  2. If you are configuring Active Directory Settings for the first time, use the Click here link. If not, use the Add New Domain button.
  3. Provide the name of the domain to be configured.
  4. Add domain controllers (DCs) by clicking the + button. This will automatically discover the available DCs.
  5. Select the DC from the list of available choices discovered from the DNS.
