Windows Server 2008 Active Directory Outline

Design an Active Directory migration in Windows Server 2008.

In this course, you will learn how to design an Active Directory Infrastructure in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems. You’ll go through the steps and processes related to the design elements of Active Directory forests, domain infrastructure, sites and replication, administrative structures, group policies, and Public Key Infrastructures. You will also learn how to design for security, high availability, disaster recovery, and migrations.

What You’ll Learn

  • Design Active Directory Forest and Trusts
  • Design an Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain and Domain Name Service (DNS) integration
  • Design AD DS sites and AD DS replication
  • Create an AD DS domain controller deployment plan
  • Create an AD DS domain administration design and partially implement the design
  • Create an AD DS Group Policy design and implement components of that design
  • Design and implement AD DS security policies that meet security requirements
  • Design and implement a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) deployment by using Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS)
  • Design an Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) solution and deploy RMS for internal users
  • Create and implement an Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) design
  • Validate a federated web single sign-on (SSO) deployment
  • Design and implement a domain restructure
