Course Outline

Module 1: Implementing IPv4 Services
Windows networks rely heavily on the IPv4 protocol for the transmission of network data. As a network administrator, you must understand the functionality of IPv4. This module explains how to plan and troubleshoot IPv4-based networks to ensure a properly functioning network environment.

Module 2: Implementing Name Resolution by Using DNS
The DNS is the foundation name service in Windows Server 2012. It provides name resolution, and enables DNS clients to locate network services, such as Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain controllers, global catalog servers, and messaging servers. If you configure your DNS infrastructure poorly, or if DNS is not working correctly, these important network services will be inaccessible to your network servers and clients. This module explains how to deploy, configure, manage, and troubleshoot DNS.

Module 3: Implementing IPv6
IPv6 is a technology that helps the Internet support a growing user base and an increasingly large number of IP‑enabled devices. IPv4 has been the underlying Internet protocol for almost 30 years. Its robustness, scalability, and limited feature set is now challenged by the growing need for new IP addresses. This is largely because of the rapid growth of new network‑aware devices. This module explains how to implement coexistence between IPv4 and IPv6 networks and transition from an IPv4 network to an IPv6 network.

You can use Network Access Protection (NAP) to create customized health-requirement policies to validate the health of a computer before allowing it to access or communicate with a network. Additionally, NAP automatically updates compliant computers to ensure their ongoing compliance and limits the access of noncompliant computers to the restricted network until they become compliant.
This module explains how to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot NAP.

Module 8: Implementing Networking for Branch Offices
Branch offices can provide challenges for network administrators. When organizations have centralized infrastructure, such as database servers in a data center or file servers in the head office, access from branch offices is often limited because of the decreased network bandwidth of wide area network (WAN) connections.
This module explains the different ways that you can use Windows Server 2012 to overcome the limitations of branch office scenarios.

Windows Server 2012 provides a large set of features that you can use for network file access. You can use shared folders for different remote storage usage scenarios. You can use the Internet SCSI (iSCSI) capability in Windows Server 2012 to connect to remote iSCSI storage or configure Windows Server 2012 as an iSCSI storage host.
This module explains the key network file and data services available in Windows Server 2012. It also explains how to implement the network file and data services to address the network and remote storage needs of your organization.

Module 10: Implementing and Managing Networking in Hyper-V
Most companies are deploying almost all servers as virtual machines running on a physical host. Virtual machines are isolated even when they are running on the same Hyper-V host, and they communicate only over the network. Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 includes a completely redesigned and extensible virtual switch, which enables basic network packet forwarding, and also more advanced features such as support for network virtualization. As a Windows server administrator, it is important that you know how to configure the networking environment for the virtual machines and hosts. This module describes the networking components available in Hyper-V and describes how to configure these components.
