Module 5 : Upgrading and Migrating Network Services

Servers that run network Services are repsonsible for facilitating communicatio between computers on your network , and  ensuring that the configuration of Network  infrastructure components supports a reliable network environment . The two most common network infrastructure roles on Windows Servers are the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol ( DHCP ) server role and the Domain Name System ( DNS ) server role . Upgrading and migrating these roles is a critical first step in the migration process to ensure thatt he rest of your migration project can use the the network infrastructure. In Windows Server 2012 , you can manage the DHCP and DNS server roles after or during migration with the new IP Address Management ( IPAM ) featuure , IPAM enables you to centralize the management and monitoring of DHCP and DNS servers on your network.

Module 7 : Upgrading and Migrating AD DS

For most organizations , the active directory services ( AD DS) deployment is the most important compoenent in the IT infrastructure, Organizations deploy or migrate AS DS for a oentral identity and access service that provides access ti many other network services in the organization .AD DS provides the primary security mechanism within most organizations , and enables policy- based management for user and omcputer accounts.It is critical that you follow the correct procedures for upgrading or migrating your AD DS infrastructure to ensure the continuity of your organization's core identitiy and access funcitonality during the upgrade or migration process.

Active Directory Certificate Services ( AD CS ) works with AD DS to provide a public key infrastructure ( PKI ) that facilitates additional authentication for users and computers in your environment. migrating AD CS to Windows Serve3r 2012 depends on a specific process, and you can provide several benefits to your PKI environment.
