1.0 Introduction
Windows Server 2003 AD: is a central component of the Windows platform, Active Directory directory service provides the means to manage the identities and relationships that make up network environments. Windows Server 2003 makes Active Directory simpler to manage, easing migration and deployment. It’s now been replaced with Windows Server 2008. Active directory has been around since the release of Windows 2000 several years ago, and is now a standard sight in many offices. Its inclusion marked a radical change at the heart of the Windows Server platform, one that people are still adjusting to today. In this hands-on training session Exchange Server 2003 has been installed on Widows server 2003 for our messaging solutions. You have the option to install Windows Server 2008 with Exchange Server 2007 for your lab training sessions. Finally, we’ll use the clean install Windows server to install Alfresco Community Edition 3.3g for your Web Content Management.

Alfresco is the Open Source Alternative for Enterprise Content Management (ECM), providing Document Management, Collaboration, Records Management, Knowledge Management, Web Content Management and Imaging. Alfresco reduces your ECM costs by up to 96% compared to proprietary systems like Documentum, Open Text and SharePoint. It's as simple to use as a shared drive or SharePoint and does not lock you business in to a proprietary stack.

Alfresco (Community Edition 3.3g) has now implementation for Google Docs™ integration, that makes, use of Google Docs™ seem more natural than the use of traditional desktop applications. The increasing market demand for and adoption of Alfresco and Google Docs™ has made an intersection of the two solutions immanent. True to the character of the company and culture of the community, Alfresco recognized the need, identified the value, and delivered a solution with great success.

Hands-on Labs Training: - In this Hands-on Lab session, you’ll learn how to setup virtual network on VMware (you may also use any other virtual machines like MS VirtualPC, Linux Xen, or VirtualBox from Oracle). In this lab session, we’ll concentrate on installing Alfresco on a clean install Windows Server 2003 AD DC. You will learn how to DNS server for your AD solutions. I’ll also show you how to setup static IP address which is required for deploying a DNS server. Finally, we’ll go through a step-by-step process to install Alfresco Community 3.3 Edition on our Windows server 2003 AD. Next, you’ll learn how to integrate Google Docs™ with Alfresco to deploy documents for anywhere anytime access. You’ll also have opportunity to do some assignment at the end of the lab session. Upon completion of this hands-on lab you’ll have gained a competency level and a capability to be able to plan design implement and deploy ECM solution using Alfresco on Windows Server as desired.
