2276 - Implementing a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Network Infrastructure: Network Hosts


Module 1: Reviewing the Suite of TCP/IP Protocols
This module reviews the suite of TCP/IP protocols. By understanding the function of each of the protocols and how the protocols relate to each other, you have the context for understanding network administration tasks and network troubleshooting.
Lessons
Overview of the OSI Model
Overview of the TCP/IP Protocol Suite
Viewing Frames Using Network Monitor
After completing this module, students will be able to:
Describe the architecture of the TCP/IP protocol layers.
Associate the protocols of the TCP/IP suite with those of the OSI model.
Describe the function of the protocols at each layer of the TCP/IP model.
Describe how a frame moves through the TCP/IP layers and what happens at each layer.

 

Module 2: Assigning IP Addresses in a Multiple Subnet Network
This module explains how to construct and assign IP addresses and how to isolate addressing issues associated with the IP routing process.
Lessons
Assigning IP Addresses
Creating a Subnet
Using IP Routing Tables
Overcoming Limitations of the IP Addressing Scheme
After completing this module, students will be able to:
Convert IP Addresses from decimal to binary.
Create a subnet.
Calculate a subnet mask.
Use an IP routing table.
Create subnets using VLSM and CIDR.
Reduce the number of wasted IP addresses.

 

Module 3: Configuring a Client IP Address
This module describes how to configure an IP address for a client computer running Microsoft Windows Server 2003.
Lessons
Configuring a Client to Use a Static IP Address
Configuring a Host to Obtain an IP Address Automatically
Using Alternate Configuration
After completing this module, students will be able to:
Configure a client to use a static IP address.
Configure a client to obtain an IP address automatically by using DHCP.
Configure a client to obtain an IP address automatically by using Alternate Configuration.

 

Module 4: Configuring a Client for Name Resolution
This module describes the various types of name resolution mechanisms provided by the Windows operating systems and how to use and configure them for clients on your network.
Lessons
Resolving Client Names
Managing the ARP Cache
Overview of NetBIOS
Using Static Naming Methods
Using Dynamic Naming Methods
Summarizing the Name Resolution Process
After completing this module, students will be able to:
Describe how client names are resolved.
Use Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) to identify client media access control (MAC) addresses.
Describe the function of Network Basic Input/Output System (NetBIOS).
Configure a client to use a static IP address.
Configure a client to use name resolution servers.

 

Module 5: Isolating Common Connectivity Issues
This module explains how to isolate common connectivity issues and describes how to use utilities and tools as part of this process.
Lessons
Determining the Causes of Connectivity Issues
Network Utilities That You Can Use to Isolate Connectivity Issues
Lab A: Isolating Common Connectivity Issues
Exercise 1: Documenting Your Current Environment
Exercise 2: Resolving Connectivity Issues
After completing this module, students will be able to:
Determine the causes of common connectivity issues.
Use a flow chart to isolate a problem.
Use utilities to isolate a problem.
