Windows Server 2008: Enterprise Administrator, Part 2 of 5

Course description

When building a Windows Server 2008 Enterprise network there are many other aspects that need to be considered above building a single network. The Enterprise network may span several floors, buildings and miles. This course will show planning the DNS and IP addressing. From there the course will cover Designing Active Directory Domain Services and its physical requirements. The course will then cover Windows Server 2008 installation, upgrading, migration and administration. Next the course moves to the deployment to branch offices, setting up systems, security, client and remote access. Virtualization of servers is covered next and how that can create efficiencies with hardware. Then the course moves into data availability planning covering sharing, security, backups and restores. The last section covers designing software update infrastructure and managing compliance.

Each LearnNowOnline training course is made up of Modules (typically an hour in length). Within each module there are Topics (typically 15-30 minutes each) and Subtopics (typically 2-5 minutes each). There is a Post Exam for each Module that must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to successfully and fully complete the course.


Prerequisites

Students should have knowledge of network systems and Microsoft server operating systems.
