Scenario Overview

Published: December 23, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2

Fabrikam, a fictitious company, has setup their e-mail infrastructure using a resource forest design. Currently they are investigating moving away from this design to a single forest design. However this will take some serious planning and will probably take significant time to implement. In the interim, they want to deploy AD RMS and take advantage of its ability to protect content from unauthorized use.

Fabrikam has two forests, corp.fabrikam.com, the accounts forest and resource.fabrikam.net, the resource forest. These are shown in the texting environment diagram in this topic. Current users reside in corp.fabrikam.com. They use Windows Vista® and the 2007 Microsoft Office system on their desktops. New users are created directly in resource.fabrikam.net. They use Windows® 7 Ultimate and the 2007 Microsoft Office system on their desktop. All e-mail servers and the AD RMS cluster will reside in the resource forest. Prior to being migrated, users in both forests must be able to send and consume protected e-mail content.

noteNote
The scenario detailed in this document is provided as an interim solution. Because of the security concerns exposed by this scenario, the utmost consideration should be given to moving to a single forest design.

Tested forests in this guide

The scenario outlined in this document has been developed and tested on two stand-alone computers that are running the Windows Server 2008 operating system and Hyper-V™. The servers have two 3.0 gigahertz (GHz) dual core processors and 4 gigabytes (GB) of RAM each. The following table shows six virtual machines that were created in this step-by-step guide on the hosts by using Hyper-V.
