Windows Server 2012 AD DC/VirtualBox/pfSense



  • Hi,

    So i'm trying to setup a virtual test environment for my microsoft MCSA server exams.

    I want to use VirtualBox for:

    1. pfSense

    2. Windows Server 2012/R2 with active directory domain controller, dhcp and dns services.

    3. Windows 10 virtual machine that has to communicate with the server and has to be in the AD

    –-------------------

    The current TCP/IP of my macbook i'm using to setup this virtual environment is:

    IP: 192.168.0.161/24

    Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1


    I made a virtual machine in virtual box for pfSense & modified the network settings to 2 adapters : bridged & internal


    Within the pfSense configuration I disabled DHCP and modified it to static instead.

    What ip addresses do i have to assign on pfSense for both WAN & LAN?

    I want to set the Windows Server 2012 DC on a network range of 10.10.0.0/16.


    The current TCP/IP of my macbook i'm using to setup this virtual environment is:

    IP: 192.168.0.161/24

    Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1



  • by selecting 'static' in the interface configuration page

    by selecting 'static' in the interface configuration page

    Hey, sorry for the misunderstanding.

    I do know how to set it on static in the configuration.

    What i mean is what ip addresses do i have to give to WAN & LAN.



  • If this is just for testing purposes set WAN to DHCP and your LAN to whatever you want and then configure your virtual network as you please.
