Hi , This is an interview question that i was asked recently and would like some views on the steps to assess situation and steps to resolve problem.
"We have multiple branches width indivdual lans that all communicate via WAN for emails and document sharing etc. There is a new branch, tell me the steps you would follow in setting up the new network, what information would you gather , hardware/software used use and how you would ensure security and correct permissions"
I know and understand various technologies and have worked in a network environment with Windows Server 2003 so use as much techy info as you like. Please detail info about how could Active Directory, Group policies, security, DNS, and exchanges be managed accross multiple sites be implemented, as i know there seems to be multiple ways of doing things and i am getting confused which is the best path. Include info on why you should implement something one way rather than another
Please note this is the first question posted here so, give feedback if i am using the best approach or awarding enough points
