MOD 10967: Fundamentals of a Windows Server Infrastructure
During this five-day course, students learn the fundamental knowledge and skills that you need to build a Windows Server infrastructure with Windows Server 2012.
This course is intended to give the student networking, security, and system administration information that is needed to implement a Windows Server infrastructure. This course covers the basics of installation and configuration, storage, network infrastructure, network components, network protocols, server roles, Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), Group Policy, IT security, server security, network security, security software, monitoring server performance, and maintaining a Windows Server.
The typical student that takes this course is just starting their Information Technology (IT) careers or are looking to change careers paths into Windows Server technologies. The fundamental knowledge and skills are usable by home computer users, small business owners, academic students, information workers, technical managers, help desk technicians, or students who want to cross train from another technology.
This course is step one in preparing for a career in IT or as a prerequisite before starting the Microsoft Certified System Administrator (MCSA) certification path.
Upon course completion, students will be able to:
Perform a local media-based installation of Windows Server 2012.
Select appropriate storage technologies and configure storage on a Windows Server.
Describe fundamental network components and terminology so you can select an appropriate network component.
Implement a network by selecting network hardware components and technologies and determine the appropriate network hardware and wiring components for a given situation.
Describe the protocols and services within the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) suite of protocols and implement IPv4 within a Windows Server environment.
Describe and implement server roles.
Implement and configure an Active Directory Domain Service (AD DS) forest.
Describe the concept of defense-in-depth and determine how to implement this approach with Windows Server.
Identify the security features in Windows Server that help to provide defense-in-depth.
Identify the network-related security features in Windows Server to mitigate security threats to your network.
Identify and implement additional software components to enhance your organization’s security.
Monitor a server to determine the performance level.
Identify the Windows Server tools available to maintain and troubleshoot Windows Server.
