The Domain Management project primarily focuses on the continued improvement and functionality of a networking laboratory environment, through centralized configuration and control via Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Group Policy Management Console.  The primary route for configuration and control actions within Server 2012 R2 is through the creation, modification, and deployment of Group Policy objects within the domain.

The goal of this project is to centralize management of any changes to the domain via deployed group policies in the Group Policy Management Console.  Administrative restrictions for applications or configurations deemed not critical to student functions will be enacted to preclude access via configuration of existing group policies, or creation of new group policies where necessary.  Users will have a specifically directed scope of access within the function of the laboratory, with appropriate files and programs deployed for their usage in classes occurring within the lab environment.
