In this course you will learn about the Fundamental building blocks that go into building a Windows Server infrastructure with Windows Server 2012.
This five day course covers the basic skills and knowledge that are required in order to build a Windows Server Infrastructure. It covers networking architecture and topologies, security considerations and best practices as well as basic Windows Server administration skills and technologies such as Windows Server 2012 Installation, configuration, maintenance and performance. Within that it will also cover specific areas such as Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), Domain Name Services (DNS), Storage and many others.
This course is designed to provide foundational level knowledge needed to prepare students to start a career or cross train in Microsoft Windows Server technologies.
Delegates for this course are people who are starting out their career or looking to change careers into Windows Server Technologies and need the fundamental knowledge to help them achieve that. It would be of interest to home computer users, small business owners, academic students, information workers, developers, technical managers, help desk technicians or students who are looking to cross train from an alternative technology.
This course is needed as a first step in preparing for a job in IT or as prerequisite training before beginning the Microsoft Certified System Administrator (MCSA) training and certification path.
At the end of this course you will be able to:
Module 1: Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012
This module explains how the Windows Server 2012 editions, installation options, optimal service and device configuration and general post-installation configuration all contribute to the functionality and effectiveness of your Windows Server implementation.
Lab : Installing Windows Server
Module 2: Implementing Storage in Windows Server
This module will introduce you to different storage technologies, discuss how to implement the storage solutions in Windows Server and will finish a discussion on a resilient strategy for your storage that will be tolerant in various ways, helping to avoid unplanned downtime and loss of data.
Lab : Implementing Storage in Windows Server
Module 3: Understanding Network Infrastructure
In this module, students will learn how to describe fundamental network component and terminology thus enabling the student to select an appropriate network component in a particular scenario.
Lab : Selecting Network Infrastructure Components
Determining Appropriate Network Components.
Module 4: Connecting Network Components
This module explores the functionality of low-level networking components, including switches and routers. In addition, the module provides guidance on how best to connect these and other components together to provide additional network functionality.
Lab : Connecting Network Components
Module 5: Implementing TCP/IP
This module describes the requirements of a protocol stack and then focuses on the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) protocol stack.
Lab : Implementing TCP/IP
Module 6: Implementing Windows Server Roles
This module explains the functional requirements of a server computer and how to select and deploy appropriate server roles to support these functional requirements.
Lab : Implementing Server Roles
Determining the Appropriate Roles to Deploy.
Lab : Implementing Virtualization
Module 7: Implementing Active Directory Domain Services
This module explains that, as a directory service, how AD DS stores information about objects on a network and makes this information available to users and network administrators.
Lab : Implementing AD DS
Module 8: Implementing IT Security Layers
This module explains how, in addition to file and share permissions, you can also use data encryption to restrict data access.
Lab : Implementing IT Security Layers
Module 9: Implementing Windows Server Security
This module reviews the tools and concepts available for implementing security within a Microsoft Windows infrastructure.
Lab : Implementing Windows Security
Module 10: Implementing Network Security
This module explains possible threats when you connect your computers to a network, how to identify them, and how implement appropriate Windows network security features to help to eliminate them.
Lab : Implementing Network Security
Configuring Windows Firewall with Advanced Security.
Module 11: Implementing Security Software
This module explains how an information technology (IT) administrator can account for and mitigate the risks of malicious code, unauthorized use, and data theft.
Lab : Implementing Security Software
Module 12: Monitoring Server Performance
This module discusses the importance of monitoring the performance of servers, and how you monitor servers to ensure that they run efficiently and use available server capacity. It also explains performance monitoring tools to identify components that require additional tuning and troubleshooting, so that you can improve the efficiency of your servers.
Lab : Monitoring Server Performance
Module 13: Maintaining Windows Server
This module explains the importance of system updates, how to troubleshoot the Windows Server boot process, and how to implement high availability and recovery technologies to improve system availability.
