From the Server Connection tools window, select your server, select IP Addresses and Private IP, and then select Join a Domain. Type the domain name of the domain that you want to join, and then click Join Domain. If the domain name of the domain you want to join does not appear in the list of domain names, you must perform this procedure on a server that is a member of that domain. When the Join a Domain page appears, type the information that you want to enter into the fields that appear on the page, and then click OK. Step 1:
Connect to the server that hosts the DHCP server that is used to manage IP addresses.
Configure the DNS server to manage IP addresses for the entire domain.
For information about how to configure a DNS server to do this, see Configure DNS to use a static IP address.
Clone the server that hosts the DHCP server that is used to manage IP addresses from the main server that hosts the DHCP server.
Restrict the IP address range that the DHCP server allows clients to use.
Configure DNS settings to manage the IP address ranges.
Assign the host a static IP address.
Configure the hostÂ . the server that hosts the DHCP server that is used to manage IP addresses. To use this procedure, you must know which server hosts the DHCP server that is used to manage IP addresses. This procedure is not valid for servers in which a static IP address is required.
This wizard will install and configure a DHCP service and DHCP Clients on the server. In this section, the configuration of a server is changed. If the server had a GUI, additional information can be viewed.. This configuration appears only if the Add-WindowsFeature command is run under the Networking.

When a DHCP service is installed on a Windows Server 2008 system, the following new system event log messages can be found in the system event log:
The Windows Server DHCP Client service is starting.
After a reboot of the server, the following new system event log messages can be found in the system event log:

Windows Server 2008 Desktop Services
This section contains information on using Windows Server 2008 Desktop Services. The information in this section applies only to computers that have Windows Server 2008 installed.
Windows Server 2008 Desktop Services requires that a user have administrative privileges on the computer. When a user logs on to Windows Server 2008 Desktop Services, a desktop session is created and the user is logged on to the desktop session. The user performs any actions through the desktop session as if the user is logged on to a locally installed desktop. Desktop services automatically start at system startup and log off as the user logs off. For more information, seeÂ Restarting the Desktop Session.
Before a user can install Windows Server 2008 Desktop Services, the user must install the operating system or Windows Server 2003. Otherwise, the user cannot log on to the desktop session.
When a user installs Windows Server 2008 Desktop Services, he or she has the option to automatically log on to the desktop session. By default, the user also is automatically logged on to the desktop session when he or she logs on to Windows Server 2008 or another networked computer. For more information, see Optional Automatic Logon.
Before you can work with a Windows Server 2008 Desktop Services service, you must install the service on a computer in your network.
When you install Windows Server 2008 Desktop Services, a default share, User Profile (UserProfile) is created on the computer in the File and Print Services category in All Programs. The user profile store is used to store user-related information, including the user name, password, and account settings. More information about user profiles is contained in the Help and Support files included with Windows Server 2008 Desktop Services.
You cannot configure user profiles using the File and Print Services configuration tool.
