Windows Network Services Proposal


Each student will create a detailed, organized, unified technical solution given the scenario

described below. The submission will be in a written format, with at least one diagram, and may

include additional diagrams, charts or tables. The assignment is meant for students to enhance

their mastery of the material and to provide a creative and realistic way in which to apply

knowledge from this course.


Global Advertising, Inc. (referred to as “GAI”) has hired you as an IT consultant for their

Windows network services infrastructure. GAI is a new advertising firm, and they have hired

staff, are established in two locations, and have a need to get their internal IT services

configured. They have IT staff, but they do not have the in-house expertise to address their

current infrastructure needs.

You are required to supply GAI with a solution which addresses the integration and

configuration of their Active Directory updates. Cost is not a significant concern – GAI wishes

to implement the “right” solution to address their acquisition of a new company and its Active

Directory forest which is comprised of a single domain. More specifically, GAI is based out of

Houston, TX and they have a Windows Server 2012 domain that is operating at the Windows

Server 2012 functional level. They recently acquired Media Guru Group which is based out of

Richmond, VA, which has a domain (running Windows Server 2008 domain controllers)

operating at the Windows Server 2003 functional level.

There are several details about GAI which will have an impact on your proposal:

  • GAI has restructured their organization they have a total of 110 employees in their

Houston and Richmond sites. Each location in the following departments:

  •  GAI will have two sites, one in Houston, TX, and one in Richmond, VA.
  •  Executives (9 total with 5 in Houston, 4 in Richmond) – manage and run the company
  •  Accounts and Sales Department (30 employees with 15 in Houston and 15 in Richmond)

– perform market research and maintain accounts

  •  Creative, Media and Production Department (49 employees in Houston) – advertising
  •  Human Resources and Finances (12 employees in Houston) – perform HR and financial


  •  IT (10 employees with 5 in Houston and 5 in Richmond) – manage IT for the company
  •  Networking equipment is already in place for both sites, which are separate Active

Directory Domains.

  •  Security mechanisms (e.g., firewalls, intrusion detection) will be handled separately, and

there is no need to describe them.

 Some departments will want their data to remain private from other departments (e.g.,

Finances personnel will not want Production staff to see the company’s financial details).

Your team may make assumptions about how data should be shared or kept private.

  •  Assumptions can be made regarding any information not included here; all assumptions

should be identified, however.
