    Admin Network

    Hello,

    Out of interest, how do people have their admin networks set up?

    Currently, our admin system runs on an old version of NetWare and our curric system is on Windows 2003. However, we are moving the admin network over to Windows (for a number of reasons) in the next few weeks.

    I was wondering if other people have put the admin servers onto a seperate domain from the curric system, or whether all servers are members of the same domain, but with really tight security in place?

    Mark.

    Single domain, single network. SIMS has a dedicated server, all files are on a central fileserver, logon and dhcp is handled by a dedicated server.

    Re: Admin Network

    Two LANs, two domains here but I am trying to persuade the county (owners of the admin lan) to merge to form a single network.

    Re: Admin Network

    Admin server but only one LAN/Domain which everyone logs in, admin staff simply have membership of the admin group to control access to the admin office server shares.

    Re: Admin Network

    1 domain, Sims dedicated server. Admin staff in a seperate OU.

    Pretty simple really, there is no need to have seperate networks these days in a 2003 environment.

    Disagree with that there is always a need for added security. My networks are ultra secure but I still like the comfort of having seperate networks and I will never change on that.

    We have 2 networks here and a stack of servers.

    He said there was no real need. Liking it that way is not a need, it is a preference. Windows Server 2003 is designed around complex and secure networks, and as such, complete segregation of networks should be a thing of the past. However, that doesn't mean you are wrong doing it your way. There is more than 1 way to skin a cat.

    Yeh that's kind of my point, a properly configured Windows 2003 domain structure should be just as secure as 2 seperate networks, that's the whole point of active directory.

    You could also argue that having an integrated network is more secure as you only have to worry about 1 set of security policies

    Re: Admin Network

    2 Lans, Well V-Lans 1 Curric, 1 Admin

    Setup & maintained by LEA - well the Curric Domain isn't but the VLAN is - Pain in the a**e as have to go thru all the red tape (or should the be Pink as were are "IN Salford") to get a port switched

    Think they chose the VLAN ports at random as ther is no logic to what Port belongs to what VLANs
