The following resources come from the 2009/10 BSc in Computer and Network Technologies (course number 2ELE0072) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes.

The objectives of this project are to demonstrate by building a virtual local area network environment:
• Installation and configuration of virtual network/server operating systems (virtual)
• Installation and configuration of virtual workstations (operating systems)
• Ensure a suitable level of security and access control exists for the virtual network.
• Ensure that the network can be easily managed.

This project entails using a virtual network to demonstrate a typical setup for a networked office environment. Students are expected to be able to perform simple installation of workstation and server operating systems. Students are required to investigate important management tools on a server operating system and to configure these tools to simplify management of the network. The network environment should have a suitable level of security and access control.

  • 1. Mini Project- A Virtual Network Project Author: University of Hertfordshire Date created: Date revised: 2009 Abstract The following resources come from the 2009/10 BSc in Computer and Network Technologies (course number 2ELE0072) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. The objectives of this project are to demonstrate by building a virtual local area network environment: • Installation and configuration of virtual network/server operating systems (virtual) • Installation and configuration of virtual workstations (operating systems) • Ensure a suitable level of security and access control exists for the virtual network. • Ensure that the network can be easily managed. This project entails using a virtual network to demonstrate a typical setup for a networked office environment. Students are expected to be able to perform simple installation of workstation and server operating systems. Students are required to investigate important management tools on a server operating system and to configure these tools to simplify management of the network. The network environment should have a suitable level of security and access control.

  • 2. Mini Project- A Virtual Network Project Section 1. Project Introduction 1. Learning Outcomes assessed (as taken from the DMD) All Learning Outcomes specified in the Definitive Module Documentation are assessed as part of this miniproject, the specific Learning Outcomes are: Knowledge and Understanding • Be able to analyse and breakdown problem tasks into manageable steps. • Integrate previous and concurrent learning and to use it to solve technology-based problems. • Be able to describe the project life-cycle appropriately. • Be able to select appropriate Computer and Network Technologies and techniques for a given situation. Skills and Attributes • Produce a solution to a defined Computer and Network Technology problem. • Carry out a simple critical evaluation of their solution. • Demonstrate an ability to work effectively in a teams, small groups and individually. • Demonstrate an ability to manage time and resources effectively. 2. Project Title: A Virtual Network Project 3. Project Objectives: (technical, specific to this project) Demonstrate by building a virtual local area network environment: • Installation and configuration of virtual network/server operating systems (virtual) • Installation and configuration of virtual workstations (operating systems) • Ensure a suitable level of security and access control exists for the virtual network. • Ensure that the network can be easily managed. 4. Project Summary: (50 words max) This project entails using a virtual network to demonstrate a typical setup for a networked office environment. Students are expected to be able to perform simple installation of workstation and server operating systems. Students are required to investigate important management tools on a server operating system and to configure these tools to simplify management of the network. The network environment should have a suitable level of security and access control. 5. Introductory Lecture (2hrs) Content: The introductory lecture consists of: i. Operating systems, Server operating systems ii. Network management tools, network services iii. Laboratory setup, virtual environment, virtual networks. 6. Preparation Session (3hrs): i. Familiarisation with Virtual PCs and Virtual Servers. ii. Familiarisation with laboratory network setup, and constraints. iii. Practical work on installing an O/S on the Virtual PC. 7. Day 1 Expected Outcomes for the day: Each student is expected to configure the operating system, including server operating system of a strict specification. Assessment criteria; the way in which the work has been planned and managed, the configuration and adherence to the specification as well as the technical parameters considered. Page 2 of 6
  • 3. Mini Project- A Virtual Network Project Key Tasks: Setting up the virtual environment to allow: 1. Design the typical office setup (e.g. 2 client workstations, and 1 server) 2. Perform installation of the appropriate Windows® o/s 3. Configure basic settings on client operating systems. 8. Day 2 Expected Outcomes for the day: Each student must now restore the image of the operating system from previous tasks. Each student must now plan to configure the server, each client, to a set of requirement in terms of providing services and most importantly, security. Assessment criteria; the way in which the work has been planned and managed, and the overall integrity of the virtual office. Key Tasks: • Re-establishing the virtual network created on Day 1. • Configure server operating systems and tools to enable management of client workstations • Create shared resources for client workstations (e.g. Printers, folders, etc.) • Ensure that a suitable level of security access and control exists. 9. Facilitator guidance (key ideas to draw out from students): Day 1: Virtual PC, Virtual Server, Client operating systems, Server operating systems Day 2: Network Management, Security Access and Control. 10. Required Resources: Laboratory Facilities and Teaching Support. Laboratory Resources: Workstations capable of running Virtual PC software. Servers for running Virtual Servers. DVDs for student to backup their workstation images. Page 3 of 6
  • 4. Mini Project- A Virtual Network Project Section 2. Project Day 1 Tasks List Server Server name: Domain name: Server IP Address: Server Subnet Mask: Server Gateway: Install server operating system Install and configure Active Directory Create 5 user accounts (mini1 -> mini5) Create 5 folders for each user (mini1 -> mini5) Create 1 manager account (manager) Create 1 folder for the manager Secure each user’s folder Create shares to each user’s folder Configure a mapped network drive for each user (must reflect each user’s directory on the server) Configure DNS server for Active Directory Client Client name: Domain name: Client IP Address: Client Subnet Mask: Client Gateway: Install client operating system Enable users to login to the system (mini1 -> mini5) Enable manager to login to the system Enable each user to have access to their mapped network drive Allow manager to administer the client Allow the client workstation to administer the server (i.e. access Active Directory Users and Computers, Group Policy, etc.) Enable the client workstation to access Group Policy.

  • 5. Mini Project- A Virtual Network Project Section 3. Project Day 2 Tasks List Server Server name: Domain name: Server IP Address: Server Subnet Mask: Server Gateway: Install and Configure Internet Information Services to enable hosting of websites Ensure that each user’s webspace is using their network shared folder (on client computers, the personal network drive). Ensure that each user’s webspace is secure according to their active directory credentials Create a new DNS alias for the web server (i.e. www.yourdomain.local, web.yourdomain.local) Create a new security certificate for your web server Client Client name: Domain name: Client IP Address: Client Subnet Mask: Client Gateway: Enable users to login to the system (mini1 -> mini5) Enable manager to login to the system Enable each user to have access to their mapped network drive to create and edit their webpages Each users must then be able to browse their website through the web server Configure the Group Policy to restrict user’s access to a few control panel icons Configure the Group Policy to change the workstation’s background to a common image Finally, create a simple script that schedule the client and server to shut down.
