A minimum of 200 words is required, and they must be your own words. Including figures and quotes is value-added, but they will not count against your 200 word requirement.
Discussion Question 1:
In week 1, we discuss Active Directory. Next week, your manager has asked you, one of her most technical employees, to make a presentation to your co-workers on why your company should implement an Active Directory infrastructure. Explain what the features of Active Directory are and how it can benefit your company. Do some research and find another reputable company that is using active directory. Finally, provide your manager with an idea of how much the Windows 2016 software that will need to be purchased will cost.
Your manager has asked you, one of his most technical employees, to decide which of the 10 new 2016 servers will have a FSMO role, and to explain the function of these 5 roles to him. He has asked that there be a single forest with a parent domain of UMUC.edu and one subdomain of cnas.UMUC.edu. Based on that setup, where would you place the ten domain controllers on the network, and which ones would have FSMO roles? Keep in mind that there are multiple correct answers to this question.
Your new manager is just out of college and she would like the staff to utilize PowerShell more. She has designated that you will cover some of the basic Powershell commands and that you will also explain to the group how users can be added through Powershell. Use your own name when you explain how to create an account using powershell. Add yourself to the managers group, as well as the full time Employees Organizational Unit. Finally, compare and contrast using the Windows command line and Powershell so your fellow staff members can know what they can expect ahead in the coming months.
