Windows 2000 deployment phases

Determine the best overall order to deploy Windows 2000 in your organizations. Here?s one suggested set of deployment steps:

  • Define your current environment by determining which server and client operating systems are currently in use in your organization.

  • Study their functionality and the purposes they serve.

  • Study whether the number of users is likely to change due to mergers, acquisitions, reorganizations, or growth.

  • Study the need to scale your server environment (determine your needs for clustering and load balancing as well as Terminal Services).

  • Design your Active Directory structure including your DNS namespace.

  • Upgrade your network infrastructure and member servers.

  • Implement Active Directory and storage management.

  • Upgrade or migrate your clients to Windows 2000 Professional.
