Course Outline Module 1: Introduction to Designing an Active Directory and Network Infrastructure
This module introduces general design principles and the process of designing a Windows Server 2003 Active Directory infrastructure.
Module Objectives
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Explain basic design principles.
  • Describe the process of and the tasks involved in designing an Active Directory infrastructure.
Module 2: Designing a Forest and Domain Infrastructure
This module covers the first major design decisions when creating an Active Directory and network infrastructure. The Active Directory logical structure and the design of forests and domains. Key elements of the forest and domain design are naming and, in the case of a multiple-forest design, trusts. These decisions must take into account any existing structure and provide a migration solution from the existing structure to the new design.

  • Gather and analyze the information that you need to design a forest and domain infrastructure.
  • Create a logical forest design.
  • Create a domain design.
  • Design a DNS namespace strategy for forests and domains.
  • Create a trust strategy for forests.
  • Determine a migration plan for the existing infrastructure.
  • Design a schema management policy.
Module 3: Designing a Site Infrastructure
This module explains how to design a site topology to organize the Windows Server 2003 network in your organization and optimize the exchange of data and directory information.
Module Objectives
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Determine the information needed to design a site infrastructure.
  • Create a site design.
  • Modify the site design for replication.
  • Determine the placement of domain controllers in the site design.
  • Determine the placement of global catalog servers in the site design.
  • Determine the placement of single operations masters in the site design.
Module 4: Designing the Administrative Structure
This module explains how to design your administrative structure to delegate authority and simplify administrative overhead and design an organizational unit structure in a Windows Server 2003 environment.
Module Objectives
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Determine the information needed to design an administrative structure.
  • Design a network administration model.
  • Design an organizational unit structure.
  • Design an account strategy.
Module 5: Designing for Group Policy
This module describes how to gather and analyze business requirements and other data and then use that data to design a Group Policy structure and integrate the structure into an organizational unit design. It describes the role of Group Policy in the Active Directory infrastructure and factors in choosing particular implementations, such as security, software deployment, and administrative requirements. The module also covers why and how to design a change management structure.
Module Objectives
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Determine the information needed to design for Group Policy.
  • Design a Group Policy structure.
  • Create an organization unit (OU) structure for Group Policy.
  • Create a Group Policy management design.
Module 6: Designing the Physical Network
This module describes how to gather business requirements and other data and then analyze and use that data to design the physical network. It explains how to design a connectivity infrastructure, with considerations for intrasite and intersite connectivity, router placement, connection types, and virtual private networks (VPNs). It also describes how to design a domain controller structure and how to use the Active Directory Sizer tool.
The module also covers why and how to design a change management structure for networking, including monitoring. Finally, the students will create a physical network according to a scenario.
Module Objectives
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Explain the preparation necessary to design a network infrastructure.
  • Create an IP addressing scheme.
  • Design a DHCP infrastructure.
  • Design a change management structure for networking.
Module 7: Designing for Network Connectivity
This module describes how to design networking services for connectivity and protocol requirements for organizations. Also, this module describes networking solutions that establish a network foundation, provide access to public networks, and support network-based applications and authentication methods.
Module Objectives
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Determine the information that you need to design for network connectivity.
  • Evaluate connection types.
  • Design a connectivity infrastructure.
  • Create a design for Internet connectivity.
Module 8: Designing a Name Resolution Strategy
This module describes the relationship between Active Directory and DNS domain names, Windows Internet Name Service (WINS), and other nameresolution strategies.
Module Objectives
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Determine the information needed to design a name-resolution strategy.
  • Design a strategy for interoperability with Active Directory, BIND, WINS, and DHCP.
  • Design a WINS replication strategy.
  • Design a name resolution strategy for clients.
Module 9: Designing the Network Access Infrastructure
This module describes how to design a network access infrastructure by gathering relevant data, and then analyzing and using that data to design for network access security, remote access, and wireless access. The module includes strategies for authentication, administration, access monitoring, interoperability, and user education.
Module Objectives
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Gather data for network access design.
  • Design network access security.
  • Design remote access methods.
  • Design a remote access infrastructure.
  • Design a wireless access infrastructure.

This course was very, very interesting due to the instructor. He was simple, gave good examples and made a few jokes. Also, being only 5 participants was a bonus for us as we were able to share our experiences in a timely manner.

I think there is too much material to cover in one session. It's a lot of information to absorb all at once.

The only thing I would add...if you know you don't have many participants, hands on practice would be great. I would like to have had more time applying what i learned in a diagram. Once I got back to my office...i didn't know how to move a shape and associated text together. I also would like to know where I can see all the shapes offered by visio instead of searching for the shape and not knowing what to call it?

The instructor was excellent. I was pleasantly surprised by how interesting she made a potentially dry subject appear. Non-stop, great snacks provided all day from ham/egg bagels for breakfast, muffins, Valentines chocolate, chips, popcorn, gumball machine, coffee, juices etc etc. Perfect location for me as it was 2 blocks from my office.

I had no problem with the instructor's technigues, methods or delivery of the course material. He made what was otherwise fairly dry material as interesting as he possible and augmented it with practical examples that the class could relate to. The training facility and staff were also comendable, however what can't be overlooked is the IT infrastructure. During the exam the problems with latency were so bad that it affected my ability to concentrate on the material. Prior to the exam I completed 2 practice exams on paper in 35 & 37 minutes respectively. Doing the exam online it took over 1.5 hrs because it would take between 30 & 60 sec to refresh the page and show the next question. At times when I attempted to go back and review quesgtions I had marked I found my original answer wasn't recorded & I'd have to answer the question a second time. By the end of 70 min I was so digruntled I couldn't wait to finish regardless of the end result. It may not seem fair to evaluate the favility in this manner, but as a student the outcome is the ultimate measurement of a training favility.
