The first step will be to select an organization as the target for your Network Administration Processes and Procedure Guide. This organization can be real or hypothetical, and it will be used as the basis for each of the assignments throughout the course. It should conform to the following guidelines:
- Nontrivial: The selected organization should be large and should contain a network infrastructure that requires the implementation of network administration processes and procedures.
- Domain knowledge: You should be familiar enough with the organization and typical network administration needs without significant time required for network administration research and education.
- Accessibility: You should have good access to network administration officers and management in the organization.
