The Plan and Configure Namespaces and Client Services 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:

  • Plan, Deploy and Manage Client Access Server (CAS)
  • Implement Network Load Balancing

Exercise 1 - Plan, Deploy and Manage Client Access Server (CAS)

Client Access Services allows connectivity to an Exchange server from a variety of clients - like Outlook, Outlook Web App and Exchange ActiveSync. In this exercise, you will learn how to configure Client Access Servers in PRACTICELABS Exchange organization.

Exercise 2 - Implement Network Load Balancing

Network Load Balancing (NLB) service is a feature included in Windows Server that balances network traffic load sent to the NLB cluster on a TCP/IP network. The NLB cluster is a configuration of multiple virtual IP addresses where network traffic load is balanced among the multiple servers on the cluster. Moreover, load balancers provide built-in redundancy by sensing any device failures on the network and redistributing their load over other devices. Load balancers are normally used to ensure reliable delivery of mission critical web applications like web services to a large user population base.

In this exercise, you will deploy highly available client access servers using Windows Network Load Balancing WNLB.
