Agenda

Enterprise administrators are involved in various aspects of infrastructure design. One of these areas includes planning the IP addressing scheme and name resolution strategy. This course covers the key IPv4 and IPv6 characteristics, advantages, and drawbacks, so that administrators are able to plan an appropriate addressing approach. The course outlines the IPv4 and IPv6 technologies needed for IP version coexistence and eventual migration to IPv6 addressing. The course also examines the key characteristics of the DNS server role, namespace design, and zone design that the enterprise administrator should consider in their plan and to determine what backward compatibility must be provided. The course covers the objectives for Microsoft exam 70-647 PRO: Windows Server 2008, Enterprise Administrator. Passing the prerequisite MCTS exams and this Professional Series exam completes the requirements for the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator certification.

  • distinguish between AD-integrated DNS and non-AD-integrated DNS
  • install DNS server
  • plan and implement a DNS namespace design for an enterprise
  • plan DNS server implementations
  • plan DNS zone implementations
  • optimize DNS zone design
  • enable interoperability between DNS and WINS
  • recognize how interoperability works between DNS and HOSTS files
  • integrate DNS and WINS
  • recognize methods for adapting IPv4 to Internet expansion
  • recognize the basics of how IPv6 works
  • recognize which IPv6 transition mechanism to implement based on the network infrastructure
  • recognize the design goals of IPv6 stateless autoconfiguration
  • recognize key issues between Windows Server 2008 DHCP server role and stateful configuration using DHCPv6
  • configure DHCP server role and DHCPv6 to provide stateful IPv6 configuration
  • deploy DHCP server role and DHCPv6 to provide stateful IPv6 configuration
When planning the enterprise infrastructure, it is important to consider the needs of external users and clients to access the corporate domain, resources, and services. This course outlines the key technologies to consider when designing the external network access strategy. Included is a look at the remote access abilities provided by Windows Server 2008's Network Policy and Access Services role, which consist of the Routing and Remote Access, Network Policy Server, and Network Access Protection role services. The course discusses recommendations for Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections, such as authentication protocols, tunnel types, and authorization mechanisms. The course also outlines considerations for server or domain isolation and the design of a perimeter network, including the role of the ISA Server in providing secure access to Web server resources and internal network services, such as e-mail and domain name resolution. This course covers the objectives for Microsoft exam 70-647 PRO: Windows Server 2008, Enterprise Administrator. Passing the prerequisite MCTS exams and this Professional Series exam completes the requirements for the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator certification.
  • install and configure the Routing and Remote Access service using Server Manager
  • recognize Windows Server 2008's VPN support
  • configure IPv6 routing
  • choose the appropriate VPN tunneling protocol for a given scenario
  • install and enable the RRAS server role when configuring Windows Server 2008 as an SSL VPN server
  • recognize key aspects of perimeter network design
  • set up remote access in Windows Server 2008
  • recognize how to design a perimeter network
  • recognize key characteristics of NAP
  • install NPAS with NPS server role services and configure NPS for remote VPN connections
  • recognize the advantages of an isolated network
  • recognize how to implement server isolation
  • configure NPS for remote VPN connections
One of the administrative tasks to consider when making network design and infrastructure plans is the business's requirements for application availability, deployment, and management. This can involve the need to make desktop environments or individual applications available to remote users or clients, deciding on the method to use for distribution of application packages, or determining the need for and type of an application management product to implement. This course covers the Windows Server 2008 Terminal Services role that offers remote desktop and application access, including the capabilities provided by TS Licensing, TS RemoteApp, TS Web Access, TS Gateway, and TS Session Broker role services. It also covers options for deploying application packages to users or computers through AD DS Group Policy and a look at management using specialized System Center products such as System Center Configuration Manager 2007 and System Center Essentials 2007. The course covers the objectives for Microsoft exam 70-647 PRO: Windows Server 2008, Enterprise Administrator. Passing the prerequisite MCTS exams and this Professional Series exam completes the requirements for the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator certification.

Enterprise Administrators must be knowledgeable about the features and benefits virtualization technologies have to offer and how these technologies can help them reduce costs and administrative resources. This course covers key virtualization techniques that can be implemented in the enterprise infrastructure, concentrating on server and application virtualization. This includes virtual server consolidation using Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V functionality, as well as the management products available to configure the virtual servers and centrally manage their performance. The course also provides a look at application virtualization solutions provided by Windows Server 2008, including an overview of the Microsoft SoftGrid Application Virtualization Platform and how it is used to provide a virtual deployment of applications in your enterprise. The course covers the objectives for Microsoft exam 70-647 PRO: Windows Server 2008, Enterprise Administrator. Passing the prerequisite MCTS exams and this Professional Series exam completes the requirements for the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator certification.

The enterprise administrator involved in the design or restructuring of a Windows Server 2008 Active Directory infrastructure must have a good understanding of the Active Directory Directory Services (AD DS) – both the logical and physical components. This course covers the key logical AD DS design considerations, including the characteristics and number of forests and domains to implement, the choice of functional levels to configure, updating the Active Directory schema, and the options for establishing trust between multiple forests. It also outlines guidelines for designing the site topology composed of Active Directory site, site link, and site link bridge objects, as well as recommendations for the optimal placement of domain controllers and server roles in the enterprise infrastructure.
