Upgrade Paths

  • Server 2008 R2

    • Was our preferred option

    • Brings some increased functionality over 2008

    • Unfortunately too ‘new’ to have sufficient vendor support – yet

    • May revisit in 12 months

    • We will be using the 2008 R2 schema extensions

  • Server 2008

    • Not supported by Novell dirXML Loader v2.01

      • Novell is to be turned off by end of November 2009

      • Another of Paul Fahey’s projects

    • Supported by other vendors of ITR applications, eg:

      • Microsoft (ISA Proxy, SQL Server, Exchange 2007 & 2010 etc etc)

      • CommVault (Backup & Archive)

      • Sun Identity Manager 8.1

      • BlackBerry

      • McAfee ePO

      • TRIM

      • Radiator

Why are we upgrading?

  • Microsoft Support

    • Mainstream Support for Server 2003 ends in July 2010

  • Moving away from x86 to x64 operating systems

    • Currently we have a mix of 32 and 64 bit operating systems

    • 64 bit allows us the flexibility of effectively utilising greater than 4gb RAM

  • Introducing physical domain controllers for CCC, NHM & SBY

    • Dell PowerEdge R300, 4 core / 8gb RAM

    • Sandy Bay server located at Engineering for physical security and site resilience

  • Additional features

    • Server Core DCs

    • Read Only DCs

    • Others that rely on functional level of the domain

NT4 Domains

  • CENTRAL

    • Still used for some SAMBA authentication (Tasman P: drives)

  • ITS_ADMIN

    • Starnet

    • Notes BlackBerry server

      We would like to decommission these unsupported domains as part of this project

Test Domain for UTas AD

  • Configuration

    • Root domain of ad.test (2 DCs – NHM & SBY)

    • Child domain of utastest.ad.test (3 DCs – NHM & 2 SBY)

  • Applications

    • Microsoft Exchange 2007 SP2 & Exchange 2010

    • Microsoft Identity Integration Server 2003

    • Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2

    • Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2

Changes

  • Schema changes

    • Required before any 2008 server can be promoted to DC

    • We will be using 2008 R2 schema extensions for upgrade flexibility later

    • Large number changes from 2003 to 2008, only minor changes from 2008 to 2008 R2

  • Domain functional level

    • Can only be raised once all DCs have been upgraded to 2008

    • Enables DFS replication for SYSVOL

    • Enables fine grained password policies

    • Enables last interactive logon information

    • Enables Advanced Encryption Services support for Kerberos

  • Forest functional level

    • Can only be raised once all DCs have been upgraded & the Domain functional level raised

    • No additional features
