This page contains the functional requirements for the Domain Controller role - that is, the things the role is expected to do when it's working properly. If Domain Controller is a Featured Role, then according to the Fedora_Release_Criteria, these requirements must be met to some extent for each Fedora Server pre-release and release: refer to the criteria pages for the exact details of which requirements must be met at each milestone.

Unless otherwise stated, it is always assumed that the role has been correctly deployed and configured by the system administrator.
