Speed Learn Microsoft Windows Server 2016!

This course is designed for speed learning Server 2016. The course is broken down into bite-size, manageable chunks. Most of the video tutorials are less than 5 minutes long. Any tutorial over 5 minutes comes with a lab file to easily follow along with.

Open your virtual machine, follow along using a short, very concise video tutorial, move on to the next video, repeat. 


Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Part I is a follow-on for my Server 2012 courses, Parts I & II. Therefore, it is highly recommended anyone contemplating signing up for this course first complete both of my Server 2012 courses or have a good background working with Server 2012.

I did my best not to go over material covered in Server 2012, such as DNS. Most of the material covered in this course is unique and adds value to what was learned in both my Server 2012 courses.

This course is for those needing to become familiar with Server 2016, building and maintaining a Microsoft Server 2016 network from the ground up. In this first part, students will learn how to install and configure Windows Server 2016 just as they would as a network administrator or networking consultant.

This course trains the student to install, configure and manage the most common roles and services found on a Microsoft 2016 network. Part II of the course will introduce the more advanced roles and features offered in Server 2016.
