CompTIA Server+ 2009: System Hardware

Being a good server administrator means that you understand your systems from the ground up – both the software and the hardware. Today's server hardware is sophisticated and specialized to support multiple users, applications and processors, as well as provide fault tolerant, highly available services. This course begins the look at server hardware architecture, starting with server system boards, chassis, memory, and the brain of the server – the CPU. The course also describes the various types of expansion cards and the supporting architectures and explains when and why you would upgrade and configure your system's firmware. The course maps to CompTIA's Server+ exam, SK0-003, and covers the following exam objectives: 1.4 Explain the importance of a Hardware Compatibility List (HCL); 1.1 Differentiate between system board types, features, components, and their purposes; 1.2 Deploy different chassis types and the appropriate components; 1.3 Differentiate between memory features/types and given a scenario select appropriate memory; 1.5 Differentiate between processor features/types and given a scenario select the appropriate processor; 1.6 Given a scenario, install appropriate expansion cards into a server while taking fault tolerance into consideration; and 1.7 Install, update, and configure appropriate firmware.

Learning Objectives
  • Identify the importance of a hardware compatibility list
  • Match components of a motherboard with their corresponding purposes
  • Match chassis types with their corresponding purposes
  • Distinguish between different types of RAM
  • Recognize compatibility issues that must be considered when installing additional memory
  • Match chip processing methods with their corresponding characteristics
  • Identify characteristics of modern processors
  • Determine the appropriate server form factor based on a scenario
  • Determine the appropriate system memory installation based on a scenario
  • Determine the appropriate processor given a scenario
  • Match motherboard features with their corresponding descriptions
  • Identify steps for installing an expansion card
  • Recognize appropriate actions to take when upgrading firmware
  • Distinguish between firmware and the BIOS
  • Recognize the procedure for configuring firmware options
  • Install appropriate expansion cards
  • Perform a firmware upgrade

CompTIA Server+ 2009: System Software

To take full advantage of expensive server hardware, a full featured network operating system (NOS) should be employed. Network operating systems provide vital services, such as e-mail, file sharing, DHCP, DNS, and other necessary components of a functional enterprise network. This course covers the different types of network operating systems, including Windows NOS and UNIX/Linux flavors. It also describes the basic and advanced configurations to make the NOS useable. One of the most important aspects of NOS software – security – is also covered in this course along with user and resource management tasks. The course maps to CompTIA's Server+ 2009, SK0-003, and covers the following exam objectives: 2.1 Install, deploy, configure, and update NOS (Windows / *nix); 2.2 Explain NOS security software and its features; and 2.3 Given a scenario, implement and administer NOS management features based on procedures and guidelines.

Learning Objectives
  • Determine the best network operating system for a given organization
  • Identify characteristics that are common to all network operating systems
  • Distinguish between the key file systems for use with a network operating system
  • Match installation methods with reasons why you would choose them
  • Recognize the procedure for installing a network operating system
  • Identify tasks that are performed after the installation of a network operating system
  • Match server roles to their corresponding uses
  • Determine the appropriate network operating system and file system to install on a given server
  • Install a network operating system
  • Recognize steps to perform after installing an NOS
  • Identify features of network operating system security software
  • Recognize the process for adding users to a network
  • Identify the key network user management tasks and responsibilities
  • Match resource management tasks to their corresponding descriptions
  • Create a baseline report using the System Monitor tool
  • Recognize how Windows Management Instrumentation can be used as a system monitoring tool
  • Add users to a network
  • Set user permissions
  • Create a baseline report using the System Monitor tool

CompTIA Server+ 2009: Server Functions and Network Essentials

A network may have many servers on it, each playing a unique role. In order for a server to do its job properly, it must have the proper hardware and software installed. A server may be performing a network service, such as DNS or DHCP, serving applications such as e-mail, or providing network security as in the case of a firewall or authentication server. The administrator must be familiar with each of the potential roles and how they will impact each other and the users they serve. This course introduces the various server roles and discusses the possible benefits of using virtualization. The course also explains the technologies used to add servers to your network. This course maps to CompTIA's Server+ 2009 exam, SK0-003, and covers the following exam objectives: 2.4 Explain different server roles, their purpose and how they interact; 2.5 Summarize server virtualization concepts, features and considerations; and 2.6 Describe common elements of networking essentials.

Learning Objectives
  • Match server roles with their purposes
  • Recognize considerations when shutting down a server
  • Recognize benefits of virtualization
  • Match types of virtual machines with corresponding purposes
  • Recognize the key considerations when setting up a virtual machine
  • Determine a server's role in a network
  • Shut down a server
  • Launch the wizard for setting up a virtual machine
  • Recognize key facts about Ethernet
  • Recognize key facts about TCP/IP
  • Recognize key facts about routing with TCP/IP
  • Configure TCP/IP options
  • Recognize the appropriate network security topology, for a given scenario
  • Recognize the roles of various networking security topologies
  • Configure a server's Internet connections
  • Determine the most appropriate network security topology

CompTIA Server+ 2009: Storage

Because so much work is done electronically, businesses and governments generate vast amounts of information, most of which needs to be kept available and safe. Storage technologies have improved with the growth of data requirements. This course introduces the technologies involved in storing and protecting this data and the different types of storage media, such as optical media, and describes the increased reliance on hard disks for permanent, secure data storage. As well, it discusses the technology behind RAID arrays and the various types of storage architectures. The course maps to CompTIA's Server+ exam, SK0-003, and covers the following exam objectives: 3.1 Describe RAID technologies and its features and benefits; 3.2 Given a scenario, select the appropriate RAID level; 3.3 Install and configure different internal storage technologies; and 3.4 Summarize the purpose of external storage technologies.

Learning Objectives
  • Recognize the appropriate storage device in a given scenario
  • Match storage protocols with their descriptions
  • Recognize tips for configuring SCSI
  • Match RAID technologies with corresponding features and benefits
  • Determine the appropriate RAID level given a scenario
  • Match storage architectures with situations when they would be used
  • Recognize the features and benefits of iSCSI
  • Determine the appropriate storage strategy for a given company
