Networking with Windows Server Training Course
Get hands-on instruction and practice implementing networking with Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 in this 5-day Microsoft Official Course. You will learn the skills you need to help reduce networking complexity while lowering costs, simplifying management tasks, and delivering services reliably and efficiently. You will learn how to automate and consolidate networking processes and resources, more easily connect private clouds with public cloud services, and more easily connect users to IT resources and services across physical boundaries. You will learn how to configure some of the key networking features such as IP Addressing, IPAM, DNS and DHCP, Remote Access technologies such as DirectAccess and VPNs. You will learn how to secure networks using Windows Firewall, IPSec and Network Access Protection, as well as becoming familiar with high performance technologies such as NIC Teaming, Receive Side Scaling, SMB Direct and SMB MultiChannel. You will learn how to integrate your network infrastructure with Hyper-V and leverage virtual high performance technologies such as SR-IOV, virtual Machine Queue, (VMQ), virtual Receive Side Scaling (vRSS) as well as provision multitenant networks using Hyper-V Network Virtualization and provisioning external access for those multitenant networks using the built in software gateway in Window Server 2012 R2. As part of the learning experience, you will perform hands-on exercises in a virtual lab environment. NOTE: This course is based on Windows Server 2012 R2 Preview. This course is designed for experienced IT professionals who support medium to large enterprises and have fundamental knowledge and experience in networking with Windows Server.
Course 10970: Networking with Windows Server is intended for Information Technology (IT) professionals who have some networking knowledge and experience and are looking for a single course that will further develop that knowledge and skillset on core and advanced networking technologies in Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2. This would typically include:
Module 1: Implementing IPv4 Services
Windows networks rely heavily on the IPv4 protocol for the transmission of network data. As a network administrator, you must understand the functionality of IPv4. This module explains how to plan and troubleshoot IPv4-based networks to ensure a properly functioning network environment.
Module 2: Implementing Name Resolution by Using DNS
The DNS is the foundation name service in Windows Server 2012. It provides name resolution, and enables DNS clients to locate network services, such as Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain controllers, global catalog servers, and messaging servers. If you configure your DNS infrastructure poorly, or if DNS is not working correctly, these important network services will be inaccessible to your network servers and clients. This module explains how to deploy, configure, manage, and troubleshoot DNS.
Module 3: Implementing IPv6
IPv6 is a technology that helps the Internet support a growing user base and an increasingly large number of IP‑enabled devices. IPv4 has been the underlying Internet protocol for almost 30 years. Its robustness, scalability, and limited feature set is now challenged by the growing need for new IP addresses. This is largely because of the rapid growth of new network aware devices. This module explains how to implement coexistence between IPv4 and IPv6 networks and transition from an IPv4 network to an IPv6 network.
Module 4: Implementing and Managing IPAM
This module explains how to implement and manage the IP Address Management feature in Windows Server 2012.
Module 5: Implementing Remote Access
Remote access technologies in Windows Server 2012 enable users to securely connect to data and resources in corporate networks. In Windows Server 2012, four component technologies (Remote Access, DirectAccess, Routing, and Web Application Proxy) are integrated into a single, unified server role called Windows Server 2012 Remote Access.
This module explains how to implement remote access technologies in Windows Server 2012. It also describes the different implementation scenarios for small or medium-sized organizations and enterprise organizations.
Module 6: Implementing Network Security
When you connect your server computers to a network, you might expose them to additional security threats. You must formulate a strategy to protect your servers from these threats. User policies, antivirus software, encrypted network traffic, and other protective measures can work together to help shield your servers from security threats. This module explores some of the technologies in Windows Server 2012 that you can use to help to mitigate these network security threats.
Module 7: Implementing Network Access Protection
You can use Network Access Protection (NAP) to create customized health-requirement policies to validate the health of a computer before allowing it to access or communicate with a network. Additionally, NAP automatically updates compliant computers to ensure their ongoing compliance and limits the access of noncompliant computers to the restricted network until they become compliant.
This module explains how to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot NAP.
Module 8: Implementing Networking for Branch Offices
Branch offices can provide challenges for network administrators. When organizations have centralized infrastructure, such as database servers in a data center or file servers in the head office, access from branch offices is often limited because of the decreased network bandwidth of wide area network (WAN) connections.
This module explains the different ways that you can use Windows Server 2012 to overcome the limitations of branch office scenarios.
Module 9: Implementing Networking Infrastructure for File and Data Services
Windows Server 2012 provides a large set of features that you can use for network file access. You can use shared folders for different remote storage usage scenarios. You can use the Internet SCSI (iSCSI) capability in Windows Server 2012 to connect to remote iSCSI storage or configure Windows Server 2012 as an iSCSI storage host.
This module explains the key network file and data services available in Windows Server 2012. It also explains how to implement the network file and data services to address the network and remote storage needs of your organization.
Module 10: Implementing and Managing Networking in Hyper-V
Most companies are deploying almost all servers as virtual machines running on a physical host. Virtual machines are isolated even when they are running on the same Hyper-V host, and they communicate only over the network. Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 includes a completely redesigned and extensible virtual switch, which enables basic network packet forwarding, and also more advanced features such as support for network virtualization. As a Windows server administrator, it is important that you know how to configure the networking environment for the virtual machines and hosts. This module describes the networking components available in Hyper-V and describes how to configure these components.
Module 11: Virtualizing your Network Infrastructure
This module explains the concepts and technologies related to virtualizing a physical network infrastructure in Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2. It also explains how to implement some core components of these technologies such as Hyper-V Network Virtualization and the built in software gateway in Windows Server 2012 R2.
