Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA): Windows Server 2012 R2 - Administering (70-411) Series 2
PrerequisitesSpecial£

Mon 5 Sep - Fri 9 Sep 2016

Description

This instructor-led fee based course has been commissioned by the UIS through a third party company.

You will receive hands-on instruction and practice administering Windows Server 2012, including Windows Server 2012 R2, in this Microsoft Official Course.

This course is part two in a series of three courses that provides the skills and knowledge necessary to implement a core Windows Server 2012 infrastructure in an existing enterprise environment. The three courses collectively cover implementing, managing, maintaining and provisioning services and infrastructure in a Windows Server 2012 environment.

Although there is some cross-over of skills and tasks across these courses, this course primarily covers the administration tasks necessary to maintain a Windows Server 2012 infrastructure such as configuring and troubleshooting name resolution, user and group management with Active Directory Domain Services (ADDS) and Group Policy, implementing Remote Access solutions such as DirectAccess, VPNs and Web Application Proxy, implementing Network Policies and Network Access Protection, Data Security, deployment and maintenance of server images, as well as update management and monitoring of Windows Server 2012 environments.

This course maps directly to and is the preferred choice for hands-on preparation for Administering Windows Server 2012: Exam 411, which is the second of three exams required for MCSA: Windows Server 2012.

NOTE: Labs in this course are based on the General Availability release of Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1.

For those who wish to commence with the MTA entry-level credential from Microsoft there are a number of Online courses listed in Related courses below that would be relevant.
