This course teaches you how to deploy other AD server roles such as Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) and Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS).

Objective

• Install and configure domain controllers
• Manage objects in AD DS by using graphical tools and Windows PowerShell
• Implement AD DS in complex environments
• Implement AD DS sites, and configure and manage replication
• Implement and manage Group Policy Objects (GPOs)
• Manage user settings by using GPOs
• Secure AD DS and user accounts
• Implement and manage a certificate authority (CA) hierarchy with AD CS
• Deploy and manage certificates
• Implement and administer AD FS
• Implement and administer Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS)
• Implement synchronization between AD DS and Azure AD
• Monitor, troubleshoot, and establish business continuity for AD DS services

Target Audience

This course is primarily intended for existing IT professionals who have some AD DS knowledge and experience and who aim to develop knowledge about identity and access technologies in Windows Server 2016. This would typically include:

  • Active Directory administrators who are looking to train in identity and access technologies with Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2016
  • System or infrastructure administrators with general AD DS experience and knowledge who are looking to cross-train in core and advanced identity and access technologies in Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2016

The secondary audience for this course includes IT professionals who are looking to consolidate their knowledge about AD DS and related technologies, in addition to IT professionals who want to prepare for the 70-742 exam.
