For VirtualBox Users
  • Video and Lab - Creating Virtual Install of Server 2012r2 Using VirtualBox  

    In this first lab of the course, you will create a virtual install of Server 2012 r2 full install. These first three labs are the foundation for all labs to follow. It is imperative students successfully complete this first series of three labs. Windows users can use either VMWare or VirtualBox. MAC users will need to use VirtualBox, VMWare Fusion for MAC and Parallels for MAC.

  • Video and lab - Create a Virtual Install of Server 2012 Core Using VirtualBox  

    In this lab, you will install Windows Server 2012 Core. When installed as a core (default option), the server not only has a smaller footprint but also needs less patching. For lab users and testers of Server 2012 r2, this type of installation saves in storage space. Especially useful when SSDs are never large enough to contain all your VMs.

  • Video and Lab - Create a Virtual Install of Windows 10 Using VirtualBox  

    In the is lab, you will add a virtual Windows 10 machine to your lab. The Windows 10 Virtual install will be use to add a client to your 2012 R2 domain and to confirm the services and features you add to your 2012 network work as advertised. It is imperative students successfully complete this second lab.

For VMWare Users
  • Video and Lab - Creating a Virtual Install of Server 2012 Using VMware.mp4  

    In your first lab of the course, you will create a virtual install of Server 2012 r2 full install. These first three labs are the foundation for all labs to follow. It is imperative students successfully complete this first series labs. Windows users can use either VMWare or VirtualBox. MAC users will need to use VirtualBox, VMWare Fusion for MAC and Parallels for MAC.

  • Video and Lab - Create a Virtual Install of Windows 10 Using VMWare  

    In the is lab, you will add a virtual Windows 10 machine to your lab. The Windows 10 Virtual install will be use to add a client to your 2012 R2 domain and to confirm the services and features you add to your 2012 network work as advertised. It is imperative students successfully complete this second lab.

PowerShell

Managing Shared Folders
  • Video and Lab - Configure a Distributed File System Using Windows Server  

    In this lab, you will learn how to configure the Distributed File System (DFS) for Windows Server 2012, 2016 or 2019. The Distributed File System allows you to set up shared folders deployed on different servers into one or more logically structured namespaces. Each namespace will appear to users as a single shared folder with a series of subfolders.

  • Video and Lab - Setup Work Folders on Windows Domain  

    In this lab, students will configure Work Folders in a domain environment.

  • Video and Lab - Install and configure FSRM on Server 2012  

    In this lab, you will install and configure the File Server Resource Manager (FRSM) on Server 2012 R2. File Server Resource Manager is a set of features that allow you to manage and classify data stored on file servers. The FSRM gives you greater control allowing you to block file types (file screening), create quotas and generate storage reports.

  • Video and Lab - FSRM Initial Configuration  

    In this lab, you will configure File Server Resource Manager (FRSM) installed in the previous lab.

  • Video and Lab - Configuring FSRM File Screening  

    In this lab, you will learn to configure FSRM File Screening. File Screening Management allows you to create file screens to block types of file from being saved on a volume or in a folder tree.

  • Video and Lab- Configuring FSRM Quota Management  

    In this lab, you will learn to configure the File Server Resource Manager Quota Management. By using File Server Resource Manager to create a quota for a volume or folder, you can limit the disk space allocated for it.

IPv6
  • Video and Lab - Configuring and managing IPv6 for Server 2012 r2  

    In this lab, you will configure your network for IPv6 addressing. Microsoft has a strong history of supporting IPv6 unfortunately for the unwary, they still have some work a head of them. Microsoft supports IPv6 in Server 2012 but it could be said they support the Microsoft version of IPv6 and not the industry standard.


    This lab will provide students with an overview of the IPv6 capabilities in Server 2012 r2 and highlight some potential areas of concern. I won't be going into too much detail about what IPv6 is or how it works but the lab does link to a IPv6 primer. 


    One main issue is the lack of any real support for configuring IPv6 on Server Core. The sconfig utility does not allow the use of IPv6 so we are left with PowerShell which is fine as long as you can figure out the correct syntax. Google should be your go to source.


    There are other documented issues with Microsoft and IPv6 mainly with third party hardware such as routers and firewalls. There are registry hacks for clients and servers to help get IPv6 working.


    The other issue is the total lack of support for mapping network devices and shares using IPv6. The UNC path for a share does not understand IPv6 addressing and treats the letters and the colons as separate drive letters. Microsoft does have a work around.


    This is the most difficult lab of the course. The Server Core portion is what makes this so. If you try and run through the lab, you will crash and burn and experience a feeling best described as 'epic failure.' Slow and steady wins the race! Again, take your time with this lab. Use Google to find a work around and don't forget the the basics of troubleshooting network connectivity.
