Network Administrator—Skills and Knowledge: Application
You are a Network Administrator in Net Ambit Inc. The company has one External IP, five servers (Static). One of them handles DHCP (2k3), 12 printers (Static), 175 wired personal computers (PCs) or users (DHCP). This is a new facility or set up and no IPs have been assigned to you.
You’re logged on locally to a user’s computer and your mapping batch file didn’t run and you need to get a file from one of your servers. You have been told that your Internet connection has been set-up and ready for use. You already know how many devices will be connected to your network in the beginning so it’s now time to lay out a plan.
Based on your understanding of the above scenario, create a report in a Microsoft Word document answering the following:
- What plan will you layout in terms of your proposal for listing IP addresses if your first IP is 18.104.22.168 and your last is 22.214.171.124?
You have ten printers that will be used by multiple users.
- What plan will you follow to assign printers to all the users in the organization?
While learning how to read a DHCP Log File, there are various event IDs which detail events.
- Discuss a minimum of five event types found in a DHCP log and describe what they refer to.
Finally, you have 175 PCs that will all be hardwired to the LAN and will each need an IP.
- How will you use your network administrator skills and knowledge in assigning IPs to each user?
