Designing and Implementing Windows Server 2012 Network Infrastructure and Security

Length: 5 Days | Price: $2595

Active Directory provides a single administration point for sign-on, policies and authentication control. This hands on course provides experience configuring Active Directory and essential network security components such as AD Certificate Services, IPSec and virtual private networking (VPN). Students will install Active Directory Domain Services (ADDS), integrate DNS for Active Directory and Internet name resolution, implement AD security for DNS, and configure logical AD components, such as forests, trees, domains and organizational unit (OUs). Upgrading and migrating the ADDS structure within or between forests, troubleshooting, backup and restore methods and additional maintenance tools will be explored. Attendees will investigate additional Active Directory roles and services. With ADDS installed, we will monitor and maintain sites and replication to assure up-to-date information.

An administrator needs to control the user environment, so students will look at the architecture, scope, inheritance, replication and troubleshooting in group policy before learning to restrict and enable users with login scripts, rights, desktop policies and software deployment and control. We'll also look at further controlling computers through security policies, loopback processing, and templates. Attendees will delegate administration of the configuration policies, control application and inheritance and explore tools to refine the user experience. Comprehensive labs and exercises give the students real experience installing and configuring Active Directory while securing the network.
