Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA): Windows Server 2012 R2 - Configuring Advanced Services (70-412) Series 2
PrerequisitesSpecial£


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 configuring advanced Windows Server 2012, including Windows Server 2012 R2, services in this Microsoft Official Course.

This course is part three 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 focuses on advanced configuration of services necessary to deploy, manage and maintain a Windows Server 2012 infrastructure, such as advanced networking services, Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS), Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS), Network Load Balancing, Failover Clustering, business continuity and disaster recovery services as well as access and information provisioning and protection technologies such as Dynamic Access Control (DAC), and Web Application Proxy integration with AD FS and Workplace Join.

This course maps directly to and is the preferred choice for hands-on preparation for Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services: Exam 412, which is the second of three exams required for MCSA: Windows Server 2012.

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.
