In this five-day training, you learn how to configure and operate Windows Server, covering almost every role, but focusing on the most common. Active Directory, File, Print, Web, but also SQL server. You will learn how to deploy these roles, using various methods, like regular OSD for physical machines and virtual machines, but also deploy and configure using PowerShell and Desired State Configuration to push out configuration. You will learn to all this for both on-premises scenarios, but also in hybride cloud connection. 

Class overview

You will learn best practices and all common pitfalls, that way you can avoid having to spend hours to fix problems that should never happen. 

We all know that security is extremely important, in this class you will learn how to correctly configure authentication silos for your important administrative accounts, as well as deploy and configure privileged access workstation, so that your administrative credentials are not spread around. 

System Center could be used to help you manage parts of the environment, so you will learn how to use both the important parts from the system center suit, but also to connect to azure in a correct way, to establish a cloud presence and get the hybrid configuration correct! 

During the week you will build and configure a close to perfect modern infrastructure, with parts on-premises and parts in the cloud. That class fits regardless if you are working with Hyper-V, VMware or run everything on physical hardware, it even fits if you run everything in the cloud.
