by Mark Noble | December 2008 | MySQL Content Management Drupal PHP Web Development

We will consider the example of an imaginary web site created for a restaurant called Good Eatin' Bistro. Chef Wanyama is the owner of the Good Eatin' Bistro, a popular upscale restaurant. You can check this web site at http://goodeatin.drupalbyexample.com/.

Active Directory Design Principles: Part 1

by Florian Rommel | August 2009 | Microsoft Networking & Telephony

In order to design a proper Active Directory infrastructure, knowledge of its workings, and what it is based on, is essential. The basis for Active Directory is the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), which is an X.500 standard (to read more about the X.500 standard please visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X.500). LDAP defines that a directory is a tree of entries, with each entry containing a set of attributes. Each entry has a unique identifier and therefore cannot be duplicated. This way everything is an object in an LDAP-based directory.

There are many great books available for Active Directory design and some of them go into great detail. Compressing all this into a single article is just not possible, so in this two-part article by Florian Rommel, we will stick to the basics and a high-level view, instead of too much detail. This will provide a good overview of how to design a proper Active Directory, with different strategies in mind, and tailor it best for your organization.

In the first part, we will cover Active Directory elements, domain designs, and Lag Replication Site(LRS).
