Task 1
File and print share service in Windows Server 2012
A file share service in Windows Server is to provide the location for the shared computer
files like documents and databases that can be accessed by the workplaces attached to the
network. it allows the storage and retrieval of the information and sharing with others who
are connected to the network. The file share service benefit is that is allows the central usage
of hard disks and the state drives thereby increasing the server storage performance which is
also cost effective (Tulloch & Team, 2013).
A printer share service is to enable the management of the print job to the shared printers in
the organization network (Finn, Lownds, Luescher, & Flynn, 2013). The print share service
benefits include:
i. The print sharing allows the management of printer drivers to be in a centralized
manner.
ii. It provides ease in the migration of printers since user can move from one place to
another over time.
iii. The printers can easily manage jobs in the queue that has been sent to it.
Task 2
Features of Active Directory
Active directory comprises of different services that execute in the Windows Server in order
to control authorizations and access to the resources that are networked. The active Directory
has features which include; virtualization, dynamic access control, customizes audit policies,
event logs, Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS), Active Directory Recycle bin,
Flexible Authentication Secure Tunneling (FAST) and Active Directory-Based Activation
(ADBA) (Chappell, 2010).
Benefits of:
Master replication
This is a way of replicating database enabling the storage of data by group of computers and
can be updated by any of the group individual. Its benefits are;

a. Accessibility if one master fails another continues to update the database
b. Allows the distributed access to database across the network.
Domain service
a. The resources are centralized
b. The location of resources is easy.
Group policies
a. The locations of all configurations are centralized.
b. The productivity is increased.
c. There is enhanced security.
d. It saves time and cost.
Centralized management
a. It allows creation of manage server and user privileges
b. Provides authentication and security enhancement.
Task 3
The planning process occurs in four steps:
i. Create a forest plan for root domain
In this stage one is reqired to determine the forests for active directory requiredto be
implemented in the organization. Multiple forests that are created in the organization
inreases the cost as it requires several administrators.
ii. Create a domain plan
The number of domains required in the organization must be determined and be carefully
determined. The increase of domains inreases the hardware resources required. Based on
settings for security policy more than one domain will therefore be required.
iii. Create plan for Organizational unit
The plan for number of organizational units that are required is created. This depends of
assigning information and group policy for administration requiring one to make decision on
the accounts of the users that has to be in each units.
iv. Create topology for the site.

In this stage the topology of the network traffic of the organization is planned and needs one
to determine the better physical topology that computers will be connected to provide
maximum operations .
Installation process for Active Directory Domain Services and DNS has the following steps
and resource required (Ezol & Semke,2012):
First, we open Run prompt and type control panel to open the control panel.
Then we choose Network and Internet , select Properties where we will edit the IPv4
Protocol
