Linux Implementation Proposal
the Linux operating system and will access resources, as well as share resources, with Linx,
LLC.’s Microsoft Active Directory domain. The domain consists of several Windows Server
2012 R2 servers running various services (Microsoft Active Directory, DNS, DHCP, web
services, printing and file services).
Linx, LLC. also has around 500 client operating system desktops/laptops that run Windows 7
and Windows XP. There is a mix of desktop and laptop systems.
Current Desktop/Laptop Configuration for Windows 7:
Processor: Intel Core i3 Second Generation
Memory: 4GB RAM
Hard Drive: 350GB
Network Card: 10/100/1000 Mbps
USB Ports: 4 USB 2.0
Monitor: 20inch LCD
Current Desktop/Laptop Configuration for Windows XP:
Processor: Intel Core 2
Memory: 2GB RAM
Hard Drive: 80GB
Network Card: 10/100 Mbps
USB Ports: 4 USB 2.0
Monitor: 15inch LCD
Your boss wants you to come up with a proposal to replace all Windows XP systems with Linux.
You will implement the Linux variant specified by your instructor.
(not counting title page, images, diagrams, tables, or quotations that may be used), but may be
longer, not to exceed approximately 7 pages’ worth of student-supplied text. It must be double-
spaced, have 1-inch margins, and use 12-point Times New Roman or 10-point Arial/Helvetica
font. A title page is required.
You must turn this assignment to both the assignment area within our LEO classroom as well as
to the TurnItIn website. Failure to do so may result in point deductions. Follow the TurnItIn
instructions provided within the class.
You must address the following in your proposal and may make any assumptions which are not
1.Analysis & Justification for the use of Linux Ubuntu Operating System
Minimum system requirement for Ubuntu is given below: (Dawson et al., 2016)
|Processor||2 GHz dual-core processor|
|HDD Space||25 GB|
|Display||VGA capable of 1024x768 screen resolution|
Their current XP system configuration:
|Operating System||Windows XP||Windows 7|
|Processor||Intel Core 2||Intel Core i3 Second Generation|
|Memory||2GB RAM||4GB RAM|
|Network Card||10/100 Mbps||10/100/1000 Mbps|
|USB Ports||4 USB 2.0||4 USB 2.0|
|Monitor||15inch LCD||20inch LCD|
By comparing above configuring it can be concluded that there are no hardware changes required to install Linux (Ubuntu) operating system.
2.Plan for migration from Windows XP to Linux.
To address this issue, they need to take a back-up of the old user data from windows machines into the separate storage device, and then they need to transfer the same data into the Linux Ubuntu systems once Ubuntu is installed. Here, they will use the external hard drive to accomplish the user data migrations.
There could be different kind of user data which need to be migrated like. Normal Office files, Email conversations & important web bookmarks (Tan et al., 2015).
Normal files can be directly copied to the Portable external hard drive. While for emails and bookmark backups they need to follow specific procedures.
Backup of email conversations:
Apart from normal office files, other important data of user could be Email conversations. For migration of the user email data, they need to export the emails from email client into the email files (Gyunka et al., 2017).
Backup of bookmarks data:
To back up the bookmark data first user needs to go to the browser and export the bookmarks as .html document (Hanif et al., 2015). They have identified the procedure for Google Chrome and Firefox Mozilla browser, which is mentioned below.
For Firefox Mozilla:
Go to “Bookmark” options > Select “Show all Bookmarks” > Choose “Import & Backup” > Click on “Export Bookmark to HTML”.
In above case, it will ask to choose a location to save these bookmarks. Save the "bookmarks.html" file on to the External Hard drive. They will be able to import these bookmarks.html files into the browser of our choice onto the Linux platform
3.Determine the hardware to be used and the installation options.
There is one more option for bootable media, and that is to create bootable CD/DVD for Ubuntu, for the same they can use a software tool like Nero https://www.nero.com/ena/?vlang=us.
Once the bootable media is ready with Ubuntu image they will insert the same into the Windows XP or 7 systems and restart the system, they need to access the BIOS menu with the appropriate option selection in BIOS menu and restarting the system and this will give them Install option where they need to choose "erase everything and install Ubuntu" option. All other options henceforward will be "Do as direct" type following the procedure they will be able to replace the Windows XP / seven platforms to Linux Ubuntu Platform (Babol et al., 2017). During the installation process, it will ask to set the username and Password details, which will be used to login into the system once the Ubuntu is installed.
4.How will users log onto the systems? Explain.
5.How will systems receive IP addresses? Explain.
6.How will DNS be accessed by the LSDG systems? Explain
7.Explain how files on the network may be accessed by LSDG.
8.Securely share files within the group and other selected groups/users in the LSDG.
9.How will printing be handled? Explain.
Go to system>administration>printing then they will find the printer that they have added earlier then go to server>setting and click on the option "Publish shared printers connected to this system” (Van, 2008). After that, they will restart the SMB services, and they will be able to add the printer on the server. To add the printer in the server, they will open server manage > manage> printer server, and they will click on add printer and provide an appropriate credential to add a printer, and they can control the printing form server.
10. What, if any, data will be encrypted? Explain.
