After completing this course, students will be able to:
- Describe fundamental network components and terminology thus enabling you to select an appropriate network component in a particular scenario.
- 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.
- Select appropriate storage technologies and configure storage on Windows Server.
- Perform a local media-based installation of Windows Server 2008 R2.
- Describe server roles.
- Implement and configure an Active Domain Directory 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 you network.
- Identify and implement additional software components to enhance your organization and security.
- Monitor a server to determine the performance level.
- Identify the Windows Server tools available to maintain and troubleshoot Windows Server.
- Create and configure a virtual machine with Hyper-V.
Target Student: Candidates for this course are seeking to gain fundamental knowledge and skills around security, networking, and administration in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
