Title: Progress of the DESY Windows Project - Building a new domain with Windows 2003 Server


1
Progress of the DESY Windows Project - Building a
new domain with Windows 2003 Server
  • Reinhard Baltrusch,
  • DESY IT

2
Situation
  • The project starts in march 2002 with the goal to
    build a new, active directory based Windows
    domain for DESY.
  • In the first phase a sitespreading test
    environment with Windows 2000 was installed and
    filled with life (win2k.desy.de).
  • Meanwhile Windows XP has become the preferred
    client operating-system for administration. But
    we have seen always some conflicts between
    Windows 2000 and XP (e.g. policies !) and
    restrictions of Windows 2000 (e.g. Dfs).
  • Since 24. April Windows Server 2003 (.NET) is
    available and we have seen in preceding tests
    with the RC2 that many problems are solved. New
    features make the life easier and there is no
    need to spend time for later migration.
  • So we decided to avoid the deployment of Windows
    2000 and go forward with Windows Server 2003 and
    Windows XP SP1.
  • By now new hardware is waiting to start in the
    next phase of the project Construct the real
    production environment for the domain win.desy.de.

Useful Windows Server 2003 features
  • Group Policy Management Console (GPMC)
  • Volume Shadow Copy Services / Shadow Copy Client
  • Automated System Recovery (ASR)
  • Dfs (enhanced, more then one root possible)
  • RIS (advanced, server OS also supported)
  • Schema management (deactivate/activate classes
    and attributes)
  • inetOrgPerson object class built-in (in W2K
    extension)
  • Metadirectory support (enterprise edition)
  • Better support for migration of NT4
  • (ADMT, e.g. password migration)
  • CHKDSK Performance (over 20 faster than W2k)
  • Windows Sharepoint Services (later update for
    W2K3, beta)
  • Rename domain

Hardware for the new DESY domain
  • Available
  • 3 HP/Compaq Proliant DL380 G3
  • as Domaincontroller (computer centre, machine
    controls in Hamburg, computer centre in Zeuthen).

7
Hardware for the new DESY domain (II)
  • 4 HP/Compaq Proliant DL360 G3
  • for several services (like Web, SUS,
    Transaction, NetInstall)

8
Hardware for the new DESY domain (III)
  • 1 Compaq/HP Proliant DL380 G2 Packaged Cluster
    with StorageWorks Array for RIS, DFS and other
    fileservices.

9
Hardware for the new DESY domain (IV)
  • Not delivered jet
  • Storage system for homedirectories in Hamburg
  • HP StorageWorks MSA1000 with 4 HP blade server
  • (6 TB für win.desy.de and DESYNT)
  • Storage system for homedirectories in Zeuthen
  • HP StorageWorks MSA1000 with HP DL380 cluster
  • (1 TB für win.desy.de, expandable)

General build up plan
  • After installing three domain controller the
    replication behavior and the DDNS functionality
    (site spreading) must be smooth before going
    ahead !
  • In the test domain proofed services, tools and
    scripts will be integrated in the production
    domain. The basic Active Directory structure
    (namespace container) with delegation and basic
    grouppolicies will be inserted.
  • In first step we are looking for max. 500 test
    users, who should try to do there normal work on
    XP clients configured for the domain.
  • But the reservation is to install the domain a
    second time if something is going absolutly wrong
    in this test phase of the production domain.
    Otherwise necessary improvements will be made on
    the services, structure, policies and security.
  • If all is running in a good way further services
    and users will be migrated.

Basic services in the new Windows domain at the
beginning
  • Homedirectory, quota management (native) and
    backup inclusiv (TSM, TSM-Client V. 5.16 is ready
    for Windows Server 2003).
  • Dfs (active directory integrated and standalone)
    - the homedirectory path in the user profile will
    be a Dfs link.
  • Remote Installation Service for basic OS
    installation.
  • Usage of the Software Update Service from the
    beginning (Windows update push mode).
  • Application provision over grouppolicies and
    later over NetInstall.
  • Deployment of McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 7.0
    (one version for server and workstation), update
    over the AutoUpdate Architect.
  • Mail and printing is at first functional over the
    old domain.
