Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services (Exam 70-412)

Course ID: HLT 20412

Course Length: 5 days

Course Description:
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, rights management, Federated services, network load balancing, failover clustering, business continuity and disaster recovery.

Target Student:
This course is intended for IT professionals with hands-on experience implementing, managing, and maintaining a Windows Server 2012 infrastructure in an existing enterprise environment, who wish to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to perform advanced management and provisioning of services within that Windows Server 2012 environment. Suitable candidates are typically experienced system administrators who have real-world experience working in a Windows Server 2008, Windows server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2012 environment.

To ensure your success, we recommend:

  • At least one year hands on experience working in a Windows Server 2008,Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2012 environment.
  • Real-world experience implementing, managing, and configuring AD DS and networking infrastructure in an enterprise environment.
  • Knowledge equivalent to courses: 20410B: Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012, and 20411B: Administering Windows Server 2012.

Delivery Method:
Instructor led, group-paced, classroom-delivery learning model with structured hands-on activities.
