Implementing Physical Structure of Active Directory

Implementing the physical structure of Active Directory

Now that you know the physical structure of Active Directory(tm) , you need to learn how to implement it. Implementation involves creating your Active Directory sites and subnets, moving server objects that represent domain controllers into the appropriate site, and creating site links and connection objects so that replication of the Active Directory database can take place between sites. You may also want to create additional Global Catalog servers to aid in logon authentication and directory searches/queries. In this module, you will learn the skills needed to perform these tasks:
  1. Create sites
  2. Create subnets
  3. Move server objects between sites
  4. Create site links
  5. Create connection objects to override the default replication topology
  6. Create a global server catalog
In the next lesson, you willl learn how to create a site.
