In this entry-level Microsoft skills training, Dan Charbonneau covers how to install, configure, and maintain Server 2000.
The best estimates about server market share put Server 2000 at about half a percent (0.5%) worldwide. If this were a newer product, that’d be catastrophically low. But given the age of the software and the fact that extended support ended more than a decade ago, half a percent seems pretty good. Windows Server 2000 was ubiquitous in its day, and it’s possible you may still run into it again.
After finishing the videos in this Windows Server 2000 training, you'll know how to install, configure, and maintain Server 2000. You’ll also learn how to install and configure the ISA Server 2000 Firewall and Caching features.
For anyone who leads a technology team, this Microsoft training can be selectively curated into individual or team training plans or visited as a legacy Microsoft reference resource.

Who Should Take Windows Server 2000 Training?
This Windows Server 2000 training is considered administrator-level Microsoft training, which means it was designed for server administrators.
New or aspiring server administrators. A new network administrator may not know at the start of their career that familiarity with older technologies is valuable, but you will before long. After only a few months on the job, you’ll learn that the men and women who know how the old servers work are venerated and cherished. With this training in all the functions of Windows Server 2000, you can be one of the experts who get called on in those hours of greatest need too.
Experienced server administrators. Server administrators with a couple of years of experience in the field will know that there are times when knowing your way around the older technologies is more valuable than being up to speed on the most recent releases. This training covers all of Windows Server 2000, one of the more ubiquitous platforms in its time, and it can make sure you’re ready to use it in the not-unlikely event that you run into it.
