MCSA - Windows Server 2016
State of the Industry

This advanced level course is designed primarily for IT professionals who have considerable experience with Windows Server and are keen to improve their knowledge in networking and active directory domain services. The course is divided into three parts. The first part covers managing storage and understanding the scenarios, requirements, and computing options that are available and applicable to Windows Server 2016. After completing the first part, students will learn the fundamental networking skills required to deploy and support Windows Server 2016. This part mainly covers IP fundamentals, remote access technologies, and more advanced content including software-defined networking (SDN). The final part includes deploying and configuring Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) in a distributed environment, implementation of Group Policy, backuping and restoring, as well as monitoring and troubleshooting Active Directory–related issues with Windows Server 2016. After completing the course, professionals are able to perform server core installation, server upgrade and migration strategy, implement IPv4/DHCP/DNS/IPAM/VPN’s, and monitor/troubleshoot and establish business continuity for AD DS services. This course also prepares professionals for three official Microsoft certification courses.
