Get hands-on instruction and practice deploying and migrating roles and services with Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 in this three-day Microsoft Official Course. In this course, you will explore how to plan for and deploy your Windows Server infrastructure in physical, virtual, and cloud environments. You will examine different deployment methodologies and techniques, as well as general imaging usage and configuration. You will also be instructed on how to use Windows Deployment Services (WDS) and how to work with deployment tools such as the Windows Assessment and Deployment Toolkit (Windows ADK), the Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit (MAP), and the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT). You will also analyze how to plan for virtualizing server workloads and considerations around technologies available for networking and storage, as well as considerations for specific applications such as SQL, Exchange, and other application workloads. This course also focuses on migrating essential components within your server infrastructure to Windows server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2. It covers the migration of core infrastructure technologies such as migrating Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), Domain Name System (DNS), and Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). This course also describes in detail the migration of File and Web servers, Hyper-V, Windows Update services (WSUS), and Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS). It also covers consideration options available for extending some of your workloads into Microsoft Azure to allow for on- and off-premise as well as hybrid deployment scenarios. The detailed hands-on labs, in-depth content and learning provides you the knowledge and skills to deploy and migrate your Windows Server infrastructure and its constituent components with minimal overhead and cost for one-off or large scale deployments.
After completing this course, students should be able to:
This course is intended for experienced IT Professionals who have the following experience and background:
Before attending this course, students must have:
Module 1: Preparing to Deploy Windows Server 2012
Although you can use a number of tools and technologies to help you deploy the Windows Server 2012 operating system, it is important to understand how to plan for and perform individual server installations by using local media. This module explains how to plan for and perform individual server installations by using local media. It also describes how to configure, secure, and manage the server following installation by using remote management tools where appropriate. The module also explains how to activate your servers and manage volume activations.
Lab: Planning to Implement Windows Server 2012
Lab: Configuring and Managing Server Core
After completing this module, students should be able to:
Module 2: Deploying Windows Server 2012
Organizations have different Windows Server installation and deployment needs. Often times, the choice that organizations make about which deployment technology to use depends on the number of servers they plan to deploy. This module describes the key deployment scenarios and provides guidance about suitable Microsoft deployment technologies to facilitate them. This module also explains how to use the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) to assist with some of these deployment scenarios and the different types of images you use in some of these scenarios. Finally, this module also provides instructions on how to perform unattended installations of Windows Server 2012.
Lab: Deploying Windows Server with Answer Files
Module 3: Implementing Lite-Touch Deployments
Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) 2013 forms a unifying framework for Microsoft Windows Deployment Services, the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK), and System Center 2012 Configuration Manager (Configuration Manager 2012) with documentation on best practices to help you deploy the Windows Server 2012 operating system more easily. Larger organizations need deployment technologies that can reduce or eliminate user-interaction during the deployment process. You can use Windows Deployment Services to help support both: lite-touch and zero-touch, high-volume deployments. This module explores the functionality of Windows Deployment Services and explains how to use Windows Deployment Services tools to perform lite-touch deployments. It also describes how to configure MDT and perform lite-touch deployments by using MDT.
Lab: Implementing Lite-Touch Deployments
Module 4: Planning to Virtualize Workloads
Most organizations are looking for ways to decrease the cost and complexity of providing an information technology (IT) infrastructure. Virtualization has become a key component in developing an efficient and cost-effective IT strategy. This module introduces some of the critical planning components that you must consider when you implement virtualization.
Lab: Planning to Virtualize Workloads
Module 5: Upgrading and Migrating Networking Services
Servers that run network services are responsible for facilitating communication between computers on your network, and ensuring that the configuration of network infrastructure components supports a reliable network environment. The two most common network infrastructure roles on Windows Servers are the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server role and the Domain Name System (DNS) server role. Upgrading and migrating these roles is a critical first step in the migration process to ensure that the rest of your migration project can use the network infrastructure.
In Windows Server 2012, you can manage the DHCP and DNS server roles after or during migration with the new IP Address Management (IPAM) feature. IPAM enables you to centralize the management and monitoring of DHCP and DNS servers on your network.
This module will explain the tools and processes that you can use to migrate DHCP and DNS server roles, and will show you how you can use IPAM to manage and monitor your DHCP and DNS servers.
Lab: Upgrading and Migrating Network Services
Lab: Implementing IPAM
Module 6: Upgrading and Migrating Server Roles
File servers and web servers are present in almost all corporate networks. You should consider the impact of these servers on your network, and how migrating to Windows Server 2012 can improve the functionality of file servers and web servers on your network. In this module, you examine the migration considerations and the processes for migrating file servers and web servers.
Lab: Migrating File Services
Lab: Preparing and Migrating a Web Server
Module 7: Upgrading and Migrating AD DS
For most organizations, the Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) deployment is the most important component in the IT infrastructure. Organizations deploy or migrate AD DS for a central identity and access service that provides access to many other network services in the organization. AD DS provides the primary security mechanism within most organizations, and enables policy-based management for user and computer accounts. It is critical that you follow the correct procedures for upgrading or migrating your AD DS infrastructure to ensure the continuity of your organization’s core identity and access functionality during the upgrade or migration process.
Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS) works with AD DS to provide a public key infrastructure (PKI) that facilitates additional authentication for users and computers in your environment. Migrating AD CS to Windows Server 2012 depends on a specific process, and can provide several benefits to your PKI environment.
This module explains how to prepare for migrating AD DS in Windows Server 2012. It also explains the tools that you can use to perform the migration. It then explains how to upgrade and restructure domain controllers. Finally, it explains how to migrate AD CS.
Lab: Upgrading AD DS to Windows Server 2012
Lab: Migrating AD CS
Module 8: Migrating to Microsoft Azure
Microsoft Azure is an open and flexible cloud-based platform that allows you to build, deploy, and manage applications within Microsoft-managed datacenters. Within Azure, Microsoft provides cloud-based services, such as Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Microsoft Azure AD). Microsoft Azure AD is an online directory service that you can use for cloud-based applications. This module explores Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Azure AD.
Lab: Implementing Azure Active Directory
