Mastering Active Directory. - Second Edition

Section 1: Active Directory Planning, Design, and Installation

This section will help you to learn about the physical and logical components of Active Directory, and how those can be used to build an Active Directory environment by considering business requirements, availability, efficiency, and security. Before we dive into the management and advanced functionalities of Active Directory, we still need to learn about the technology behind a directory service, and the chapters in this section will guide you with this. Apart from that, we are also going to look into the new features of Active Directory 2016.

As we all know, organizations are moving into cloud services on an increasingly frequent basis. This changes the authentication and authorization requirements as well. Therefore, we are also going to evaluate the benefits of moving to a hybrid identity with Azure Active Directory.

This section contains the following chapters:

  • Chapter 1, Active Directory Fundamentals
  • Chapter 2, Active Directory Domain Services 2016
  • Chapter 3, Designing an Active Directory Infrastructure
  • Chapter 4, Active Directory Domain Name System
  • Chapter 5, Placing Operations Master Roles
  • Chapter 6, Migrating to Active Directory 2016

Description

Active Directory (AD) is a centralized and standardized system that automates networked management of user data, security, and distributed resources and enables inter-operation with other directories. This book will first help you brush up on the AD architecture and fundamentals, before guiding you through core components, such as sites, trust relationships, objects, and attributes. You will then explore AD schemas, LDAP, RMS, and security best practices to understand objects and components and how they can be used effectively. Next, the book will provide extensive coverage of AD Domain Services and Federation Services for Windows Server 2016, and help you explore their new features. Furthermore, you will learn to manage your identity infrastructure for a hybrid cloud setup. All this will help you design, plan, deploy, manage operations, and troubleshoot your enterprise identity infrastructure in a secure and effective manner. You’ll later discover Azure AD Module, and learn to automate administrative tasks using PowerShell cmdlets. All along, this updated second edition will cover content based on the latest version of Active Directory, PowerShell 5.1 and LDAP. By the end of this book, you’ll be well versed with best practices and troubleshooting techniques for improving security and performance in identity infrastructures.
