Complete this exercise before the end of the module’s week.
You are the network administrator for TreyResearch.net. Trey Research has added a new building and is hiring, and you’ve been tasked to set up new deployment and patching services in the new building, which will be on a separate subdomain and subnet. Updates will be synchronized to the existing company WSUS server.
Company policy dictates a minimum number of physical servers and a minimum security and patching footprint for servers on the network, with no unnecessary roles or features installed.
With these requirements, answer the following questions:
1. Can you install your patching and deployment servers to the same physical server while minimizing the security footprint?
2. What is the minimum number of physical servers required?
3. What virtualized servers can you group together while meeting the requirements?
