Caveat

This course is a follow-on for both my Server 2012 courses, Parts I & II. It is highly recommended anyone contemplating signing up for this course to first complete both of my Server 2012 courses or have a good background working with Server 2012.

I did my best not to go over material covered in Server 2012 such as DNS. Most of the material covered in this course is unique and adds value to what was learned in both my Server 2012 courses.

This is Part I of a two-part series for learning Windows Server 2016 using hands on training. Part I is for those needing to become familiar with Server 2016, building and maintaining a Microsoft Server 2016 network from the ground up. In this first part, students will learn how to install and configure Windows Server 2016 just as they would as a network administrator or networking consultant.

Part one of the course trains the student on how to install, configure and manage the most common roles and services found on a Microsoft 2016 network. Part 2 of the course, will introduces the more advanced roles and features offered in Server 2016.
