Case Scenario Exercise

 < Day Day Up > 

In this exercise, you will read a scenario about a fictitious pharmaceutical company's Active Directory deployment, and then answer the questions that follow. The questions are intended to reinforce key information presented in this chapter. If you are unable to answer a question, review the lessons and try the question again. You can find answers to the questions in the 'Questions and Answers' section at the end of this chapter.


You are consulting for a pharmaceutical company named Fabrikam, Inc., that specializes in the development of drugs that fight heart disease. Fabrikam employs a staff of over 600 scientists and researchers, many of whom have worked for other companies in the pharmaceutical industry. Fabrikam's headquarters are located in Ithaca, New York. Fabrikam has remote offices in Boston, Massachusetts, and Palo Alto, California.

Fabrikam is in the planning phase of a new Active Directory deployment, and has asked you to design their group strategy. The consultant responsible for the Active Directory design informs you that Fabrikam's business groups are not limited to a single office. In other words, members of the accounts payable team in both Ithaca and Palo Alto will be granted access to the same resources. However, each location has resources, such as printers, that only users at a specific location should be allowed to access.


  1. Which of the following group names is most fitting to an appropriate naming strategy?

    1. Accounts Payable

    2. Boston AP

    3. GG Accounts Payable

    4. GG Ithaca Accounts Payable

    5. GG Ithaca New York Accounts Payable

  2. How will you recommend that Fabrikam enforce the group naming conventions?

  3. Will you recommend the User/ACL, Account Group/ACL, or Account Group/ Resource Group authorization method?
