Perform the following tasks to support this. Responses to all tasks (including screenshots) should be saved to a document named xxx_assessment3.docx (where xxx is your student ID). Ensure that all responses are in your own words and references are provided.Task 1 You have already conducted your research, consulted with the client and made the decision that Windows Server 2019 will satisfy the needs of the company.  You are to install Windows Server 2019 Datacenter and Windows 10 on Oracle Virtual Box and set the Administrator account password to Password1.  You are to take screenshots of installation process (at least three screenshots of your choice during installation) Task 2 From your research you have determined that the company’s concerns can be overcome by installing Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS).  List and explain at least four advantages of domain-based environment over workgroup environment.Information System InfrastructureAssessment: Operating system reportDue Date - 01/07/2022; 11:59 AMTask 3 You are planning to install Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). Answer the following:  List the prerequisites for installing Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS).  Provide reasonable justification/s why these prerequisites are required. Task 4 You need to Install and configure Active Directory Domain Service (use installation options as detailed below) on your Windows Server 2019 based on the following: Computer Name: MHDC1 IP Address: 192.168.1.10 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Gateway: N/A Preferred DNS Server: 192.168.1.10 Domain Name: mh.com.au On Windows Server 2019 Virtual Machine (computer name MHDC1). Take screenshots for the following: o Installation steps for active directory (at least three screenshots of your choice during installation) o TCP/IP configuration clearly showing IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, and Primary DNS. o System properties clearly showing computer name and Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN).Task 5 In Windows Server 2019 log on with the Administrator account and use the Active Directory Administrative Centre or Active Directory Users and Groups to complete the following tasks:  Create two groups: Accounts and Finance.  Create and configure two user accounts for Tom Davies and Julie Mann as follows: o Set password as Password2 for both user accounts. o Set Password never expires option for both user accounts. o Set the SamAccountName for Tom Davies as mh\tdavies and add as a member of the Accounts group (as the primary group) and remove from the Domain Usersgroup.o Set the SamAccountName for Julie Mann as mh\jmann and add as a member of the Finance group (as the Primary Group) and remove from the Domain Usersgroup.  Provide three screenshots (as listed below) as evidence of completion of this task: o A screenshot for the Active Directory Administrative Centre interface which shows the two newly created groups and two user accounts. o A screenshot for the properties of Tom Davies’ user account that:  Shows the username configuration  Shows the user account only belonging to the Accounts group. o A screenshot for the properties of Julie Mann’s user account that:  Shows the username configuration  Shows the user account only belonging to the Finance group Task 6 In Windows Server 2019 log on with the Administrator account and create a new folder called “Client Data” in “X” drive, and then create or save some text files to this folder. You must configure both the share and NTFS permissions to control access as follows:  Share the Data folder with the Accounts group on the network. All the users in the Accounts group should have all permissions to the shared folder.  Share the Data folder with the Finance group. All the users in the Finance group should be able to view and open files in the shared folder.  No other groups or users should be allowed access (either over the network or locally).

OPERATING SYSTEM REPORT
Task 1 :
Task 2: The advantages are listed below:
Easy to manage and control
Because servers are installed on a domain-based environment and these servers give comprehensive controls such as computer software upgrades, to regulate access to computers, managing and controlling a domain-based environment is simple
and straightforward. By using a domain, administrators are able to make changes to the network more quickly by utilizing servers. These modifications may include access control lists and permissions. On any of the locally based PCs, updates and adjustments may be done with relative ease. Although the Team-based facility does not deliver these services adequately since no dedicated computer is accessible in the working group to oversee and control all the performance of other machines.
Tens of thousands of personal PCs
Domain-based location allows access to and control over thousands of machines in the network, and servers may supply all of the resources required by any computer connected to the network. As a consequence of this, the domain-based environment has a future and will contribute to the continued growth of networks in the future. On the other hand, the group of people working on the project does not support several computers. As a result, the location-based organisation does not endorse the continuation of the network's growth in the future. ("The Purpose of Workgroups Compared to Domains", 2022)
Different rules apply to local networks
Additionally supporting computer performance on diverse local networks is the domain-based environment. This means that computers on various local networks may utilize server resources in a domain-based environment, which is safe and secure. In a peer-to-peer network, computers are linked to one another for collaboration purposes. A control computer is not present in the group-based group.
("AD server vs. Domain Controller vs. Member Server , et al.", 2022)
Resources that have been split up (Distributed Resources)
The domain-based environment allows distributed resources, where the server may deliver a number of services, such as printers, members, software and processing services, to linked PCs.. Using this method, all of the files may be controlled from a single place on the server or from a site that is based on the server. However, a work-based location does not allow for dispersed resources or centralized data storage.

Task 3:
The following hardware requirements are necessary for installing Active Directory domain services on a computer:
· 32GB hard drive
· 64-bit processor running at 1.4 GHz
· Ethernet adapte
· 1 GB of RAM
The following hardware requirements are necessary for installing AD DS on a virtual machine:
· 60GB Hard Disk
· 2GB RAM
· 2-Core CPU
· Network Adapter
Since we must install AD DS on Windows Server 2019, we require Windows Server 2019. Windows 10 or the newest version of Windows is needed for computers.
