The Windows Server® 2012 The Site-to-site VPN Corp-to-cloud test lab consists of the following:

Base Configuration test lab guide

  • One computer running Windows Server 2012 named DC1 that is configured as an intranet domain controller, Domain Name System (DNS) server, and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server.

  • One intranet member server running Windows Server 2012 named APP1 that is configured as a general application and web server.

  • One member client computer running Windows® 8 named CLIENT1 that will switch between Internet and intranet subnets.

  • One intranet member server running Windows Server 2012 named EDGE1 that is configured as an Internet edge server.

  • One standalone server running Windows Server 2012 named INET1 that is configured as an Internet DNS server, web server, and DHCP server.

The Windows Server 2012 Base Configuration test lab consists of two subnets that simulate the following:

  • The Internet, referred to as the Internet subnet (131.107.0.0/24).

  • An intranet, referred to as the Corpnet subnet (10.0.0.0/24), separated from the Internet subnet by EDGE1.

Computers on each subnet connect using a physical hub, switch, or virtual switch. See the following figure for the configuration of the Windows Server 2012 Base Configuration test lab.

Corp-to-cloud test lab guide

Once the Base Configuration is in place, you will add the following three computers to create the cloud provider infrastructure:

  1. One intranet member server running Windows Server 2012 named 3-EDGE1 that is configured as an Internet edge server.

  2. One intranet member server running Windows Server 2012 named 3DC-1 that is configured as a domain controller.

The Windows Server 2012 The Corp-to-cloud test lab guide adds a subnet that simulates an intranet, referred to as Cloudnet subnet (10.6.0.0/24) connected by site to site VPN to Corpnet by EDGE1 and 3-EDGE1.

Computers on each subnet connect using a physical hub, switch, or virtual switch. See the following figure for the configuration of the Windows Server 2012 Corp-to-cloud test lab:

In addition, you will configure EDGE1 and 3-EDGE1 as site-to-site VPN servers to complete the Corp-to-Cloud test lab.
