MOD 20413: Designing and Implementing a Server Infrastructure

Description

This self-study class will provide hands-on instruction and practice planning, designing and deploying a physical and logical Windows Server 2012 R2 enterprise infrastructure in this 5-day Microsoft Official course. As part one in a series of two courses that provides the skills and knowledge needed to design and implement a Windows Server 2012 R2 infrastructure in an enterprise environment. Completing both courses cover designing, planning, deploying, securing, monitoring, automating, and virtualizing an enterprise server infrastructure. The focus of this course is the knowledge and skills needed to provide an enterprise solution that supports manual and automated server installations in a physical and virtual environment including the supporting file and storage services. In addition, the student will learn the skills required to provide enterprise networking solutions such as DHCP, IPAM, VPN, and DirectAccess. IT Professionals also learn the skills required to design and implement a forest and domain infrastructure including multi-domains/forest and branch office scenarios. This course is directly mapped to and is the preferred choice for hands-on preparation for Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE): Exam 413: Designing and Implementing and Server Infrastructure, which is the fourth of five exams required for MCSE: Server Infrastructure certification.

**Labs in this course are based on Windows Server 2012 R2 and System Center 2012 R2. This course is designed for experienced IT professionals who support medium to large enterprises and have experience administering Windows Server 2012 R2 and have an MCSA: Windows Server 2012 certification or equivalent skills.**

The intention of this course is to teach IT professionals who are responsible for planning, designing, and deploying a physical and a logical Windows Server 2012 enterprise Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) infrastructure including the network services necessary. They have experience of previous Windows Server operating systems and possess Windows Server 2012 certification Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA) or equivalent skills. The course is also intended for IT professionals who are looking to take the exam 70-413: Designing and Implementing a Server Infrastructure, as a stand-alone, or as part of the requirement for the Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE): Server Infrastructure Certification.

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

Plan server upgrade and migration.
Plan and implement a server deployment strategy.
Plan and deploy servers by using System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager (VMM).
Design and maintain an IP configuration and address management solution.
Design and implement name resolution.
