In this intermediate Microsoft Server 2016 training, Anthony Sequeira covers the objectives in the 70-742 exam, which is one of three exams required to earn the MCSA: Windows Server 2016 certification.
The three MCSA: Server 2016 exams can be taken in any order, but Microsoft recommends you take them in order. That’s because the exams — and this Server 2016 training — naturally progress from installation to networking to identity management.
This 70-412 training covers the advanced identity configuration stage. These are things you’ll need to set up to control the behavior of users and computer accounts inside of your organizational units — or OUs. They’re the fine-tuned identity controls of Windows Server 2016.
After finishing this Microsoft training, you'll know how to install and configure all these identity services in a Windows Server 2016 environment and more. You’ll also know how to install, configure, and manage Active Directory Domain Services, create and manage Group Policy, and implement Active Directory Certificate Services, Identity Federation, and access solutions.
For anyone who manages Microsoft server training, this Server 2016 training can be used for 70-742 exam prep, on-boarding new systems administrators, or as part of a team training plan.
