ACTIVITY 2

NAME: ORPILLA, Raph Derreck V.


Title of the Exercise :
Implementing security procedures and user access policies in Windows Server Active Directory.

Date of the Exercise : August 16, 2014


OBJECTIVE (AIM) OF THE EXPERIMENT
As a procedure in securing a network and as part in the security policy and manual for the
implementation of Information Security, each student should be able to know and exposed on
how to implement user access configurations in a Windows Active Directory service. As shown
in a demo during the laboratory class.


FACILITIES REQUIRED AND PROCEDURE

Required Tools/Equipment/Software:
- Laptop
- VMWare with installed Windows Server machine
- Projector for on screen demo

PROCEDURE:
STATE in this box the procedure and process of setting up and configuring a Windows Server Active
Directory.
1. How to add an Active Directory role in a freshly installed Windows Server.

In order to install different roles on a Windows server, you need to go to the Server Manager utility. This
is now command central for all of the server management, according to what Microsoft wants you to
think. The Server Manager allows you to install, remove, and view the currently installed roles for the
server you are working on.

The Server Manager is one of the Administrative Tools, so you can access it through the Start button
menu or you can access it through Control Panel. When you launch Server Manager you will find more
than just roles, as this is a tool that allows you to manage much of the server. As you can see in Figure 1,
Server Manager allows you to access various other tools and aspects of the server.

Figure 1: Server Manager for Windows Server 2008

As you can see in Figure 1, there are many roles installed on this Windows Server. One of which is the
Active Directory Domain Services role. This role, when installed, makes the server a domain controller
for an Active Directory domain. When the role is installed it will make significant modifications to the
server to increase the security and management of the server.

2. How to add a computer in the domain

.Make sure your domain Ethernet cable is plugged in
.First click start
.Right click computer
.Left click properties
.Scroll down too "Computer Name, Domain, and workgroup settings.
.Click "Change Settings"
.On the Computer name tab, click the Change button
.Under "member of" Click domain rather than work group.
.Type in the name of your domain.
.Restart


3. How to configure the domain Windows Server and on a Windows 7 client computer

To configure a client computer for automatic domain time synchronization
Open a Command Prompt.
Type the following command and then press ENTER:
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update
Type the following command and then press ENTER:
net stop w32time
Type the following command and then press ENTER:
net start w32time

RESULT:

What is the result of the configuration, what does it do to the network?
What will happen to the network if there is an Active Directory in the server where it is connected?
How Active Directory can implement information security in a certain network?
