1561: Designing a Microsoft Windows 2000 Directory Services Infrastructure (3 Days)

About this Course

This course provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to design a Microsoft Windows 2000 directory services infrastructure in an enterprise network. Strategies are presented to assist the student in identifying the information technology needs of an organization, and then designing an Active Directory structure that meets those needs.

At Course Completion

At the end of the course, students will be able to:

  • Describe guidelines for gathering business and administrative information from an organization, and explain how an architect uses that information to design an Active Directory structure for an enterprise.
  • Design an Active Directory naming strategy that accommodates the organizational structure of a business.
  • Develop a plan to help protect and delegate administrative authority over Active Directory objects based on the administrative model of an organization.
  • Identify business needs and scenarios that may require modification of the Active Directory schema, and plan a policy to govern schema modification.
  • Create an Active Directory design based on administrative Group Policy requirements defined by business needs.
  • Design an Active Directory domain and the organizational unit hierarchy within the domain.
  • Identify situations where a multiple-domain Active Directory structure may be necessary to meet the administrative and security needs of an organization, and then design a structure that meets those needs.
  • Design a site topology for managing Active Directory replication that fulfills the administrative needs of an organization, and that optimizes the available bandwidth of the physical network.
  • Plan for the design of an Active Directory structure that combines administrative, replication, and naming requirements of an organization.
