Course Outline

This course is part three of a series of three courses. Through this series you will gain the skills and knowledge necessary to implement a core Windows Server 2012 Infrastructure in an existing enterprise environment.

Using the prerelease version of the software, you will learn the advanced configuration and services tasks needed to deploy, manage, and maintain a Windows Server 2012 infrastructure. You will cover identity management and federation, network load balancing, business continuity and disaster recovery, fault tolerance, and rights management. This course incorporates material from the Official Microsoft Learning Product 20412 and will help you prepare for Exam 70-412: Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services. Exam 70-412 is one of three exams needed for the MCSA: Windows Server 2012 certification.
