Course Description

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, or DHCP allows an administrator to automatically configure TCP/IP settings on clients and hosts. The Domain Naming System, or DNS, provides user-friendly names for devices and services on the network. Integrating DHCP with DNS enables device host records to be updated automatically, reducing the administrative overhead. This course covers advanced features of DHCP and DNS, including optimizing, securing and providing high availability for name and addressing services.
IP Address Management, or IPAM, is a feature that was introduced in Windows Server 2012. It allows an administrator to manage the DHCP and DNS services on the network by providing monitoring, auditing and discovery of the IP address space. This course also describes the features of IPAM and demonstrates how to install and configure it.
This course is one of a series, which covers the objectives for Microsoft Exam 70-412: Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services. This exam is a requirement for the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA): Windows Server 2012 certification.
