The aim of this unit is to provide learners with an understanding of networking infrastructures, the directory based system that supports the addressing and resource management of any large scale networked system. Network Infrastructure systems such as Active Directory (from Microsoft) or eDirectory (from Novell) amongst many others, are systems used to manage resources, naming of devices, allocation of rights, privileges and security polices. Learners taking this unit will explore the principles supporting any network infrastructure system, design a solution for a given networked environment as well as implement and test the solution. This unit links to all networking and systems support units and offers learners the opportunity to build a complex network system.
