20412 - Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services

20412 - Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services

Length : 5 days

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.

You will learn the advanced configuration and services tasks needed to deploy, manage, and maintain a Windows Server 2012 infrastructure. You will cover advanced networking services, Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), identity management, rights management, Federated services, network load balancing, failover clustering, business continuity, and disaster recovery. 

What You'll Learn

  • Configure and manage iSCSI, BranchCache, and File Server Resource Manager (FSRM)
  • Implement dynamic access control
  • Implement network load balancing
  • Implement failover clustering with Hyper-V
  • Implement distributed Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) deployments
  • Implement AD DS sites and replication
  • Implement Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS)
  • Implement Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS)
  • Implement Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS)

Who Needs to Attend

  • System administrators and IT professionals looking to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to carry out advanced management and provisioning of services within that Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2 environment.


  • Experience working in a Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Windows Server 2012 Enterprise environment
  • Experience implementing, managing, and configuring Active Directory and networking infrastructure
  • Equivalent knowledge and experience to: Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012 (M20410) and Administering Windows Server 2012 (M20411)
