MOC 20412 - Configuring Advanced Windows Server® 2012 Services

Course Length: 5 days
Delivery Methods: Available as private class only
Course Overview

This Advanced Windows Server® 2012 Services training allows students to learn how to provision and configure advanced services using Windows Server 2012 with this five day 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 will 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 three courses, this course primarily covers 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), Identity Management, Network Load Balancing, Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery, Failover Clustering, Rights Management and Federated Services. This course maps directly to and is preparation material for Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA):Windows Server 2012 exam 70-412: Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services.
