MISM 670 Syllabus On-ground/Online – Spring 2011 Instructor: Douglas Blakemore Contact info: FERRIS CONNECT CLASSROOM EMAIL or firstname.lastname@example.org, 1-231-680- 0596 – Google phone number (can also handle text messages) Office Hours: by appointment; either face-to-face, phone, Skype or email. Integrity: Each person is expected to do his/her own work. Any copying, plagiarism or aiding anyone else on copying or plagiarism in projects, the individual's portion of a team project, papers, quizzes and/or tests will mean an automatic failure of that project regardless of the outcome of the students grade for the course. There will be no opportunity to make up the work, or extra credit opportunity given other than what is available (if any) to the entire class. Each paper and/or project has the potential to be submitted to search tools such as turnitin.com to check for plagiarism. Your submission of homework implies your agreement for your homework to be inspected for plagiarism violations. On quizzes and tests, if a person is caught helping another person both will be given a zero for the quiz or test. This syllabus is a work in progress and as such, is subject to change without advance notice if the instructor determines it is necessary. However, all attempts will be made never to make changes – especially in adding extra work beyond what is listed in this syllabus. NOTE: There is no guarantee going into this class that you will receive any particular grade. If you are expecting to get a good grade out of this course it will be much easier to put in significant effort during the class to get a good grade than it will be to beg for more time and/or redoing poor quality work over again after the course is over or after an assignment is due.

ASSIGNMENT 2 DUE – End of week 7 Project 1 (done in class on the first face-to-face meeting) Project Definition: The goal of this project is to : Connectivity – Connecting Servers to routers, switches and access points Make your own networking cable with an RJ-45 connector on each end Installing and/or configuring a network sharing service Configure your computer for a network printer.

Install virtual box (or other virtual application for hosting virtual computers) Understand sharing of other resources. Project 2 (done in-class during the second Saturday session) Project Definition: The goal of this project is to experience hands on Linux Server based networking by: Installing and/or configuring the TCP/IP protocol on the server Configuring a DHCP server Configuring Samba for sharing a directory with various rights Configuring the server for user logins Creating 5 groups for different departments using appropriate naming conventions (see below) Creating at least 5 different users for each group created in step 5 using appropriate naming conventions (see below) USER AND GROUP INFORMATION TO BE USED IN PROJECT 2 and PROJECT 3 Accounting users: Mary Baker, Sam Sneed, Hector Jiminez, Bonnie Williams, Linda Chattaway Management users: Fred Laytham, Hannah Barns, William Lopez, Anna Chung, Vivian Ritchke Tech support users: Carl Tatum, Zach Goodard, Tabitha Wainright, Steve Jones, Andy Rorke Sales users: Harry Williams, Bob Thompson, Bill Baker, Tom Bush, Angela Long Shipping users: Monica Laddy, Heather Haines, Thomas Grindlar, Steve Holmes, Jim Kirk Project 3 (done in class on the second weekend) Project Definition: The goal of this project is to experience hands on Server based networking by: 1. Installing Windows server software 2. Installing and/or configuring the TCP/IP protocol on the server 3. Installing and/or configuring a network card driver on the server 4. Installing and/or configuring a client for Server-based networking on a workstation. 5. Configuring a DHCP server 5. Configuring the server for user logins 6. Creating 5 groups using an appropriate naming convention. See above for list 7. Creating at least 5 different users for each group using an appropriate naming convention. See above for list Assignment 1 Assignment Definition: The goal of this project is to extend the learning in projects 2 and 3 (no hands on). Design (draw) a local area network for a company whose building is at least 3 stories tall. There are at least 60 workstations, 7 servers in a building with at least 12 rooms. - The ground floor is going to be connected via WIRELESS connection - The rest of the floors are connected via WIRED connections with the option for handling wireless connections on all floors to accommodate personal computers, smart phones and/or guests with their own equipment. In your design, identify the location (including distances – right on the drawing) of: The servers Each workstation Each switch, hub and/or router and/or access point Wiring diagram (show the path the wires are to take to the equipment). Your building will be connected to the Internet, make sure and include it in your drawing as well as any security to be included in the design. Create a narrative of your drawing identifying make, model, specifications, price of each of your components. In the price of cabling, include prices of cable trays for running the cables above the ceiling tile of each floor. Give the specifications of the server, switches, hubs, routers and wiring used Show all Servers and ALL cable runs. Part 2: Discuss (no need to draw any of this part) what would need to be added to be able to connect securely to an identical building 200 miles away that would have approximately the same configuration. What equipment would be added to your design to accommodate this? Software for creating the drawing: You can choose from a wide range of software programs for doing the drawing including doing it by hand. If using software, make sure and imbed the finished product into the Word document and/or if possible export your drawing to a PDF format to ensure that I will be able to read it. Include cover page and table of contents All work needs to be submitted in one document if possible – whatever you use to draw your network, it needs to be submitted to me in either .doc or .docx or pdf format. Assignment 2 The goal of this project is to critically analyze operating system strengths and weaknesses through hands on and secondary research. Write a paper evaluating the uses of a particular server operating system in a business environment (Windows 2008; Vista; Linux; AS400; Unix or Mac). Give specifications, market use, potential market use; scalability etc. Minimum page length is 8 to 10 pages not counting cover page, reference page, table of contents etc). Include research with various server functions such as user management, web management, file management, database management, security, scalability, etc.
