user or contact responsible for the management of the currently selected object.
