Tasks

You will be granting permissions to the Guest user, so once you have installed your virtual machine, you will need to make sure this is enabled, as follows:

Complete the following tasks:

  1. Install the Print Server.
  1. Install the following printer as a network printer with manual settings, according to the operating system vendor approved method:
    • Port: FILE: (Print to File)

      • it’s the second printer in that department
    • Ensure the printer is shared on the network
    • Location: ROI Multimedia Department
    • Comment: Main printer for ROI Multimedia
    • Do not set as the default printer
    • Print a test page (this will save a .prn file – name it Testpage1).
  1. Assign a priority level of 20 to this printer.

    • it is the first shared drive in that department.
  1. Configure security for your storage device so that the Guest user has Read access only.
  1. Copy the docx file onto your storage device. You’ll need to do this outside of the virtual machine, so you’ll need to exit, copy, then restart the virtual machine. Open the test document in Notepad and print it to the networked printer. This will save a .prn file – name it as Testpage2.
  1. Document the installation, configuration and testing of the installation using the Installation Completion form (ROI_Installation_comp.docx).

Part 4: Demonstrate peripheral devices

You need to demonstrate to a user how to use the peripherals that you’ve installed on the network in a demonstration of 5-10 minutes.

Prepare for your demonstration by organising:

Follow the Video recording instructions (pdf) to record and submit your video. 

You are encouraged to rehearse the demonstration before completing the assessment.

During the meeting, make sure that you:
