How do I need to configure my IP Address on a New Domain Controller?

Hey,

I am running Server 2008 Datacenter R2.
I need help with configuring IP Addresses on my new domain.

On my Server, what does my IP Address need to be?
EX:
IP Address: 127.0.0.1
Subnet: Default 255.255.255.0
Gateway: modem address??? 192.168.0.1
DNS: 127.0.0.1?

Does the DNS need to match my Ip Address? Do I need a gateway, am I setting that up correctly? I need help obviously.

Why are you configuring it manually? Just let it do the setup automatically.

Well then the IP needs to be an available address in the subnet that the router is on.

The gateway IP will be the IP of the router.

The DNS IP will be the IP of the DNS server on your network.

Just let it run automatically and copy down those numbers and then set it to manual and put in the same numbers.

I'll try the automatic again. When setting up I don't remember it giving me the numbers anytime during the install.

Install what? The domain controller? It wouldn't give you those numbers during the installation of the domain controller.

That stuff is done by the OS itself, not the domain controller software.

What numbers am I supposed to copy down? Also, can I do this without having a Static IP?

You're supposed to copy down the numbers that you said you wanted above.

The whole point of copying it down is so that you can get the numbers you need to set up the static IP information. So by necessity, you must do it without setting it up as a static IP.
