In this exercise, you will analyze the existing environment at a medium-sized company to create a forest model. Review the scenario, and then create the forest model.
Your design team is planning the Active Directory infrastructure for LitWare, Inc., a publisher of books and online children's literature. LitWare, Inc., publishes online children's literature in French. Last year it acquired Lucerne Publishing, a major publisher of books in German. Because the businesses are so different and because multiple languages are involved, Lucerne Publishing has retained its IT management department and is run with a minimum of involvement from LitWare, Inc. LitWare, Inc., has no initiatives to change this arrangement. LitWare, Inc., has 10,000 employees in Paris; Lucerne Publishing has 3,000 employees in Berlin and 4,000 employees in Lucerne.
Answer the following questions to create a forest model.
In this exercise, you will continue with the LitWare, Inc., scenario and analyze the existing environment to design a schema modification plan. Review the scenario, and then design the schema modification plan.
While gathering information for the Active Directory infrastructure plan, your design team learns that the management of the distribution department at Lucerne Publishing would like to include the title of each book published and the book's ISBN in the directory. Currently, there are no schema attributes or classes that handle book titles and ISBNs, so the design team is considering initiating a schema modification. By placing the titles and ISBNs in the directory, managers in the distribution department hope to ready themselves for the installation of a new directory-enabled inventory application.
To plan a schema modification, the schema modification policy of LitWare, Inc., requires the team to do the following:
