Network Design Page 7 d. Server builds task listData TypesThe types of data served by the network will be reports, bulletins, accounting information, personnel profiles, industry specific daycare software and web pages. There will be some still graphics and possibly a small amount of voice and video. Data SourcesData will be created and used at all workstations on the network. The data will be produced by software applications in a Windows 10 environment on all workstations and Windows Server 2012 R2 on the server. Office 2016 Professional (Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, and Outlook) will also be utilized. Other data sources to be supported on at least a limited basis will be Windows 10 Accessories (Paint, Notepad, etc.), NetMeeting, and Media Player. The network will not be accessible from outside the facility Numbers of Users and Priority LevelsThe maximum estimated number of users on the network at any given time is 30. Management will be given top priorities. Transmission Speed RequirementsThe network is to be transparent to the users. Load Variation EstimatesBased on information provided by Talon Textile Fasteners owners, the busiest times will be Monday thru Friday between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Reliability RequirementsIn keeping with user expectations and industry standards, the LAN is expected to operate at 99.9% uptime and an undiscovered error rate of .001%. Security RequirementsA firewall will be used so unauthorized use will be restricted. Part of the security will be user accounts and passwords that will give limited access. There will be different access capabilities for network managers and users.
e. Server Test PlanFinal installation and implementation will be performed on-site to interconnect the devices and services on each LAN, and ultimately - connect the two LAN’s and the Virtual Private Network between them. Testing Procedures1. Access each server via FTP client 2. Upload files to each server via FTP 3. Map to shared folders on each server 4. Transfer files between workstation and server using Windows Explorer 5. Administer from workstation on each server 6. Create virtual sites on each server 7. Create virtual folders/directories on each server 8. Transfer sites and files between servers 9. Stop and re-start each web service on each server 10. Start, stop and restart FTP services, Index server using Internet Information Manager 11. Access all websites on servers 12. Create user accounts 13. Create user groups 14. Add users to the groups 15. Manage user accounts via User Manager for Domains f) Server Maintenance PlanA server maintenance plan is typically created by the technical manager. He or she is responsible for the implementation and support of all the physical servers and related equipment. As with all equipment, there is a specific list of scheduled maintenance that must occur to maintain both the warranty and the performance of the equipment. There are three
