Network types supported by Windows
Windows supports two types of networks:
1) the Workgroup 2) domain

Types of computers in the network
1 Independent computers (workgroup mode)
2 domain controller (domain mode and Active Directory installed)
3 Member server (domain mode; No Active Directory installed, just joined to the domain)

Select File System
Windows Server 2003 supports three kinds of file systems: FAT, FAT32, NTFS
When installing Windows Server 2003, it is recommended that you use the NTFS file system because it has many features that are not available for FAT and NTFS:
1 file permission settings, you can enhance the security of the data
2 file compression, you can save disk space
3 file encryption, you can enhance the security of the data
4 disk quotas, you can control the disk use space for each user
5 Audit the use of file resources, you can track the situation of users access to files
6) Domain and Active Directory

The relationship between file system and operating system
Fat:ms-dos, all Windows-level operating systems, OS/2
Fat32:windows 95/98/me/2000/xp/2003
Ntfs:windows nt/2000/xp/2003
Note: The FAT32 file system can be converted to the NTFS file system, not vice versa;
The FAT file system has only shared-level security, and the NTFS file system also has file and folder-level security.

Select License Mode
Client Access License (CAL): The authorization required for clients that need access to Windows 2003 server.
Two modes of authorization:
1 per Server mode: Purchase licenses for each server, and the number of licenses is determined by the number of "simultaneous" connections to the server. Enables a Windows 2003 server to support a fixed number of connections.
2 per Customer mode: Purchase a license for each customer. Each computer that accesses a Windows Server 2003 server requires its own Client Access License (CAL). Using a CAL, a specific client computer can connect to any number of Windows Server 2003 servers.
Per-server mode can be converted to per-client mode, not vice versa.

Select workgroup mode or domain mode
Workgroup mode:
Domain mode:
The conditions required to add a computer to a domain:
1. During the installation process, the computer is added to the domain (requires a certain number of user accounts and passwords) to make it a member server.
2. If you create a new domain that is not possible during installation, you should install it into a workgroup mode before you can set up a new domain (install the Active Directory) to become a domain controller.

Definition: Several computers jointly responsible for the work of the original 1 servers, providing a distributed work environment; The cluster is a single point in the external world, and the visitor's request is evenly distributed within the cluster, and the visitor does not

You don't need to know exactly which server you're accessing.
The main benefits of clustering:
(1) Load balancing: Multiple servers in lieu of a server to respond to user requests, ...
(2) Fault tolerance: Single point of failure does not affect the work of the cluster
(3) Easy to expand

Key features of the Windows 2003 product

Preparation before installing Windows 2003
    1. Key points for building a Windows 2003 network
       ① determines how the Windows 2003 network works and how the computer is organized.
      ② The planning of disk space and the selection of system file formats. The
      ③ determines the status and identity of the installation computer on the network, as a client of a domain controller or domain. The
      ④ determines the network components that need to be installed. The
      ⑤ installs and configures individual domain controllers, feature servers, and clients on the network. The
      ⑥ configures and implements the various service subsystems in the network.
      ⑦ Plan, organize, and implement user management in the network. The
      ⑧ publishes and manages resources in the network.
      ⑨ The data protection system in the planning and Design network.
      ⑩ the selection and implementation of network security technology.

The main features of the NTFS file system
Provides an NTFS 5.0 file system.
① Good fault-tolerant performance.
The ② partition has a large capacity.
③ supports Active Directory (Active Directory).
④ High Security.
⑤ file compression function.
⑥ High reliability.

Reasons to select the NTFS file system
① only uses Windows 2003.
The ② system requires file-level security.
The ③ system requires a high level of local security.
④ Install the domain controller.
⑤ needs to be audited for files or directories.
⑥ requires compression of Windows 2003 files.
The ⑦ requires a higher partition capacity.
⑧ supports hot fixes.

FAT32 File System
The main purpose of selecting the FAT32 file format is to use both DOS (FAT), Windows FAT32, and Winsow xp/2003, as well as their supported applications.

Planning and division of hard disk space
When the installed computer is a new hard drive installation, it is recommended that you reserve more than 4GB of disk space to meet future installation requirements. The user can choose the hard disk partition scheme as follows:
① creates or alters (deletes, selects, formats) the size and format of a disk partition during installation.
② partitions using the FDISK program of the Windows 98 Startup disk.
③ either before or after installing Windows 2003, use the PartitionMagic (hard Disk Partition Wizard) to divide or change the partition.

Choose how Windows 2003 is installed
can choose through CD-ROM, DVD-ROM (CD-ROM), hard disk, network and other media to install.
1. Start the installation directly from CD-ROM using the Windows 2003 installation CD
Currently, the direct installation method using the installation CD is only suitable for installation of a small number of computers.
2. Start Setup from the hard drive's Windows Server 2003 installation directory
First, copy all the installation files on Windows 2003 to a directory on your local computer, and then install the method.
3. HDD Clone Installation (*)
When you need to install a large number of the same type of computer, you sometimes use the method of hard disk cloning.
4. Hard Disk Protection card installation (*)
① installs the hard disk protection card, the network card and the transmission medium each stage.
② plan and install all the software for a single computer.
③ set up the installed computer as the launch pad.
④ set up other computers that are not installed as receiving stations.
⑤ uses the transmitter transmission function on the launch pad to send and transmit the planned and installed system to all the receiving computers at the same time.
After the ⑥ transfer is complete, you need to modify each computer's special parameters individually.

Considerations for installing multiple boot operating systems
To try to install each system to a different partition or a different directory, to prevent the mutual coverage of key files, but also pay attention to the version of the type, generally should first install a low version, and then install the version of the high, otherwise not normal installation.

Selection of INSTALLATION commands
From the format of the installation command:
Winnt (Winnt32) [/s:sourcepath] [/i:inf-file][/t:drive–letter][/f][/b][/ox][/u:script][/r:directory]
Example: After transferring to the CD-ROM I386 directory, run the following command to begin the installation process: "Winnt32/s:f:/i386".

Conversion command-convert
(1) function
Convert converts a file allocation table (FAT) or FAT32 volume to the NTFS file system.

(2) Grammar
convert [Volume]/fs:ntfs [v] [/cvtarea:filename] [/nosecurity] [/x]

(1) parameter
①volume: Used to specify a drive letter (including a colon).
②/fs:ntfs: Cannot omit, convert volume to NTFS.
③(/v): Optional parameter, specifying verbose mode, in which all messages are displayed during conversion.
④ other (): For optional parameters, you can omit parameters.

Command Prompt dialog box, when you type the convert C:/fs:ntfs command, press the ENTER key to enter the automatic conversion process.
