LAN Operating Systems Scenarios
Read the three scenarios below, then answer the questions that follow each scenario.
1. You are the network administrator for a new company that has 10 users and plans to add five more users within a year. The files need to be accessed by all 10 users and each user must have different security rights. What kind of network would you install and how would the pieces and components of this network relate to each other? Define each component. In this type of application a client/server network is required to accomplish this application. With this the system uses a server that holds the company’s information which an administrator can access and give rights and permission to other user to access. Through this server hub employees can speak to one another with E-mails, electronic mail, and keep each other in the loop when working on projects together. This will also help to speed up the production time in that a group will not have to wait for answers from a person out of town or state. With the use of a file server, which manages user access to files stored on the server, each employee can use the system to complete tasks and follow projects to their completion. We will need to set up the system with an Active Directory (AD) system as well as a Microsoft Exchange to provide e-mail services. Once all the tools are in place we can set up an Enterpise, which is a system that a larger company that uses large amounts of computers can employ because it consists of multiple LAN, local area network. With the system we will need to use a router system that can be expandable. Most computers can be hardwired to the router using Cat5 or Cat6 wire that is ran directly to the router. There can also be wireless access, with security on it, for employees to use with laptops or IP phones.
2. You are the network administrator for a company that has a peer-to-peer network. How would the pieces and...
