1. List some of the uses (roles) of a member server.
File server, application server, and web server. They can manage emails, provide web services, provide file storage, etc.
2. Discuss some differences between workstation software and server software. Workstations are generally used by a single person whereas servers provide services over a network to multiple computers. Workstation are typically used for CPU tasks and simulation projects, unlike servers which are mainly used for data storage, to run databases and organize data, DNS, and to host web pages.
3. List some advantages of mapping a directory located on a server to a workstation.
4. Discuss how you would add new users and groups to your server. Include a discussion of the permissions that you would need to consider in doing so. Next to the Control Panel link choose the Active Directory Users and Computers. Then expand the domain you want to create the user in and right click the user’s folder; select new user and put the information required into the textboxes; by right clicking this folder you can also add groups. To give users permissions right click the database and choose properties then select permissions, if the user you want to grant permission to is not on the list you can search and select their name and then check the permission you want to grant them. Some permissions that a user might need are: read, write, read and execute, list folder contents, modify, etc.
Server Lab 2
1) When you promoted your server to domain controller and installed DHCP, what would happen if there was another domain controller already on this network?
2) How has your file server been affected by promoting your server to a domain controller?
3) We set the DHCP server to provide a narrow range of IP addresses. What is the maximum range that it can provide? What would be the starting and ending addresses if this full range were utilized?
