Sample System Management Assignment

Assignment Description

Form a group of three students and inform your laboratory tutor of the names and student IDs of your group

members. Choose one (1) scenario given in the list below as your assignment topic. Assume that your group

has been hired by the client company to develop a networked system for their required services as described

in your chosen scenario. Your task in this assignment is to (i) analyse client requirements, (ii) design the

solutions, (iii) implement, configure, and troubleshoot implemented solutions, and finally, (iv) prepare a

system documentation report meeting the client requirements and following a standard industry template.

Detailed requirements are provided below:

1. For your chosen scenario, (i) analyse client requirements, (ii) identify and propose the required servers

and server roles (services), and (iii) provide required configurations for your chosen scenario.

2. Perform the configurations using either virtually or physically installed server OS for your chosen

scenario. Students can use Windows Server 2008 or a higher version, or Linux server if appropriate, which

will depend on the scenario chosen. Your submission should include screenshots of each important step.

3. Prepare a detailed system documentation report to record your work done in steps 1 and 2 above, using

a standard template. You have the freedom to create a template, with company name, logo, etc., for

your client and use that for your documentation report. This report will serve as an important part of

backup and disaster recovery documentation for the organisation in your chosen scenario, and can be

used for training new IT staff in the organisation. As such, you must consider human usability factors and

include the configurations using a description of each important step, and screenshots corresponding to

those in a way that will be useful to the target users of the document. Essential sections that must be

included in the documentation are provided in the marking guide, however, you can include additional

sections if deemed useful.

You must configure the domain(s) using group members’ names (e.g., sajeen-joy-sam). If the chosen

scenario requires a web server, the group must create a simple webpage (using html header tag only) to

display the company’s name, and student ID numbers of the group members; this page needs to be

stored on and displayed from the created web server.

This documentation report (one report per group) is to be submitted on Moodle in Week-11.

4. Use your configured system to demonstrate individually your understanding of the implemented

scenario during your week-12 laboratory class.

Scenarios (Choose one scenario for your group to work on):

Scenario 1: Local Area Network (LAN) to support Windows Server and Client Environment

CharlieChocolates is a renowned chocolate manufacturing business requiring the setting up of a LAN

for their office located in east Perth. They have four departments: Inventory, Marketing, Sales, and

Accounting. All objects (e.g., users, computers, etc.) belonging to these departments need to be created within

their respective Organisational Unit (OU) for their own department. CharlieChocolates requires the

following LAN services:

1) Centralised user authentication

2) Print server for users

3) All computers should acquire the IP addresses automatically from a server

4) Hosting of their own website using their own server

 

 

5) The company wants to store all the files on a separate file server and only users with appropriate

access will be able to access them (not every user should have access to the files). You can assume

which users/groups will have access to these files, and state your assumption clearly.

Scenario 2: Local Area Network (LAN) to support Windows Server with multiple domains

TechGuru is an IT consulting company needing to setup a LAN for their main office which is located in

Melbourne. They have three different departments named Operations, Consultants, and Marketing. All

objects (e.g., users, computers, etc.) belonging to those departments should have their own Organisational

Unit (OU). The clients require the following technologies to be implemented within their LAN:

1. Two different domains. One is allocated for the administrator and the other is allocated for everyone

else (users)

2. Centralised user authentication for different domains

3. All computers should acquire their IP addresses automatically from a server

4. The Company should host a website from their own server

5. Your configuration should reflect the above criteria and display different privileges assigned to the

different domains’ users belonging to these domains.

Scenario 3: Local Area Network (LAN) to support Windows Sever and Linux Client Environment

With the growing base of users of Linux, MacroSoft Software, a software development company which

was planning to create a Windows server based LAN decided to also support Linux clients to authenticate using

the Active Directory. The company has three different departments named Operations, Finance and

Marketing. All objects (e.g., users, computers, etc.) belonging to these departments should have their own

different OU. The clients require the following technologies to be implemented within their LAN:

1. The company requires a centralised user authentication support for Linux clients

2. All computers should acquire IP addresses from a server

3. The company should host a website through their own server

4. There should be hardware virtualisation platform

Scenario 4: Setting up technology/features for Linux Server and Windows Client Environment

Adventura, a Sydney-based new company is looking at setting up a LAN for their office. They have three

different departments named General, Finance, and Marketing. All objects (e.g., users, computers, etc.)

belonging to these departments should have their own different OU. The users require the following

technologies to be implemented within their LAN:

1. The client wants to use the Linux operating system as a server side operating system with the

LDAP/SAMBA service to communicate between windows client machines and a Linux server

2. Centralised user authentication for Windows clients

3. The company wants to store all the files on a separate file server and only users with appropriate

access will be able to access them (not every user should have access to the files). You can assume

which users/groups will have access to these files; state your assumptions clearly, as well as configure

accordingly.
