Product Description

Scenario/Summary

TCO: 1 Given a computer system diagram, list the common input devices, output devices, and other associated ports, such as AT Keyboard/ 5pin DIN, Printer/25 Pin Parallel port LPT1, Monitor/15pin VGA port, etc.

You have just been hired by ABC Inc. They received a shipment of new PCs 10 months before you were hired, but all the documentation has been misplaced. You will need to identify the resources assigned to each system component. Using the device manager in Windows, document the information on the following resources and be sure to include all resources (DMA channel, I/O Addresses, interrupt Request and Memory information). Note: not all devices require all four types of resources.

1 PS2 mouse 1 Keyboard 1 Display Adapter 1 Floppy Drive (if available) 1 LPT Printer Port 1 Network Card Com Ports (if available)

Deliverables

Desired (Lab) Learning Outcome: After completing the lab, you should be able to successfully identify the components on the physical machines by using device manager or other Windows based Utilities.

You are required to complete the Lab Report Template listed in step one of this page. In addition, you must submit along with the lab report template a screen shot of each component and its resources.

Note: You will be graded based on the steps and tasks you complete successfully. Credit will be given for partial completions of steps.

Important:
All iLabs must be submitted following iLabTechnicalReportTemplate document and the report file must be dropped into the corresponding bascket in the drop box!
After finishing the steps below, you have to submit your iLab in MS Word or any other equivalent format. Always refer to TechnicalReportsWriting:iLabs and Projects for more details about Technical Reports Writings.

STEP 1: Accessing the Windows desktop

After successfully launching the virtual lab environment, you will be prompted for login credentials. The appropriate login for this lab is Administrator with the password of password in lowercase.

If you need a refresher on how to access the lab environment, see the Course Home iLab tab – Tutorials Section there is a video FAQ on how to login into the lab environment.

STEP 2: Launching the device manager

There are multiple ways to access the device manager. For the purpose of this lab, we will access the device manager via the “My computer” icon on the desktop. Begin by right-clicking on the “My computer” icon. Choose properties from the menu. The system properties window will appear; from here, choose the hardware tab and then click on the device manager button.

STEP 3: Identifying devices and system resources

At this point you are ready to begin identifying the different devices and the resources assigned to them. Before beginning, take a moment to familiarize yourself with the different views available in device manager. For example, click on the view menu tab and navigate through the different views. You can view the devices by type and connection, or the resources by type and connection. You will need to determine which view provides the best information to meet the objectives of this lab.

STEP 4: Capturing screen shots and Documenting your iLab:

In order to complete this lab you will need to submit screen shots of each device and resources being used by the device.

STEP 5: Exiting the lab

Once you have successfully completed the required work, exit from the device manager utility. You can now end the virtual lab session. Once you have completed the lab report, submit it to the week 1 iLab dropbox.

L A B S T E P S

STEP 1: Accessing the virtual lab environment and scheduling the lab

Access the virtual lab environment and schedule the Using the vim Editor in Linux lab for week 5.

Important: All Labs must be submitted using the iLabTechnicalReportTemplate to the lab Dropbox for credit.

STEP 2: Access the command prompt

After successfully scheduling and launching the Using the vim Editor virtual lab, click on the begin lab button. The Red Hat Linux desktop will appear. To access the command prompt, click on the red hat icon and select system tools and then terminal. You may also access the command prompt by right clicking on the Red Hat Linux desktop and choosing terminal from the menu. Either method will allow you to access the command prompt. Note the command prompt will appear as [root@redhat root]#. Take a screen shot of this portion. For a demonstration on how to access the virtual lab Red Hat Linux command prompt and starting the vi editor, view the accessing vi editor video.

STEP 3: Using the ls command

In this step, you use the ls command to find information about the file systems on a RedHat Linux system. This step is activity 4-5 of your text. Refer to page 159 of your eBook for step-by-step instructions. Note: skip steps 1-4. These steps are not required, since you have a virtual lab platform. Begin with step 5 and take a screen shot of this portion. For a demonstration on how to perform this step, view the week 5 step 3 video.

STEP 4: Creating Directories

In this step, you use the mkdir command to create directories in a RedHat Linux directory structure. This step is activity 4-11 of your text. Refer to page 169 of your eBook for step-by-step instructions. Note: skip steps 1-4. These steps are not required, since you have a virtual lab platform. In step 5, type cd /home and press enter, this will place you in the home directory and your command prompt should now read[root@redhat root home]#. Begin with step 6 and take a screen shot of the different commands as you complete them. For a demonstration on how to perform this step, view the week 5 step 4 video.

STEP 5: Removing Directories (10 points)

In this step, you use the rmdir command to create directories in a RedHat Linux directory structure. This step is activity 4-14 of your text. Refer to page 175 of your eBook for step-by-step instructions. Note: skip steps 1-4. These steps are not required, since you have a virtual lab platform. In step 5, type cd /home and press enter, this will place you in the home directory and your command prompt should now read [root@redhat root home]#. Begin with step 6 and take a screen shot of the different commands as you complete them. Corrections for this activity, your activity states that using the rmdir mynewdir/myseconddir command will remove both directories. This is not correct, this command will only remove the myseconddir. You will need to type rmdir mynewdir to remove the mynewdir directory. For a demonstration on how to perform this step, view the week 5 step 5 video.

STEP 6: Working with files

In this step, you use the rmdir command to create directories in a RedHat Linux directory structure. This step is activity 4-17 of your text. Refer to page 185 of your eBook for step-by-step instructions. Note: skip steps 1-5. These steps are not required, since you have a virtual lab platform. In step 6, type cd /home and press enter, this will place you in the home directory and your command prompt should now read [root@redhat root home]#. Begin with step 6 and take a screen shot of the different commands as you complete them. Corrections for this activity, your activity states to use the command mv mynewfile /home/User01/myfourthdir. This is not correct. This command must be typed using the following syntax mv mynewfile /home/myfourthdir . You will also receive the following warning after completing step 16 of activity4-17, rm: remove regular file ‘mynewfile’?, type yes and press enter. For a demonstration on how to perform this step, view the week 5 step 6 video.

STEP 7: Finding files

In this step, you use the rmdir command to create directories in a RedHat Linux directory structure. This step is activity 5-15 of your text. Refer to page 242 of your eBook for step-by-step instructions. Note: skip steps 1-4. These steps are not required, since you have a virtual lab platform. In step 5, type cd /home instead of cd /home/User01 and press enter, this will place you in the home directory and your command prompt should now read [root@redhat root home]#. Begin with step 7 and take a screen shot of the different commands as you complete them. Note: pressing ctrl c, will allow you to escape from any of the commands you enter. For a demonstration on how to perform this step, view the week 5 step 7 video.

STEP 8: Exiting the virtual lab

Once you have successfully completed the required work, close the terminal session of your Red Hat Linux. You can now end the virtual lab session. Once you have completed the lab report and attached your screenshots, submit it to the week 5 iLab dropbox.
