As a part of MIS 2501 we are challenged to learn and implement virtualization. For our class we use cloud base virtualization in Microsoft Azure to do our tech challenges. Then for fun to learn more I also did the tech challenges on VMware to practices and learn more. The tech challenges help set a fundamental foundation in understanding a companies architecture. We first start out by setting up servers in our case we used Windows Server 2012 R2.


Tech Challenges

  • Set up Virtual Servers, Domain Controller(DC), File Server, Work Station
    • Set up ACDC, DNS, DHCP on the DC
    • Assign all servers static IP address and make DC the primary DSN
    • Have the servers join the domain
  • Create groups and users and drives/folders to share within groups and company wide
    • Making groups like Accounting, Finance, Marketing
    • Add users for the created groups and assign to the various groups
    • Add drives/folders for Company shared, Accounting, Finance, Marketing
      • Map drives, Company shared to domain users, Accounting to Accounting group etc…
    • Create a login in script to map the drives to user login
