Course Description

A network directory service uses a distributed database, which contains various objects, replicated among multiple servers. When working with servers, you need to know how to manage these directory services. Take this mostly hands-on course to learn how to achieve this.

Discover how Microsoft Active Directory works. Then, try your hand at creating a new forest and domain in an on-premises virtualized environment. Join computers to the domain for centralized authentication and management purposes. And plan Group Policy settings for domain users and computers.

Moving on, inventory servers before configuring a cloud-based directory service and joining devices to it. When you're done, you'll be able to plan, deploy, and manage on-premises and cloud-based directory services. You'll also be more prepared for the CompTIA Server+ SK0-005 certification exam.
