E10 – Deploying a Virtual WSUS Server on Windows Server 2019

In this episode I will be deploying a WSUS server running on Microsoft Windows Server 2019 leveraging virtualization using VMware ESXi and vCenter. WSUS will be used to pull patching down from the Microsoft’s servers so internal SECNET servers can install patches. This server will help to ensure servers that do not require internet access remain blocked from it.

E9 – Deploying Linux DNS & NTP Servers with Ansible

In this episode I will be building two Linux DNS and NTP servers using Ansible based on CentOS 8.0. This episode is a part of my video series on Building an Enterprise Network that I call Secured Enterprise Core Network (SECNET). The DNS and NTP servers will be used as a relay to reduce and prevent systems like the Active Directory Domain Controllers from reaching directly out to the Internet.
