Lab 1a Virtual install of Server 2012 using VMWare Player
This this first lab of the course, students will create a virtual install of Server 2012 r2 full install. These first three labs are the foundation for all labs to follow. It is imperative students successfully complete this first series of three labs.
Lab 1b Creating a Windows 7 Pro Virtual Machine Using VMWare Player
Lab 1b adds a virtual Windows 7 machine to your lab. The Windows 7 Virtual install will be use to add a client to your 2012 R2 domain and to confirm the services and features you add to your 2012 network work as advertised. It is imperative students successfully complete this second lab. The Windows 7 client will be added to the domain in Section 2 of the course after our main install of Server 2012 has been converted to a domain controller.
Lab 1c Installing Server 2012 Core
Lab 1c installs Windows Server 2012 Core. When installed as a core (default option),the server not only has a smaller footprint, but also needs less patching. For lab users and testers of Server 2012 r2, this type of installation saves in storage space. Especially useful when SSDs are never large enough to contain all your VMs.
Preparing Server 2012 for DNS and DHCP
In this video, students learn how to prepare a Windows Server for the DNS and DHCP roles.
Lab 2a Installing and Configuring DNS on Server 2012 R2
Lab 2a installs the Domain Name System (DNS) on your fresh install of Server 2012. DNS translates domain names into IP addresses. DNS is required to be present before we can install Active directory and create our first and only domain controller needed for this series of lab. DNS is one of the easiest and simplest 2012 features to install. When combined with DHCP (dynamic DNS) it eases the administration of having to add clients to the network and creating the needed DNS records.
The DNS Server service in Windows Server 2012 uses a special zone named GlobalNames to provide resolution of single-label names.
Lab 2b Installing and Configuring Active Directory Part I
Lab 2a installs and Active Directory Directory Service onto our Server 2012. This is the process needed to install Active Directory (AD) is a directory service that Microsoft developed for Windows domain networks. It is included in most Windows Server operating systems as a set of processes and services. Initially, Active Directory was only in charge of centralized domain management. Think of AD as a
centralized location for managing all users, permissions, security settings, machines and more on our Windows 2012 r2 domain.
In Part II of this video, we promote our virtual install of Server 2012 to a domain controller.
Lab 2c Adding Windows 7 Client to a Server 2012 Domain
Adding a Windows 7 client machine is easy enough to do but there are some limitations. The Windows Home version of any Windows workstation cannot be added to a Windows domain.
Lab 2d Join Server 2012 R2 Core to a Domain
Lab 2d picks up where lab 1c left off. Server Core uses the sonfig.cmd utility for configuring the server to see the network and join the domain. Though this utility and the network configuration of Server 2012 Core is intuitive, there are several considerations this lab presents that meed to taken into the consideration.
In this lab, student learn how to create a Read Only Domain controller (RODC) and how they can be best utilized. RODC's have three distinct advantages over a normal domain controller, security, manageability and availability.
Lab 3g Switching Between a Full GUI Install and Server Core
In the lab, students learn how to switch between a Server 2012 Full install with GUI and Server 2012 minimal install and Server core.
This PowerShell quiz covers some of the possible exam scenarios student might encounter on the 70-410 exam.
Lab 3a Creating and Managing a Custom MMC Snapin
In this lab, students learn how to create a custom MMC snapin. Custom MMC snapins provides a convenient method for managing Windows Servers and the services they provide. Having one “dashboard” from which to manage Active Directory, Group Policy, DNS, DHCP, WSUS, WDS, and other services provides speed, simplicity, and a bit of self-documentation for whatever you have running on your server.
Lab 3b Creating and Managing Objects in Active Directory
In this lab, students will learn to create and manage users, groups , containers and computers and locate these objects in Active Directory.
You can use this procedure to compact the Active Directory database offline. Offline defragmentation returns free disk space in the Active Directory database to the file system. As part of the offline defragmentation procedure, check directory database integrity.
Lab 6a Disable the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration (IE ESC)
In Lab 6a, students learn how to disable the annoying Enhanced Security Configuration for Internet Explorer. This malware like feature maybe useful for some servers, however if you want to use IE for normal web
browsing, it is desired to turn this security feature off.
Lab 4a Install and Configure FRSM on Server 2102
In this lab, students will install and configure the File Server Resource Manager (FRSM) on Server 2012 R2. File Server Resource Manager is a set of features that allow you to manage and classify data stored on file servers. The FSRM gives you greater control allowing you to block file types (file screening), create quotas and generate storage reports.
Lab 4b FSRM Initial Configuration
In this lab, students will configure their File Server Resource Manager (FRSM) installed in Lab 4a.
Lab 4c Configuring FSRM Quota Management
In this lab, students will learn to configure the File Server Resource Manager Quota Management. By using File Server Resource Manager to create a quota for a volume or folder, you can limit the disk space allocated for it.
Lab 4d Configuring FSRM File Screening
In this lab, students will learn to configure FSRM File Screening. File Screening Management allows you to create file screens to block types of file from being saved on a volume or in a folder tree.
Lab 5a Implementing Group Policy in Windows Server 2012
In Lab 5a, Students create a working group policy object that denies domain users access to the control panel when logging onto the domain. This prevents normal users from accessing to sensitive areas of their PC.
Lab 5b Fine-Grained Password Policy in Windows Server 2012
In lab 5b, we see how we can create different password policies inside a single domain. This means we can have complex passwords for our admins, not so complex passwords for our users, and extremely complex passwords for our enterprise admins in the same domain.
Lab 5c Configure Folder Redirection in Window Server 2012 R2
In this lab, students will learn to redirect a user’s My Documents and Desktop folder to a file server for backup and high availability.
In this lab, students learn how to create a mapped drive using Group Policy and then assigning the mapped drive to a specific container inside of our Active Directory
Lab 6 Configuring and Managing IPv6 for Server 2012 r2
In this lab, students will configure their 3 node network for IPv6 addressing. Microsoft has a strong history of supporting IPv6 unfortunately for the unwary, they still have some work a head of them. Microsoft supports IPv6 in Server 2012 but it could be said they support the Microsoft version of IPv6 and not the industry standard.
This lab will provide students with an overview of the IPv6 capabilities in Server 2012 r2 and highlight some potential areas of concern. I won't be going into too much detail about what IPv6 is or how it works but the lab does link to a IPv6 primer.
One main issue is the lack of any real support for configuring IPv6 on Server Core. The sconfig utility does not allow the use of IPv6 so we are left with PowerShell which is fine as long as you can figure out the correct syntax. Google should be your go to source.
There are other documented issues with Microsoft and IPv6 mainly with third party hardware such as routers and firewalls. There are registry hacks for clients and servers to help get IPv6 working.
The other issue is the total lack of support for mapping network devices and shares using IPv6. The UNC path for a share does not understand IPv6 addressing and treats the letters and the colons as separate drive letters. Microsoft does have a work around.
This is the most difficult lab of the course. The Server Core portion is what makes this so. If you try and run through the lab, you will crash and burn and experience a feeling best described as 'epic failure.' Slow and steady wins the race! Again, take your time with this lab. Use Google to find a work around and don't forget the the basics of troubleshooting network connectivity.
Lab 7a Installing and Configuring DHCP on Server 2012 R2
Lab 7a installs and configures the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) on our virtual Server 2012 r2 for both IPv4 and Ipv6. DHCP is a client/server protocol that automatically provides an Internet Protocol (IP) host with its IP address and other related configuration information such as the subnet mask and default gateway to domain clients.
Lab 7b Manage DHCP Failover in Server 2012 R2
Lab 7b configures DHCP for high availability using DHCP failover. In this lab, DHCP failover is configured between Server Core and Server 2012 r2 full. DHCP failover in Windows Server 2012 is a method for ensuring continuous availability of DHCP service to clients.
