In this installment of our series, we cover the new features and concepts in Active Directory with the release of Windows Server 2008. We review some of the key concepts that you need to understand before introducing Windows Server 2008 into your Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) infrastructure. We spend some time exploring how to implement and administer these new features. When planning how to deploy Windows Server 2008 into a new forest or into your existing forest, there are some areas you need to focus on. We discuss how to position servers running Windows Server 2008 to gain the maximum impact in security, availability, and manageability. We also describe the features and benefits of the new installation options available with the Windows Server 2008 operating system. By deploying Read-Only Domain Controllers and Server Core Domain Controllers, you can significantly improve server security and minimize the attack surface of your most important server roles.
