COURSE AIMS

This intensive 5-day Microsoft training course provides delegates with hands-on instruction and practice with planning, designing and deploying a physical and logical Windows Server 2012 R2 enterprise infrastructure. The course is part one in a series of two courses that provides the skills and knowledge necessary to design and implement a Windows Server 2012 R2 infrastructure in an enterprise environment. It covers the knowledge and skills needed to provide an enterprise solution which supports manual and automated server installations in a physical and virtual environment. Delegates will also learn the skills necessary to provide enterprise networking solutions such as DHCP, IPAM, VPN, and DirectAccess. They will acquire the skills necessary to design and implement a forest and domain infrastructure including multi domains/forest and branch office scenarios. This course maps directly 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.
NOTE: Labs in this course are based on Windows Server 2012 R2 and System Center 2012 R2.

TARGET AUDIENCE

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 should also have experience of previous Windows Server operating systems and possess Windows Server 2012 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.
In addition to their professional experience, attendees on this training course should already have the following technical knowledge:

  • A good understanding of Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) fundamentals and networking concepts.
  • A good working knowledge of both Windows Server 2012 R2 and Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). For example, domain user accounts, domain vs. local user accounts, user profiles, and group membership.
  • A good understanding of both scripts and batch files.
  • A solid understanding of security concepts, such as authentication and authorization.
  • Familiarity with deployment, packaging, and imaging tools.
  • Ability to work in a team/virtual team.
  • Ability to produce good documentation and have the appropriate communication skills to create proposals and make budget recommendations.
  • Knowledge equivalent to Windows 2012 R2 MCSA.


Delegates who attend this training can meet the prerequisites by attending the following courses, or obtaining equivalent knowledge and skills:

  • 20410D: Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012
  • 20411D: Administering Windows Server 2012
  • 20412D: Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services
