Overview

This 3-day course is intended for IT pros who are interested in the knowledge and skills necessary to plan a Windows Server 2008 operating system infrastructure. This course is aimed at server administrators and is not a “how-to” course; therefore, it has a significant number of planning exercises with less focus on hands-on exercises than some courses.

The course content and exercises direct you toward making decisions and providing guidance to others. This course reflects the decision-making tasks that a server administrator undertakes.
