Active Roles Server – ARS

This course is intended for both future and current administrators and super users of ActiveRoles Server.

Quest Software’s virtual training center (VTC) is utilized for this course. Each student enrolled in the course is assigned their own:

  • Windows Server 2003 Server for installing and using ARS
  • Windows 2008 Server with Exchange 2007 already installed and running
  • A Domain Controller for an individual, fully operational domain

Each student in the Quest training lab is given the chance to build their personal environment and experiment with ARS in a “real-world” situation on the Production Class Servers. With full access to the tool in such an environment, students not only learn by “doing” instead of “watching”, they are also able to test plans and ideas in a safe environment that’s still applicable.

This Quest virtual training course is meant for current Active Directory super-users and/or administrators who understand basic user and group administration, delegation of rights, and domain structure.

After completing this class, the student should be able to:

  • Create an architectural implementation plan for ARS
  • Install ARS, including the web interface and replication servers
  • Develop ARS roles that fit their business rules
  • Develop ARS policies for the uniform implementation of attributes
  • Customize the Web Interface
  • Develop workflows for their specific environment
  • Create a start-to-finish implementation for support personnel and other users, from back-end setup to user interface

This is a twelve hour class provided in two six-hour sessions that include lab, lecture, and testing. This course is provided as a private, web-based class via Quest’s VTC for up to ten students from the organization, or as a public course.
