Network Analysis

By mfaisal_i ·
Actually my questions related to the concepts of network analysis BEFORE IMPLEMENTING a network to an organization;

1-how can we analyze that we put 2 or 4 processors Domain controller.

2-how do we know that we require X amount of backup domain controllers.

3-how do we analyze what operating system will be best applicable to our designed network.

4-how do we analyze what level of security we have to implement.

well, some how you know that what i mean to say. I want all the answers relates to network analysis, how do we analysis a network before implementing into an organization regardless of that organization is full of technical or nontechnical personnels.

General rules of thumb forthe numbers of domain controllers in a single domain. Overall you want a minimum of two domain controllers per domain. If you have more than one physical location you will want at least one DC per site unless you have a VERY reliable datacom link with adequate speed to support logon traffic).

For specific hardware requirements look for the ADSizer app on the MS web site and play with it.

As to which Windows OS to use, go with WIndows 2003. It has tighter security and a better implementation of Active Directory than Windows 2000
