This course provides students with the knowledge
and skills to implement, manage, and maintain
a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 network infrastructure.
The course is intended for systems administrator
and systems engineer candidates who are responsible
for implementing, managing, and maintaining server
networking technologies. These tasks include implementing
routing; implementing, managing, and maintaining
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), Domain
Name System (DNS), and Windows Internet Name Service
(WINS); securing Internet Protocol (IP) traffic
with Internet Protocol security (IPSec) and certificates;
implementing a network access infrastructure by
configuring the connections for remote access
clients; and managing and monitoring network access.
After completing the course, students will be able to:
- Configure routing by using the Routing and Remote Access service.
- Allocate IP addressing by using DHCP.
- Manage and monitor DHCP.
- Resolve names.
- Resolve host names by using DNS.
- Manage and monitor DNS.
- Resolve network basic input/output system (NetBIOS) names by using WINS.
