Lesson 5


Planning file and print services

You Learned

  • The Distributed File System (DFS) includes two technologies, DFS Namespaces and DFS Replication, that can simplify the process of locating files, control the amount of traffic passing over WAN links, provide users at remote sites with local file server access, configure the network to survive a WAN link failure, and facilitate consistent backups.

Lesson 5


Planning file and print services

You Learned (cont.)

  • DFS is a virtual namespace technology that enables you to create a single directory tree that contains references to shared folders located on various file servers all over the network.

  • DFS Replication works in tandem with DFS Namespaces to provide unified services such as data distribution, load balancing, and data collection.

Lesson 5


Planning file and print services

You Learned (cont.)

  • The File Server Resource Manager console provides tools that enable file server administrators to monitor and regulate their server storage by establishing quotas that limit the amount of storage space allotted to each user, creating screens that prevent users from storing specific types of files on server drives, and generating reports providing details of users’ storage activities.

Lesson 5


Planning file and print services

You Learned (cont.)

  • Printing in Microsoft Windows typically involves the following four components: print device, printer, print server, and print driver.

  • The simplest form of print architecture consists of one print device connected to one computer, known as a locally attached print device. You can share this printer (and the print device) with other users on the same network.

Lesson 5


Planning file and print services

You Learned (cont.)

  • With network-attached print devices, the administrator’s primary deployment decision is which computer will function as the print server.

  • The Print Management snap-in for MMC is an administrative tool that consolidates the controls for the printing components throughout the enterprise into a single console.
