Installing Windows the manual way can be a time-consuming, almost soul-sucking part of an IT desktop professional’s daily life. This activity takes forever and requires interactive attention for only occasional button-clicks, all while eating away at your user productivity.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Deploying Windows – and indeed your entire desktop infrastructure – is a task you can easily automate with free tools and a few up-front investments in time. With a surprisingly small amount of effort, you can completely automate Windows deployment throughout your entire environment. It’s all about creating the right building blocks and layering them together in just the right way.
Veteran CBT Nuggets instructor Greg Shields is a Microsoft MVP who has been installing Windows desktops since its earliest versions. He’s built desktop deployment solutions for businesses very small to very large, and has figured out the smart ways to automate the entire process. He’s also an expert on remote applications, having managed Terminal Server, Remote Desktop Services, and Citrix environments since back in the days of NCD WinFrame.
Greg joins CBT Nuggets once again for his 19th training series, this time on the tips, tricks, and tactics in Implementing a Desktop Infrastructure – which these days is known as Microsoft’s 70-415 exam. Are you an IT Desktop Administrator looking to eliminate the manual scut work from your everyday life? Are you ready to prove your skills by successfully passing Microsoft’s new MCSE: Desktop Infrastructure? Then join Greg on this short-and-sweet exploration of complete automation in implementing your Windows desktop infrastructure.
You’ll shortcut your MCSE training in deploying Windows automatically, from Microsoft’s Light Touch to Zero Touch method. You’ll learn how to rapidly deploy and manage applications atop Remote Desktop Services as well as implement VDI desktop virtualization with the Remote Desktop Virtualization Host atop Hyper-V. Save yourself weeks of research and accelerate your Windows desktop deployment learning in this deep dive with Microsoft MVP Greg Shields.
