At the heart of all networks, we have servers, and many of those networks run on Windows. In part 1 of this 2-part course, we'll begin exploring the basics of Windows Server administration on Windows Server 2008 R2. This will include hardware components, installation, and basic management of a Windows Server. You'll get a base foundation of knowledge in Windows Server. This course is designed for entry-level IT Pros and Developers. Some experience with Windows operating systems and networking will be helpful, but is not a requirement to be successful.
