Jason is the administrator of a Windows 2008
network. He manages five Windows 2008
servers, one of which functions as a file server for three departments. Lately,
he is faced with two separate problems. First, a research library was just put
into the building. It has two computers running Windows 7, and users can log
into them while they are doing research. They are automatically connected to a
home directory on the server where the users can create documents based on
their research findings. However, the users are finding that, when they move
from the computers in their offices to the research computers, they have to
reset their desktops, and if they create a shortcut on their office computers,
they have to createthe same shortcut on the
research machines. The users are asking for a solution to this problem.
The second issue is one that the users are not
complaining about (yet), but that is becoming a problem for Jason. The usersâ€™
home folders are stored on the file server. He periodically checks storage use
and finds that some users are consuming a disproportionate amount of hard drive
space on the server. In addition, this space usage is increasing dramatically
over time. When he investigates, he finds that many users are downloading quite
a large quantity of game demos and pictures, and these items are creating most
of the storage consumption.
Jason wants to be able to provide for the ongoing
storage needs of the users while enforcing an upper limit on the amount of
space any one user can consume. He also wants to be able to separate each
department so that if the users in one department consume the maximum amount of
space, that will not overrun the free space available to the users in another
department. He currently has two hard drives with capacities of 100GB and
200GB, and he would like to allocate 100GB to each department.
You have been called in
to analyze this situation and make recommendations.
Explain how you would
implement a similar scenario using UNIX?
