Overview

Introduction

The Configure Domain Controllers module provides you with the instruction and server hardware to develop your hands on skills in the defined topics. This module includes the following exercises:

  • Installing a Read-Only Domain Controller
  • Configure Password Replication Group
  • Transfer and Seize Operations Master Roles
  • Configure Universal Group Membership Caching

Exercise 1 - Installing a Read-Only Domain Controller

In this exercise, you will install and configure Read-Only Domain Controller. For organisations that maintain a remote site where IT support personnel is not available to maintain the server, an RODC may be a viable option for ensuring that user logons will be validated in the local network. An RODC server must have a reliable connection to a writeable domain controller to keep it

Exercise 2 - Configure Password Replication Group

For the next exercise, you will create a group that will manage password replication to the remote office RODC server (PLABDM01).

Exercise 3 - Transfer and Seize Operations Master Roles

In this exercise, you will learn how to transfer and seize Flexible Single Master Operations (FSMO) roles between domain controllers in a Windows Active Directory domain.

Exercise 4 - Configure Universal Group Membership Caching

In a large enterprise Active Directory network spanning multiple sites or domains and connected by slow unreliable links there are a number options that administrators can utilize to make user logons efficient. One of them is the use universal group membership caching.

Universal groups normally maintains static group membership. Any change on the membership on the said group will call for replication of the change to the entire Windows AD forest. When a member of a universal group signs on from a remote site connected by slow links his group membership may not get resolved in a timely manner. Administrators can utilize universal group membership caching to make the user logons faster.
