In this session, you'll learn how to build a perfect file server.

Join Sami Laiho in this session to learn how to build a perfect file server. We will cover important topics such as DFS, Access Based Enumeration and correct use of groups in Active Directory that are all applicable to Server 2003 SP1 and up. We will review some newer techniques like Dedup and Dynamic Access Control as well but everything in this session is of most interest to anyone running or designing a Windows file server. You can administer thousands of servers and their shares easily with only using AD Users and Computers or AD Administrative Center and never visit the servers. Do this correctly once and save thousands of hours of using the ADIDAS protocol!

You will learn:
  • How to build AD users and groups wisely for giving out permissions to shares
  • How to save money using Storage Spaces, DFS, ABE, DAC etc.
  • How administer file servers wisely
