In this intermediate Microsoft Server 2016 training, Garth Schulte covers the objectives in the 70-740 exam, which is one of three exams required to earn the MCSA: Windows Server 2016 certification.
MCSA: Server 2016 is broken into three exams that mirror the three stages of implementing Server 2016 in an enterprise environment. This 70-740 training teaches you how to install Server 2016 and do the initial configuration. It also covers the new features of Windows Server, like containers, Nano servers, and failover clustering.
After finishing this Server 2016 training, you'll know how to plan and install a Windows Server 2016 infrastructure, including how to set up AD, set group policies, and be able to use Hyper-V and containers. It’s all the stuff you’ll handle on a daily basis. For that reason, this is valuable training for anyone who just started using Server 2016 — even if you’re not planning to get the certification.
With at least a year of experience, systems administrators who complete this 70-740 course will be well-positioned to step into higher-level administrator roles and be on a path to systems engineer.
For anyone with systems administrators on their team, this Server 2016 training can be used for 70-740 exam prep, on-boarding new systems administrators, or as part of a team training plan.
