MAINTAIN AND ORGANIZE YOUR NETWORK
Why is it important to learn
An individual who is responsible for the
maintenance of computer hardware and software
systems that make up a computer network
including the maintenance and monitoring of
active data network or converged infrastructure
and related network equipment.
So, DHCP is
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a
standardized networking protocol used on Internet Protocol
(IP) networks for dynamically distributing network
configuration parameters, such as IP addresses and services.
Ways to Implement
Reserve a range of IP for DHCP and each client computer
on LAN request IP from DHCP server.
DHCP automatically assigns the IP address to a requesting
client from the range defined by administrator.
DHCP allocates IP based on predefined mapping
based on their MAC address.
Active Directory (AD) is a directory service that Microsoft developed for
Windows domain networks and is included in most Windows Server operating
systems as a set of processes and services. An AD domain controller
authenticates and authorizes all users and computers in a Windows domain
type network—assigning and enforcing security policies for all computers and
installing or updating software.
Anatomy of ADC
Every single entity in a domain is
considered as object. It can be

Every single sub-division in forest is
considered as domain. Say, a
corporate house has three

A read-only domain controller (RODC) is a server that
hosts an Active Directory database's read-only partitions
and responds to security authentication requests.
An RODC is designed primarily to be deployed in a
branch office environment.
Branch offices typically have relatively few users, poor physical
security, relatively poor network bandwidth to a hub site, and little
local IT knowledge.
Needs at least one writable domain controller running
windows server 2008 or higher.
Tools which are essential for
To connect to a remote computer, that computer must be turned on, it must
have a network connection, Remote Desktop must be enabled, you must have
network access to the remote computer (this could be through the Internet), and
you must have permission to connect.
You must follow this,

What is Group Policy
Group Policy is a feature of the Microsoft Windows NT family of
operating systems that control the working environment of user
accounts and computer accounts.
Group Policies are a really powerful way to setup a corporate network
with each of the computers locked down so users can’t mess them up
with unwanted changes, and stop them from running unapproved
software, among many other uses.
In the home environment, however, you probably won’t want to set
password length restrictions or force yourself to change your password.
And you probably won’t need to lock down your machines to only run
specific approved executable.
Group Policy is categorized in, Common Configuration and User
