The following are samples of what is achievable in the lab environment:
- Configure DNS for Active Directory: This is one the most crucial services required to run AD, so having a solid understanding of it is vital for any existing or new domain administrators. Using the exercises and your Real LIVE Practice-Labs servers you will configure DNS server settings, create / manage zones including zone transfers and replication all of which are fundamental to maintaining a sound DNS infrastructure.
- Configure Active Directory infrastructure: Getting the right foundations in place is important for any AD environment. Using the lab you will be able to build your forests or domains from scratch understanding each component that is required to build these out. Once your new forest/domain are in place you can start to configure the other supporting services such as sites, AD replication and trusts.
- Active Directory Roles and Services: Active Directory has a number of additional roles and service that can be deployed if the specific need arises. Although some of these are not very common the Real LIVE Practice-Lab is the ideal place to install, test and understand them before moving them into your corporate environment. These services include Active Directory Lightweight Directory Service (AD LDS), Active Directory Rights Management Service (AD RMS), read-only domain controllers (RODC) and Active Directory Federation Services (AD FSv2).
- Create and maintain Active Directory objects: These are the key daily functions that most domain administrators carry out. These range from creating and applying Group Policy objects (GPOs) or templates to creating and maintaining Active Directory accounts either manually or by automation. These tasks are fundamental to the smooth operation of you AD infrastructure so use your Real LIVE Practice-Lab to know them inside out.
- AD management: Your Active Directory Directory Services are only as good as the management they receive. Make sure you know how to monitor Active Directory and ensure you have the ability to recover from a catastrophic failure in the form of a good backup and recovery procedure. Also if required understand how to perform offline maintenance to the database, this is not something to take lightly but having a safe place to practice in will stand you in good stead if you have to do this.
- Active Directory Certificate Services: If you have the need to run an internal CA in your organisation then getting familiar with Active Directory Certificate Services is important. Use your Real LIVE Practice-Lab to configure CA server settings, manage certificate templates and enrolments/revocations.
