The installation will be performed using an ISO image DVD that contains the SUSE installation. The installation process will configure language, keyboard, license, partitioning, time settings, and desktop selection. A graphical interface will be used for end users in order to provide an easier transition from Windows to SUSE. Command line interface configurations will be selected for servers and administrative systems in order to provide better performance (opensSUSE).

During account and group migrations, all accounts will be reviewed to ensure access only to users that are still within the organization. This will be an opportunity to HACKD, LLC to remove old and expired accounts from the infrastructure. Password age and expiration will be configured within the /etc/shadow file (User and Group Overview LabSim, 2015). The IP Address configuration implemented will be a mixture of Static and Dynamic IPs. Static addresses will be assigned to servers, network devices and other peripherals such as printers. Desktops and laptops will be configured to use dynamic IP addressing through a DHCP lease that will last 12 hours. In order to manage dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) requests a DHCP virtual server will be configured. This server will have appropriate services enabled including “dhcpd”. Configuration changes will be saved at the dhcp.conf file. Static IP addresses will be configured in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts file. DHCP lease settings are defined within the /etc/dhcpd.conf file. The system domain name service (DNS) will be handled by a virtual DNS server. Desktop and laptops will have an entry indicating the DNS server within /etc/resolv.conf. Systems will be configured to use the domain name service with the /etc/hosts file as a backup. For name resolution Linux can use a range entry located in the /etc/nsswitch.conf file. The file is
