Get hands-on instruction and practice configuring advanced Windows Server 2012, including Windows Server 2012 R2, services in this five-day Microsoft Official 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 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 courses, this course focuses on 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), Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS), Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS), Network Load Balancing, Failover Clustering, business continuity and disaster recovery services as well as access and information provisioning and protection technologies such as Dynamic Access Control (DAC), and Web Application Proxy integration with AD FS and Workplace Join.

This course maps directly to and is the preferred choice for hands-on preparation for Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA): Exam 412: Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services, which is the third of three exams required for MCSA: Windows Server 2012 credential.

Please Note: Labs in this course are based on the General Availability release of Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1.

Target Audience

This course is intended for Information Technology (IT) Professionals with hands on experience implementing, managing and maintaining a Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2 environment who wish to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to perform advanced management and provisioning of services within that Windows Server 2012 environment. Candidates who would typically be interested in attending this course will be:

  •   Experienced Windows Server Administrators who have real world experience working in a Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2012 enterprise environment.
  •   IT Professionals who are looking to take the exam 412, Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services.

Attend From Anywhere

Description:

How Attend from Anywhere works

Our ‘Attend from Anywhere’ courses allow you to access award-winning classroom training without leaving your home or office. We use WebEx web and video conferencing platform by Cisco. Before you book you should check to ensure you meet the WebEx system requirements and run a test meeting to ensure the software is compatible with your firewall settings (if it doesn’t work you should adjust your settings or contact your IT department about permitting the website).

WebEx system requirements >

Run a WebEx test meeting >

  • Up to three weeks before the start of the course we will send you Joining Instructions by email.
  • You should enter ‘My Virtual Account’ to update your address for courseware and book a pre-test with a member of the Virtual Learning Team, who will check everything works.
  • 15 minutes before the course begins you should launch the software, connect your audio and familiarise yourself with the interface and how the virtual interactions work.
  • The course will be split into multiple sessions, with short breaks in between so you can stay focused and refreshed.
  • Throughout the course the learning professional will use an electronic whiteboard, which will transmit all the notes directly to your screen.
  • You can ask the learning professional a question at any time, either by simply speaking aloud through your microphone or by clicking the virtual ‘raise-a-hand’ button on the interface.
  • Towards the end of the course there will be plenty of time for detailed Q&As with the learning professional, just as if you were physically in the classroom.
  • Following the course you will be asked to complete a course evaluation form, which will allow you to give detailed feedback on your experience and help us to make future improvements.
  • For four weeks after the course has finished you will have on-demand access to helpful videos on the subject matter, and we may send you useful emails reminding you of the ‘Key Learning Points’.

You will need an internet-connected computer and a USB headset with an in-built mic to interact with the trainer. Two monitors are recommended; one to stream the video from the classroom and the other to display the interactive interface.

How reliable are Attend from Anywhere courses?

We use leading Cisco technology and our classrooms are specifically optimised to improve sound quality for remote attendees. We also offer a pre-test so you can test everything is working before the course starts.

How are remote attendees made to fell included?

Our trainers are specially trained on how to interact with remote attendees and our technology allows them to take over remote PCs. Our remote labs ensure all participants can take part in hands-on class exercises wherever they are.

What makes Attend from Anywhere courses cost effective?

Our technology makes our Attend from Anywhere courses the same high-quality experience as our classroom training, so we do not price them differently. However, organisations and individuals do make significant financial savings by booking this type of course when associated costs (such as travel, expenses, hotels, food and childcare) are factored in.

How can I take the exam remotely?

You may be able to take your exam via one of our accredited remote live proctors. Where this is not possible you may be issued with an exam voucher or required to attend a classroom in order to take the exam. Please contact us for specific details in relation to your course.

If you are able to take your exam remotely you need to book it before the course begins  and switch on a webcam to enable invigilation and show photo ID (please note that exam slots are subject to availability with the live proctors and may not be available during the week of the exam. Exam slots are booked on a first come first served basis).
