This 5-day entry-level course is a unique introduction to Windows Server 2022 topics curated from the introductory materials of several courses (20740WV, 20741WV, 20742WV). This course is designed to help the learner evolve from an on-premises novice to a successful intermediate administrator. It covers Windows Server installation as well as storage and computing services. It also addresses more core features required to administrate networks and infrastructure, including Internet Protocols (IP), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), Domain Name System (DNS) protocols, and remote access. Additionally, this course examines how to deploy other Active Directory server roles, such as Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) and Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS), and how to connect Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) with Entra ID (previously known as Azure AD.)
There are instructor materials available for this course.
