Colorado State University Intermediate Networking Questions

Provide technical and justification reasons for each choice, citing resources as appropriate. Provide rough estimates of scheduling and manpower required for deploying your solution. You may summarize the schedule and manpower at the end of the document, or include it separately for each section.

The Windows Server 2016 operating system should be used for all aspects of the solution.

Your solution should cover the following four numbered areas and associated bulleted items listed under each:

Deployment and Server Editions

How many total servers are needed? Which roles will be combined?

  1. Which edition of Windows Server will be used for each server (e.g., Standard, Data)?

Should servers be virtualized using Hyper-V?

Where will each of the servers be located (which of the two sites)?

  • How will the servers be deployed?
  • DNS
  • DNS namespace design (e.g., domain name[s] chosen split DNS for internet/intranet, zones)
  • How will DNS be handled for the second site?
  • Active Directory

Number of AD domains and names of those domains

  1. Will there be any Read-Only Domain Controllers?
