CMIT 370IntroductionIn this proposal, I will discuss many topics LLC has requested for me to cover. LLCmanufactures and distributes solar panels for their clients on the market. There are currently threelocations with plans to expand in the future, I will layout the configurations in order to meet theirbusiness goals.Active DirectThe domain name for each site are as follow;simplesolar.com for the dallas location as the rootdomain, La.simplesolar.com for the Los Angeleslocation, and Houston.simplesolar.com for theHouston location. This layout will include a two-way transitive trust which will allow users acrossthe board to access network resources from allsites.RODCThe read only domain controller can be easily deploy in locations where physical security cannotbe guaranteed (Microsoft, 2011). The benefits of implementing RODC are improved security,faster logon times, and more efficient access to resources on the network.RODC will be placed
CMIT 370in the LA site and will ensure that users are not able to make any changes in the domaincontroller.FSMOTo prevent conflicting updates in windows, the single-master model will perform updates tocertain objects in a single-master fashion (Microsoft, n,d). The FSMO roles will be delegatedaccordingly; The schema master and domain naming master will be located in the Dallas DomainController while the other sites will be delegated with Infrastructure Master, RID master, andPDC master roles.AD backup and recoveryActive directory backup and recovery is extremely important especially when the organizationhas data security as one of its top priorities. Scheduling regular backups will ensure sensitivefiles and other information are not lost or corrupted in the event of an emergency. Windowsserver 2012 has a sever backup feature built-in located in the roles and features on the servermanager. Backups will be performed multiple times throughout the week during non-workinghours to prevent any interruptions doing regular business hours. One of the best practices forsecuring backup files of the network is by storing the backups offsite. Offsite backups willensure the data is kept safe in case of an disaster or accident.
