Lab Manual
Getting Started
           The Windows 2000 Server title of the Academic Learning series includes two
           books: a textbook and a Lab Manual. The hands-on exercises in the textbook
           should be completed as homework by individual students. The exercises in the
           Lab Manual are designed for classroom use under the supervision of an
           instructor or a lab aide. In an academic setting, the computer classroom is
           commonly used by a variety of classes each day, so you must plan your setup
           procedure accordingly. For example, consider automating the classroom setup
           procedure and using removable fixed disks in the classroom. Use the automated
           setup procedure to rapidly configure the classroom environment, and remove the
           fixed disks after teaching this class each day.
           Instructors often find that students benefit from completing both the classroom-
           based labs (in the Lab Manual) and the homework exercises (in the textbook)
           and then comparing the two. Because the classroom labs and homework
           exercises are similar, students learn by resolving any differences in the tasks. In
           the classroom lab, instructors must be sure to follow the naming conventions and
           configuration procedures exactly as outlined in this document.
           Inform the students that labs in the Lab Manual and the self-study exercises in
           the textbook use drop-down menus to demonstrate how to navigate Microsoft
           Windows. There are rare instances when drop-down menus are not available, and
           in these cases, explicit instructions are provided for using context menus. You
           can activate an object’s context menu by right-clicking (left-clicking if you have
           left hand mouse settings) the object.
           The classroom labs and the textbook exercises use the Windows default double-
           click setting: double-click to open an item (single-click to select). Do not
           configure the computers to use the optional setting: single-click to open an item
           (point to select).


Classroom Setup
           This course should be delivered in a classroom containing networked computers
           where students can develop their skills through hands-on experience with
           Microsoft Windows 2000 Server. Initially, the computers are configured so that
           the instructor computer is the domain controller and each student computer is a
           member server. In Lab 2, each student installs a second copy of Windows 2000
           Server. In Lab 3, each student installs a third copy of Windows 2000 Server
           through an automated installation process. Later in the course, each student
           computer is promoted to a domain controller for a child domain.
           When taught in a classroom environment, this course requires a classroom with
           one computer for the instructor and one computer for each student. It is critical
           that the classroom network be physically isolated from the campus network. This
            provides the instructor with the ability to choose IP addresses and allows the labs
            involving Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to proceed smoothly.
            The hardware and software requirements for the lab are listed below.

                                                                 Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
                      Installing Windows 2000 Server on the instructor
                      computer
                      If your computer has an existing 32-bit operating system installed, start the
                      computer as usual, and insert the Windows 2000 Server installation CD. The
                      Microsoft Windows 2000 CD window opens automatically. In the left pane of
                      the window, click Install Windows 2000 Server. If the Microsoft Windows 2000
                      CD window does not open automatically, run Winnt32.exe, located in the I386
                      folder on the CD. This will launch the Windows 2000 Server Setup program.
                      If your computer has an existing 16-bit operating system installed, start the
                      computer as usual, and insert the Windows 2000 Server installation CD. Run
                      Winnt.exe, located in the I386 folder on the CD. This will launch the Windows
                      2000 Server Setup program.
                      If your computer does not have an operating system installed, you might be able
                      to boot your computer from the Windows 2000 Server installation CD. When
                      you boot from the CD, the Windows 2000 Server Setup program starts
                      automatically.
                      If your computer will not boot from the CD, start your computer with any startup
                      floppy disk that has CD-ROM support. Once you have started the computer and
                      can navigate among the files on the Windows 2000 Server installation CD, run
                      Winnt.exe, located in the I386 folder on the CD. This will launch the Windows
                      2000 Server Setup program.
                      If you don’t have a startup floppy disk with CD-ROM support, you can make a
                      set of four Windows 2000 Server Setup floppy disks. Go to a computer that has
                      an operating system installed, and insert the Windows 2000 Server installation
                      CD. Run Makeboot.exe or Makebt32.exe, located in the Bootdisk folder on the
                      CD. Then return to the computer where you want to install Windows 2000
                      Server, and boot the computer with the first floppy disk in the set. The Windows
                      2000 Server Setup program starts automatically.
                      After Windows 2000 Server Setup is launched, follow the steps below to
                      continue the installation.
                      1.   If you are installing the evaluation version of Windows 2000, a setup
                           notification screen appears, informing you that you are about to install an
                           evaluation version of Windows 2000. If this screen appears, press ENTER to
                           continue. Press ENTER to continue the installation.
                           The Windows 2000 Licensing Agreement screen appears.

                           If another copy of Windows 2000 Server is detected, a Windows 2000
                           Server Setup screen informs you that you may repair the installation.
                      3.   If another copy of Windows 2000 Server is detected, press ESC to continue.
                           The Windows 2000 Server Setup screen appears, prompting you to select
                           an area of free space or an existing partition on which to install Windows
                           2000, create a partition, or delete a partition.

Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
    Warning The fixed disk(s) on the instructor computer will be repartitioned as
    outlined in the table appearing before this procedure. Repartitioning the fixed
    disk(s) will delete existing partitions, and any data stored on the disk(s) will be
    lost.

    4.   If any partitions exist, delete them by pressing the D key and following the
         on-screen instructions. Once the disk(s) contain only unpartitioned space,
         go to the next step.
    5.   Make sure that the unpartitioned space on Disk 0 is selected, and then press
         the C key.
         The Windows 2000 Server Setup screen appears, showing that you’ve
         chosen to create a new partition in the unpartitioned space and informing
         you of the minimum and maximum sizes of the partition you might create.
    6.   Specify the size of the partition you want to create, at least 2000 MB
         (2GB), and then press ENTER to create the partition and continue.

    Important After creating the partition, verify that you have at least 2.5GB of
    unpartitioned space on some fixed disk.

         The Windows 2000 Server Setup screen appears, showing the new partition
         as C: New <Unformatted>.
    7.   Select the unpartitioned space on Disk 0, or if there isn’t at least 2 GB of
         available space on Disk 0, use any other fixed disk in the computer and
         create another partition that is at least 2000 MB (2 GB) in size.
    8.   Verify that at least 500 MB of unpartitioned space is available on some
         fixed disk.
         This space is allocated for demonstrating Disk Manager features later in the
         course.
    9.   Verify that the partition named C: New <Unformatted> is selected, and
         then press ENTER.
         You are prompted to select a file system for the partition.
    10. Verify that Format The Partition Using The NTFS File System is selected,
        and then press ENTER.
         This process will take several minutes. Eventually, the Windows 2000
         Server Setup screen appears and a red status bar counts down for 15
         seconds before the computer restarts.
    11. If there is a floppy disk in the drive, remove it.

    Important If your computer supports booting from the CD, then after Windows
    2000 Setup restarts, the computer might boot from the Windows 2000 Server
    CD, causing the Windows 2000 setup process to start again from the beginning.
    If this happens, remove the CD, and then restart the computer.

         A Windows 2000 Setup message box appears, followed by the Welcome
         To Windows 2000 Server Setup Wizard screen, and the installation
         continues.

                      Warning Repartitioning the fixed disk will delete existing partitions, and any
                      data stored on the disk will be lost.

                      4.   If any partitions exist, delete them by pressing the D key and then following
                           the on-screen instructions. Once the disk(s) contain only unpartitioned
                           space, go to the next step.
                      5.   Make sure that the unpartitioned space on Disk 0 is selected, and then press
                           the C key.
                           The Windows 2000 Server Setup screen appears, showing that you’ve
                           chosen to create a new partition in the unpartitioned space and informing
                           you of the minimum size and maximum size of the partition you will create.
                      6.   Specify the size of the partition you want to create, at least 1500 MB (1.5
                           GB), and then press ENTER to create the partition and continue.

                      Important After creating the partition, verify that you have at least 2.5 GB of
                      unpartitioned space on some fixed disk in the computer.

                           The Windows 2000 Server Setup screen appears, showing the new partition
                           as C: New <Unformatted>.
                      7.   Verify that the new partition named C: New <Unformatted> is selected,

                      2000 Setup restarts, the computer might boot from the Windows 2000 Server
                      installation CD, causing the Windows 2000 setup process to start again from the
                      beginning. If this happens, remove the CD, and then restart the computer.

                           A Windows 2000 Setup message box appears, followed by the Welcome
                           To Windows 2000 Server Setup Wizard screen, and the installation

Lab Manual Exercises and Textbook Practice
Exercises
This table summarizes the differences between the exercises in the Lab Manual and the exercises in
the textbook. Please see the Lab Notes document on this CD for more information about how the
material in the Lab Manual corresponds with material in the textbook.
Chapter 1        Introduction to Microsoft Windows 2000
The classroom lab for this chapter has no corresponding textbook exercise. This lab was created
specifically for the Lab Manual to introduce students to Windows 2000 Server.

Chapter 2        Installing and Configuring Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
This classroom lab is very similar to the textbook exercise. One of the main differences between the
two is that students will be performing a network installation of Windows 2000 Server in the
classroom rather than creating and using Setup diskettes as in the textbook exercise.
Page 70          Creating Windows 2000 Server Setup diskettes. In the textbook exercise, students are
                 instructed to create Setup diskettes. It is not necessary to perform this process in the
                 classroom environment because the diskettes are not used to install Windows 2000
                 Server on the classroom computers. Instead, a network installation is performed.
                 However, this procedure is one of the few procedures within the textbook exercises
                 that are safe to perform in the classroom environment, so you might want to have
                 students create the diskettes on their computers or you might instruct them to create
                 the diskettes in their own practice environments.
Page 79          Adjusting the display settings. In the textbook exercise and the classroom lab,
                 students are instructed to adjust display settings. In the classroom lab, students are
                 also instructed to customize the appearance of the boot menu.

Chapter 3        Unattended Installations of Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
This classroom lab is very similar to the textbook exercise. One of the main differences between the
two is the process of running the unattended setup. This lab and exercise do not affect subsequent labs
and exercises. Neither the classroom lab nor the textbook exercise needs to be completed in order to
complete later labs and exercises.
Page 116         Running an unattended setup of Windows 2000 Server from Computer 2. In the
                 textbook exercise, the student runs the unattended installation from the second
                 computer. In the classroom lab, each student runs the unattended installation on his
                 or her own assigned computer. In either case, the result is the same.



Lab Setup Instructions                                                                                    21
Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
Chapter 4        Microsoft Windows 2000 File Systems
The first step in the classroom lab and textbook exercise is to install FTP. FTP must be installed to
complete subsequent exercises and labs. When installing Windows 2000 components such as FTP, the
installation process in the classroom labs and in the textbook exercises is slightly different. In the
classroom, students add components by connecting to the Instructor01 computer. In the textbook,
students add components by using the Windows 2000 Server CD.
Page 164         Installing FTP. For the textbook exercise, you must have the Windows 2000 Server
                 installation CD available. For the classroom lab, you must use the net use command
                 to make a connection to the Instructor01 computer.
Page 168         Using the Disk Management snap-in. Notice that the disk configuration for the
                 textbook exercise is different than the configuration for the classroom lab. Students
                 should not use classroom conventions for textbook exercises, or textbook
                 conventions for classroom labs. Despite the differences in the two configurations, the
                 lab and the exercise achieve similar results.

Chapter 5        Advanced Files Systems
The classroom lab and textbook exercise are nearly identical except for the folder and share structure
that students will be creating.
Page 223         Creating directories and shares. Notice that the folder and share configuration for
                 the textbook exercise is different than the configuration for the classroom lab.
                 Students should not use classroom conventions for textbook exercises, or textbook
                 conventions for classroom labs. In addition, the textbook exercise uses a second
                 computer for one of its shares, while the classroom lab uses one student computer for
                 all shares. The textbook uses a second computer merely to illustrate how Dfs can
                 span multiple servers. The second computer is not necessary. Despite the differences
                 in the two configurations, the lab and the exercise achieve similar results.
Page 226         Accessing Dfs on Server01. In this textbook exercise, the student must run a .BAT
                 file, which is located on the Student CD. For the classroom lab, students must use a
                 net use command to connect to the Instructor01 computer and then copy a .BAT file
                 to their own computers. Each .BAT file is unique to its own environment. Students
                 should not use the classroom .BAT file for the textbook exercise, and they should not
                 use the textbook .BAT file for the classroom lab.

Chapter 6        Active Directory Services
There are a number of differences between the textbook exercises and the classroom lab. Many of
these differences are a result of the differences in domain structure between the two systems. In the
textbook exercises, each student promotes his or her stand-alone server to the first domain controller
in a new domain. In the classroom lab, each student promotes his or her stand-alone server to the first
domain controller in a new child domain. In addition, the classroom lab instructs students to add a
domain user account to the local domain. This process is not necessary in the textbook exercises.
Page 274         Promoting a stand-alone server to a domain controller. Notice that in the textbook,
                 the first procedure in the first exercise is to promote the stand-alone server to a
                 domain controller. This process includes making the computer a DNS server, which
                 is accomplished in part by using the Windows 2000 Server CD. In the classroom lab,
                 the first procedure in the first exercise is to install DNS, which means connecting to
                 the Instructor01 computer.

                                                                            Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
Page 276         Using Active Directory Manager. The process of using the Active Directory Users
                 and Computers snap-in is slightly different in the textbook exercises than in the
                 classroom lab. Because students in the classroom must create child domains, they can
                 access either the parent domain or child domain in the Active Directory Users and
                 Computers snap-in.
Page 277         Manually configuring IP addressing and joining Server02 to the microsoft.com
                 domain. In the classroom lab, students configure the IP addressing information when
                 setting up DNS. In the textbook exercises, the IP addressing information is set up
                 during a separate process, after the domain controller is configured and Active
                 Directory services is installed. Students should adhere strictly to the IP addressing
                 information that is supplied in the respective sources. Textbook IP addresses should
                 not be used for the classroom labs.
                 Also note that this textbook exercise includes a procedure for joining a second
                 computer to the domain. This procedure is not duplicated in the classroom.
Page 282         Creating a Dfs root replica. Because a Dfs root replica cannot be created on the same
                 server as the Dfs root, this procedure cannot be duplicated in the classroom lab.
                 However, students who have access to practice environments that contain two
                 computers can complete this procedure, assuming that the necessary previous
                 exercises have been completed.
Page 283         Enabling FRS for the Dfs root replica. Because a Dfs root replica cannot be created
                 on the same server as the Dfs root, this procedure cannot be duplicated in the
                 classroom lab. However, students who have access to practice environments that
                 contain two computers can complete this procedure, assuming that the necessary
                 previous exercises have been completed.

Chapter 7        Administering Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
For the most part, the textbook exercises and the classroom lab are very similar. The main difference
between the two is how students log on to their computers. Because the classroom labs incorporate a
parent domain and a child domain, students must be aware of which domain they are logging on to.
This is not a factor with the textbook exercises because there is only one domain.
Page 329         Attempting to log on to Server01 with a user account. Students will not be able to use
                 the Jane Doe account to log on in either the classroom lab or the textbook exercise.
                 However, it is still important that students are attempting to log on to the correct
                 domain when performing this exercise in the classroom.
Page 347         Creating a user profile template. In this procedure, students will be able to use the
                 Jane Doe account to log on in either the classroom lab or the textbook exercise. If
                 students in the classroom cannot log on, verify that they are attempting to log on to
                 the correct domain.
Page 375         Implementing NTFS security. If the student cannot log on as Bob Train (in either the
                 classroom lab or the textbook exercise), verify that the student is logging on during a
                 time when Bob Train is configured to be able to log on.

Chapter 8        Administering Print Services
This classroom lab is very similar to the textbook exercise.

Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
Chapter 9        Network Protocols and Services
Performing the classroom lab is a little more complicated than performing the textbook exercises
because the classroom lab must account for the parent domain/child domain configuration. However,
for the most part, the lab and the exercises achieve similar results.
Page 477         Verifying a computer’s TCP/IP configuration. In the textbook exercises and in the
                 classroom lab, students run the ipconfig utility. Note that the results of running this
                 command in the classroom will be different than the results of running this command
                 when performing the textbook exercises.
Page 478         Configuring TCP/IP to automatically obtain an IP address. This textbook procedure
                 is not included in the classroom lab because a second computer is needed to test the
                 automatic address assignment functionality. The computers that students use in the
                 classroom must be configured with static IP addresses.
Page 492         Reconfiguring TCP/IP to use a static IP address on Server01. This textbook
                 procedure is not included in the classroom lab because the student computers in the
                 classroom have already been configured to use static IP addresses.
Page 493         Determining the physical address of a computer. This textbook procedure instructs
                 the students to obtain a MAC address from the second computer that will be used
                 later in the exercise. This procedure is not included in the classroom lab because the
                 students will not be using the MAC address of a second computer in the classroom
                 environment. Instead, they will be using a MAC address that is provided in the lab.
                 The instructor can have the students perform this procedure from the textbook
                 exercise in the classroom lab so that they can see how a MAC address is obtained,
                 but students must not use the MAC addresses they obtain from their own computers.
                 They must use only the MAC address provided in the lab.
Page 494         Creating and configuring a DHCP scope. In this procedure, in both the textbook
                 exercise and the classroom lab, students are instructed to create and configure a
                 DHCP scope. It is important that students use only those IP addresses that are
                 supplied in the respective procedures. Students should not use the textbook IP
                 addresses in the classroom lab, and they should not use the classroom IP addresses in
                 the textbook exercise.
Page 498         Testing DHCP. This textbook procedure is not included in the classroom lab because
                 a second computer is needed to test DHCP.
Page 512         Testing WINS settings (optional). This textbook procedure is not included in the
                 classroom lab because a second computer is needed to test WINS.

Chapter 10       Routing and Remote Access Service
This classroom lab is very similar to the textbook exercises. The main difference is that students in the
classroom will be unable to configure a dial-up client and access the RRAS server.
Page 584         Configuring a dial-up client and accessing the RRAS server (optional). This textbook
                 procedure is not included in the classroom lab because a second computer is needed
                 to act as a dial-up client, and the system must be able to physically support dial-up
                 networking.
Page 586         Monitoring the remote access connection (optional). This textbook procedure is not
                 included in the classroom lab because the students must complete the previous
                 procedure in order to complete this procedure. The textbook does contain a couple of
                 important screenshots, which might be worth pointing out to students working in the
                 classroom.

                                                                            Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
Chapter 11       Microsoft Windows 2000 Security
There are several differences between the textbook exercises and the classroom lab. Many of these
differences are a result of the differences in domain structure between the two systems. Despite these
differences, the lab and the exercises, for the most part, achieve similar results.
Page 638         Installing Certificate Services and configuring the Certificate Authority. In the
                 textbook exercises, the students create an enterprise root domain, but in the
                 classroom lab, the students create an enterprise subordinate domain. Note that the
                 values typed in the CA Identifying Information screen are different in the classroom
                 lab than in the textbook exercise. Students must type the correct information from the
                 respective procedures. Students should not use classroom values in the textbook
                 exercises, and they should not use textbook values in the classroom lab.
Page 654         Configuring a data recovery policy for the domain. Although this procedure achieves
                 similar results in the textbook exercises and the classroom lab, the textbook exercises
                 use the Certificate Services Enrollment Web page to request a certificate, and the
                 classroom lab uses the Group Policy snap-in.
Page 677         Creating and using the Security Analysis And Configuration snap-in. The procedures
                 in the textbook exercise are very similar to the procedures in the classroom lab. The
                 lab streamlines the process of creating an MMC console, but the results are the same
                 for both approaches.

Chapter 12       Reliability and Availability
This classroom lab is very similar to the textbook exercises. The only significant difference is where
students save the backup file. In the textbook exercises, the backup file is saved to the C: drive. In the
classroom lab, the backup file is saved to the D: drive.

Chapter 13        Monitoring and Optimization
The first classroom lab exercise is very similar to the first textbook exercise. However, the second
classroom lab exercise is not included in the textbook. It has been added to the classroom lab to
provide students with experience in monitoring system performance.

Chapter 14        Microsoft Windows 2000 Application Servers
For the most part, the classroom lab is similar to the textbook exercises. However, because the
classroom uses only one computer per student and the textbook uses two computers per student, the
classroom lab is limited in scope, compared to the textbook exercise. Despite these differences, the lab
and the exercises achieve many of the same results.

                 in. In the classroom lab and the textbook exercise, the student is instructed to record
                 the TCP Port value. The value on the student’s classroom computer will not
                 necessarily be the same as the value on the computer used for the textbook exercises.
                 Students should use the correct TCP Port value for the particular lab or exercise.
                 Students should not use the TCP Port value from the classroom computer in the
                 textbook exercise, and they should not use the TCP Port value from the textbook
                 computer in the classroom lab.

           a single computer. Each student performing the textbook exercise uses a pair of
           computers, the second computer providing remote access to the first. Despite these
           differences, the lab and the exercises achieve similar results.

           performed on two computers. As a result, there are several differences between the
           procedures in the classroom lab and the procedures in the textbook exercises. The
           main difference is that students in the classroom lab cannot test the Terminal
           Services connection between computers. Despite these differences, the lab and the
           exercises achieve similar results.

           computer is needed to establish a terminal session with the first computer.
