Working with Lab Worksheets

Each lab in this manual requires that you answer questions, shoot screen shots, and perform other activities that you will document in a worksheet named for the lab, such as Lab16_worksheet.docx. You will find these worksheets on the book companion site. It is recommended that you use a USB flash drive to store your worksheets, so you can submit them to your instructor for review. As you perform the exercises in each lab, open the appropriate worksheet file, fill in the required information, and then save the file to your flash drive.

SCENARIO

After completing this lab, you will be able to:

  • Plan and design Group Policy
  • Configure loopback processing
  • Configure WMI filtering
  • Configure slow-link detection for GPOs
  • Modify Group Policy caching default settings
  • Deploy a site-link GPO

Estimated lab time: 140 minutes

 

Exercise 16.1 Planning and Designing Group Policy
Overview

 

In this written exercise, you will read the background information for the Contoso Corporation provided in Appendix A, then read the information below, and then answer the questions.
Mindset Group Policy is a technology used to configure user and computer settings from a centralized location (Active Directory Domain Services). Domain-joined computers and users can be controlled by administrators, forcing the computers and clients to meet specific policies.
Completion time 20 minutes

 

Question 1 Which type of policy is processed first?

 

Question 2 Typically, which policy is not added to GPO settings?

 

Question 3 What should you do to ensure certain GPO settings are not overwritten by other policies?

 

Question 4 A company application includes a 32-bit version and a 64-bit version. How can you ensure that 32-bit machines get the 32-bit version and 64-bit machines get the 64-bit version?

 

Question 5 You want to create several kiosk machines for the lobby. However, you want to ensure certain settings are applied to the kiosk computer no matter who logs on. What can you do?

 

Question 6 You administer an OU that is used for testing. How can you block most of the GPOs?

 

Exercise 16.2 Configuring Loopback Processing
Overview

 

In this exercise, the computer settings will overwrite user settings when applying GPO settings for a GPO (GPO1) that you will create. Unlike the approach used in previous courses, you will not be guided through each step. Instead, you must determine the best way to perform the task based on the guidelines provided.
Mindset: You are responsible for establishing a multiple-kiosk computer that will be used in the front lobby of your company. You want to ensure that the configuration of the computer is the same regardless of who logs on. How can you do it?
Completion time 10 minutes

 

Take a screen shot of the Configure User Group Policy Loopback Processing Mode dialog box that shows the settings by pressing Alt+Prt Scrand then paste it into your Lab 16 worksheet file in the page provided by pressing Ctrl+V.

 

Exercise 16.3 Configuring WMI Filtering
Overview In this exercise, you will fine-tune the processing of GPOs by using WMI filtering that will affect only 32-bit machines. Unlike the approach used in previous courses, you will not be guided through each step. Instead, you must determine the best way to perform the task based on the guidelines provided.
Mindset Using the WMI Query Language, administrators can filter based on several hardware and software criteria. When added to Group Policy Objects, WMI Filters will filter the targeted systems and filter based on the specified criteria.
Completion time 15 minutes

 

Take a screen shot of the Configure user Group Policy Loopback Processing Mode dialog box that shows the settings by pressing Alt+Prt Scrand then paste it into your Lab 16 worksheet file in the page provided by pressing Ctrl+V.

 

Exercise 16.4 Configuring Slow-Link Detection
Overview In this exercise, you will configure a Group Policy to define a slow links as 1000 KBps. Unlike the approach used in previous courses, you will not be guided through each step. Instead, you must determine the best way to perform the task based on the guidelines provided.
Mindset Defined in kilobytes per second (KBps), links between a client and the nearest domain controller are measured. A link slower than 500 KBps is considered a slow link.
Completion time 10 minutes

 

Take a screen shot of the Configure Group Policy Slow Link Detection dialog box that shows the settings by pressing Alt+Prt Scrand then paste it into your Lab 16 worksheet file in the page provided by pressing Ctrl+V.

 

Exercise 16.5 Modifying the Group Policy Caching Defaults
Overview

 

In this exercise, you will enable Group Policy Caching. Unlike the approach used in previous courses, you will not be guided through each step. Instead, you must determine the best way to enable Group Policy Caching based on the guidelines provided.
Mindset Turned on by default in Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1, Group Policy Caching pulls certain GPOs from the domain controller and stores them locally on the client computer for faster load times at the next network logon.
Completion time 5 minutes

 

Take a screen shot of the Configure Group Policy Caching dialog box that shows the settings by pressing Alt+Prt Scrand then paste it into your Lab 16 worksheet file in the page provided by pressing Ctrl+V.

 

 

Exercise 16.6 Deploying a Site-Link GPO
Overview In this exercise, you will link the GPO to Site2.
Mindset Group Policy Objects linked at the site level apply first to all users and computers located within that site. Site-linked GPOs will, in turn, affect all users and computers of all domains within the forest located in that site. This means that if three domains have objects located within one site, a GPO linked to the site will apply to every user and computer in that site.
Completion time 10 minutes

 

  1. On CRWDC01, using Server Manager, open Active Directory Sites and Services.
Question 7 Which GPO executes first: domain level, organizational units, or sites?

 

  1. Right-click Sitesand choose New Site.
  2. In the New Object – Site dialog box, in the Name text box, type Site2. Select DEFAULTIPSITELINKand then click OK.
  3. When the site has been created, click OK.
  4. Close the Active Directory Sites and Services.
  5. Using Group Policy Management Console, right-click the Sitesnode and choose Show Sites.
  6. In the Show Sites dialog box, click Select Alland then click OK.
  7. Right-click Site2and choose Link an Existing GPO.
  8. In the Select GPO dialog box, click GPO1and then click OK.
  9. Click the Site2node.
  10. Take a screen shot of the Group Policy Management console by pressing Alt+Prt Scrand then paste it into your Lab 16 worksheet file in the page provided by pressing Ctrl+V.

 

Lab Challenge Planning a Group Policy (Contoso Group Policy Project)
Overview

 

In this written exercise, you will read the background information for the Contoso Corporation provided in Appendix A, then read the information below, and then write your plan.
Mindset You are a new administrator for the Contoso Corporation, which is a leading company in producing smart devices for the home. Your manager wants you to review the GPOs and determine the best strategy to deploy when using and managing GPOs. He also wants you to recommend GPO settings that should be applied.
Completion time 70 minutes
