1 CORNELL Campus Active Directory Consolidation Campus IT Forum September 27, 2011 Andrea Beesing, CIT Infrastructure Division CORNELL

2 Topics Deciding whether to migrate Preparing campus AD (CornellAD) for unit migrations Preparing for AD migration activity Where to go for more information CORNELL

3 To migrate or not to migrate Each unit decides based on their environment and needs Factors to consider Commitment to virtualization Maturity of unit AD implementation Number of managed objects Resources available to manage the environment Number of Windows-based server resources CORNELL

4 If you migrate AD migration prior to virtualization will be smoother for end user Minimize the time between beginning and completing a migration Day to day management will be more demanding during the transition period Maximize the University’s investment in resources to support the effort CORNELL

5 Preparing CornellAD MS certificate authority in place for secure server to server communication (IPSEC) R2 upgrade in October Identity Lifecycle Manager (ILM) to Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) in October Address cornell.edu name conflict this fall Provisioning and deprovisioning admin accounts Activation of account using NetID in place Deprovisioning of admin accounts based on HR status change after FIM upgrade CORNELL

6 CornellAD support enhancements Preparing CIT Help Desk to handle more routine questions Training additional CIT Identity Management staff to handle backline cases Improving content and organization of CornellAD Computing at Cornell site CORNELL

7 Infrastructure readiness team Moe Arif Pete Bosanko Laurie Collinsworth Sean Hayes Dan Elswit/Dan Hazlitt Keshav Santi CORNELL

8 Preparing Cornell for migrations Contractor engagements with Modis/Idea Skilled resources with extensive experience with AD consolidation projects Initial report with recommendations for overall strategy Pilot migration project started in mid-August Campus Life, Facilities, CALS Complete two pilots by early November with contractors Third pilot migration with Cornell team SCCM review and recommendations Purchased Quest Migration Manager licenses Purchased Forensit Profile Wizard licenses CORNELL

11 AD Migration Process Tom Parker, Project Manager OIT Planning and Program Management

12 Pilot Studies (in progress) Lab environment build out Install and configure Quest migration tools Migration testing User/Group Migration Resource Update Manager Workstation Migration Member Server Migration Developing Test Plans Developing Migration Plans Building Migration Documents Conducting Migration Demo for Campus-wide IT Admins (October 11) Generalized Project Plan, Templates, Migration scripts CORNELL

13 The Major Steps Step 1 - Discovery and Unit Preparation Step 2 - User/Groups and Workstation Migration Step 3 - Member Server Migration and Cleanup CORNELL

14 Step 1 (est. 3 weeks) Discovery User/Group Inventory Workstation Inventory Member Server Inventory Application Discovery Login Script/GPO Discovery CORNELL

15 Step 1 (continued) Unit Preparation (includes a pilot) Change Control Process (CCAB etc..) Quest tools, Admin Accounts, Service Accounts, remote access Verify firewall changes/agent connectivity Verify DNS resolution exists between the Unit and Cornell.edu Verify domain level trust Verify connectivity between source and target servers Unit admins verify admin access to Cornell.edu OU Identify all Service Accounts in the Unit Create new Cornell.edu service accounts for Unit apps Identify local admin account for workstations Determine backup schedule for migration scheduling purposes Workstation readiness: file/print, server service, remote registry, admin shares.. New OU structure Attributes to merge (description, profile path, home folder path, home drive) Verify GPO/Login scripts in place for delegated OU in Cornell.edu Agent push – centralized Computer rename (to add required prefix) – centralized TSM CORNELL

16 Step 2 (est. 2 weeks) Migration of: Users Groups Workstations Troubleshooting CORNELL

17 Step 3 (est. 2-4 weeks) Member Server Migrations: App Servers File Servers Print Servers DB Servers Cleanup – removal of permissions Troubleshooting Decommission old domain CORNELL

18 Migrations in parallel, but staggered.. Step 3Step 1Step 2 estimate of 7-9 weeks CORNELL …. Migrating Unit (a) Step 3Step 1Step 2 estimate of 7-9 weeks …. Migrating Unit (a) Step 1Step 2 estimate of 7-9 weeks …. Migrating Unit (a)

19 Migration Partnership -- Roles and Responsibilities Readiness and internal scheduling is the responsibility of the migrating units CIT to provide: CornellAD infrastructure Project Management and technical support Dedicated TSP-level migration support Dedicated migration engineers Access to CornellAD engineers (Tier 3) All participants to provide: Commitment to partnership and the planning process… CORNELL
