Implement DNS in Windows Server FAQs: Cost, Training, Value
The key reason for taking this course in DNS in Windows Server 2016 is specifically that afterwards, you'll understand network management protocols inside the slightly dated server operating system. Different versions of Windows Server configured DNS, DHCP and IPAM differently, but with this course you'll have a thorough understanding of Windows Server 2016. That can help you bridge gaps in your team's understanding or your network's speeds.
No, this Implementing DNS in Windows Server 2016 training no longer ties to a valid certification. At one time, taking this course helped administrators prepare for the MCSA: Windows Server 2016, but Microsoft retired that certification in January 2021. Even though the certification and its three exams (70-740, 70-741, and 70-742) are no longer valid, this training is still crucial for anyone who needs to perform administration tasks in Windows Server 2016.
Unfortunately, Microsoft retired all of its MCSA and MCSE certifications, so there's no valid certification to pursue after taking this course. The only valid certifications related to cloud server administration are now Microsoft Certified: Azure Virtual Desktop Specialty and Windows Server Hybrid Administrator Associate – but those are both more focused on Azure administration than Windows Server 2016.
Any network or server administrator who touches Windows Server 2016 should take this Implementing DNS course. This relatively short course will help make sure you understand DNS configuration, IPAM features and DHCP policies in Windows Server 2016. Since the certification is retired, learning administration in Windows Server 2016 could make you a valuable and rare resource among administrators.
