About This CourseDuring this five-day course, students will learn how to design an Active Directory infrastructure in the Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems. Students will learn how to design Active Directory forests, domain infrastructure, sites and replication, administrative structures, Group Policy, and Public Key Infrastructures (PKIs). Students will also learn how to design for security, high availability, disaster recovery, and migrations.

Module1: Overview of Active Directory Design
Formost organizations, the Active Directory deployment may be the single mostimportant component in the IT infrastructure. When organizations deploy AD DSor any of the other Active Directory services within Windows Server 2008, theyare deploying a central authentication and authorization service that providesSSO access to many other network services in the organization. AD DS providesthe primary security mechanism within most organizations, and it enablespolicy-based management for user and computer accounts. You can use the otherActive Directory services to extend some of this functionality to users who areexternal to the organization.
 
Thecritical functionality that the Active Directory services provide means thatyou should design your Active Directory infrastructure to meet yourorganization’s unique requirements. This module provides an overview of theinformation that you must gather to prepare for an Active Directory deployment,and it provides an overview of the steps that you use as you create an ActiveDirectory design.
Lessons
  • Preparing For Active Directory Design
  • Designing the Internal AD DS Infrastructure
  • Extending the Active Directory Design
 
Module2: Designing an AD DS Forest Infrastructure
Todesign the infrastructure of an AD DS forest for your organization, first youmust collect organizational and administrative requirements, and then you mustdecide which design to use. There are several possible designs, and each onerequires some trade-offs. Based on the requirements of your organization, youmust determine the type of AD DS forest and forest root domain. You also mustplan for trusts between forests, determine whether your organization requiresmultiple forests, and determine which modifications, if any, you must make tothe AD DS schema. In addition, you must design for the time synchronization ofall computer clocks in your organization by using the Windows Time service(Win32Time).
 
Inthis module, you will learn about forest design concepts as well as aboutforest trusts, the AD DS schema, and the Windows Time Service.
Lessons
  • Designing an AD DS Forest
  • Designing AD DS Forest Trusts
  • Planning for AD DS Schema Changes
  • Designing a Windows Time Service Deployment
 
Module3: Designing an AD DS Domain Infrastructure
Afterdesigning the infrastructure for the AD DS forest as described in Module 1, youneed to design the AD DS domain infrastructure. To do this, you first need todecide on the AD DS domain design model and the placement and deployment ofdomain controllers, based on your organization's needs. After designing the ADDS domain, you then integrate the internal and external DNS namespaces with theAD DS domain by using DNS servers. If your design consists of multiple domains,you can create domain trusts to enable easy and reliable communication from onedomain to another. You need to choose the right type of domain trust, based onyour organization's needs.
 
Inthis module, you will learn about designing AD DS domains, DNS, and domaintrusts.
Lessons
  • Designing AD DS Domains
  • Designing DNS Namespaces in an AD DS Environment
  • Designing AD DS Domain Trusts
 
Module4: Designing AD DS Sites and Replication
Youshould design the site topology for the network after you design the logicalstructure of the AD DS infrastructure in your organization. The site topologyis a logical representation of the physical network. You use the site topologyto manage replication and logon network traffic, among other things. When youcreate the site design, include information about the location of the AD DSsites, the AD DS domain controllers within each site, and the site links andsite-link bridges that support AD DS replication between sites. Windows Server2008 uses site information for many purposes, including routing replication,client affinity, system volume (SYSVOL) replication, Distributed File System(DFS) namespaces, and service locations.
 
Inthis module, you will learn how to design a distributed directory service thatsupports domain controllers that are in portions of your network that areseparated by expensive, slow, or unreliable links.
Lessons
  • Designing AD DS Sites
  • Designing AD DS Replication
 
Module5: Designing AD DS Domain Controllers
Thismodule explains how to design an AD DS domain controller.
Lessons
  • Designing Domain Controllers and Domain Controller Placement
  • Designing RODC Deployments
  • Designing Domain Controllers As Virtual Machines
  • Designing Domain Controller Availability
 
Module6: Designing AD DS Domain Administration
Youcan use an AD DS domain to simplify the administration of your IT resources bycreating a manageable structure that underlies a network infrastructure basedon the Windows operating system.
 
Todesign the effective administration of an AD DS domain, you need to firstassess the state of the configuration and administration of the AD DSenvironment. To determine the best design for your AD DS domain administration,first collect information about how your organization needs to administer thevarious resources in your AD DS domain environment. This information providesthe basis on which you can design and build the AD DS domain structures thatwill enable the most effective AD DS domain administrative methods for yourorganization, such as organizational units (OUs), AD DS groups, and user andcomputer account objects.
Lessons
  • Planning the Delegation of AD DS Administration
  • Designing the Structure of OUs
  • Designing an AD DS Group Strategy
  • Planning to Manage User and Computer Accounts
 
Module7: Designing AD DS Group Policy
TheAD DS Group Policy environment is the principal vehicle for configurationmanagement in Windows Server 2008. An effective Group Policy design means amore standardized and easy-to-manage environment in which to perform all otheradministrative tasks.
 
Thismodule introduces the key concepts for designing Group Policy as they relate toplanning, implementing. and managing Group Policy in AD DS.
Lessons
  • Preparing for Group Policy Design
  • Designing Group Policy Objects
  • Designing Group Policy Processing
  • Planning for Group Policy Management
 
Module8: Designing AD DS Security
Oneof the primary reasons to deploy a directory service like AD DS is to providesecurity for the organization’s network. Managing secure access to networkresources is critical to ensuring that only authorized users can access thedata and that only authorized administrators can make changes to theenvironment.
 
Byensuring that the AD DS deployment is secure, you can help ensure systemstability and reliability, and you can minimize the number of successfulattempts to jeopardize system security and integrity.
Lessons
  • Preparing to Design AD DS Security
  • Designing AD DS Account and Password Policies
  • Designing AD DS Domain Controller Security
  • Designing AD DS Administrator Security
 
Module9: Designing a Public Key Infrastructure
Thismodule explains how to design a PKI deployment by using Windows Server 2008 ADCS.
Lessons
  • Overview of PKI and AD CS
  • Designing a Certification Authority Deployment
  • Designing Certificate Templates
  • Designing Certificate Distribution and Revocation
 
Module10: Designing and Deploying AD RMS
Thismodule explains how to design and implement a rights protection infrastructureby using AD RMS.
Lessons
  • AD RMS Overview
  • Designing an AD RMS Deployment
  • Extending the AD RMS Deployment Outside an Organization
 
Module11: Designing an AD LDS Infrastructure
Thismodule explains how to design and implement an AD LDS deployment.
Lessons
  • AD LDS Deployment Scenarios
  • Designing an AD LDS Server Deployment
  • Designing AD LDS Replication
  • Integrating AD LDS with AD DS
 
Module12: Designing an AD FS Infrastructure
Thismodule explains how to design an implementation of Active Directory FederationServices (AD FS).
Lessons
  • Overview of an AD FS Design
  • Designing an AD FS Deployment
  • Designing AD FS Claims and Applications
