Existing Infrastructures and Branch Deployments in Microsoft Windows Server 2008

Many design projects facing an enterprise administrator involve an existing server and network services infrastructure, which need to be evaluated to determine the best options for upgrade or migration. Another common design challenge is the addition of fully functional branch offices, which should be planned carefully to ensure proper Active Directory and network services, while maintaining the necessary level of security. This course explores the considerations and tasks administrators must grasp before embarking on an Active Directory restructure, whether it involves an in-place upgrade to Windows Server 2008 server and functional level, or the addition of new Windows Server 2008 servers and the migration of Active Directory objects using the Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT). When administrators restructure an enterprise, they must also consider servers, client operating systems, non-Windows services, and applications that may no longer function properly in a Windows Server 2008 environment. The course outlines these concepts, and also delves into information about branch offices including domain controller or Read-only Domain Controller configuration, protecting the physical security of your server, and recommendations for optimizing name resolution services for clients.
