Deploying and Migrating Windows Servers 2012 Training – Course Syllabus:
Module 1: Preparing to Deploy Windows Server 2012
Although you can use a number of tools and technologies to help you deploy the Windows Server 2012 operating system, it is important to understand how to plan for and perform individual server installations by using local media. This module explains how to plan for and perform individual server installations by using local media. It also describes how to configure, secure, and manage the server following installation by using remote management tools where appropriate. The module also explains how to activate your servers and manage volume activation.
Module 2: Deploying Windows Server 2012
Organizations have different Windows Server installation and deployment needs. Often, the choice that is made about which deployment technology to use depends on the number of servers to be deployed. This module describes the key deployment scenarios and provides guidance about suitable Microsoft deployment technologies to facilitate them. The module then describes how to use the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) to assist with some of these deployment scenarios, the different types of images you use in some of these scenarios, and how to perform unattended installations of Windows Server 2012.
Module 3: Using Windows Deployment Services
Larger organizations need deployment technologies that can reduce or eliminate user-interaction during the deployment process. You can use Windows Deployment Services to help support both lite-touch and zero-touch, high-volume deployments. This module explores the functionality of Windows Deployment Services and explains how to use Windows Deployment Services tools to perform lite-touch deployments.
Module 4: Implementing Microsoft Deployment Toolkit
Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) 2013 forms a unifying framework for Microsoft Windows Deployment Services, the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK), and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2012 (Configuration Manager 2012) with documentation on best practices to help you deploy the Windows Server 2012 operating system more easily. In addition, MDT 2013 includes some tools that accelerate image creation and deployment. MDT 2013, together with the supporting documentation and tools, helps lower the effort required for server deployment. This module explains how to configure MDT and how to perform lite-touch and zero-touch deployments by using MDT.
Module 5: Planning to Virtualize Workloads
Most organizations are looking for ways to decrease the cost and complexity of providing an information technology (IT) infrastructure. Virtualization has become a key component in developing an efficient and cost effective IT strategy. This module introduces some of the critical planning components that you must consider when you are implementing virtualization.
Module 6: Upgrading and Migrating Networking Services
Servers that run network services are responsible for facilitating communication between computers on your network, and ensuring that the configuration of network infrastructure components supports a reliable network environment. The two most common network infrastructure roles on Windows Servers are the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server role and the Domain Name System (DNS) server role. Upgrading and migrating these roles is a critical first step in the migration process to ensure that the rest of your migration project can use the network infrastructure.
In Windows Server 2012 R2, you can manage the DHCP and DNS server roles after or during migration with the new IP Address Management (IPAM) feature. IPAM enables you to centralize the management and monitoring of DHCP and DNS servers on your network. This module will explain the tools and processes that you can use to migrate DHCP and DNS server roles, and will show you how you can use IPAM to manage and monitor your DHCP and DNS servers.
Module 7: Upgrading and Migrating Server Roles
File servers and web servers are present in almost all corporate networks. You should consider the impact of these servers on your network, and how migrating to Windows Server 2012 can improve the functionality of file servers and web servers on your network. This module explains the migration considerations and the processes for migrating file servers and web servers.
Module 8: Upgrading and Migrating AD DS
This module explains how to prepare for migrating AD DS in Windows Server 2012. It also explains the tools that you can use to perform the migration. It then explains how to upgrade and restructure domain controllers.
Module 9: Migrating Additional Active Directory-Related Roles and Services
Access and Information Protection (AIP) management simplifies the user experience for online users while streamlining the administrative effort of IT departments. AIP management solutions are a set of technologies and products designed to help organizations manage user identities and associated access privileges by establishing a single authoritative source for user authentication. Windows Server provides a number of server roles for AIP management:
