The goal of this five-day, instructor-led course is to provide the knowledge required by system administrators, network administrators, and IT professionals who implement, manage, and troubleshoot existing network and server environments based on the Microsoft® Windows® 2000 operating system. These skills are generally required in medium to large organizations that maintain 200 to 26,000 user desktops and servers, spanning two to 100 physical locations by using local area networks (LANs) and the Internet or intranets. Additionally, this course provides the skills and knowledge that Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA) certification candidates need to prepare for Microsoft Certified Professional Exam 70-218: Managing a Microsoft Windows 2000 Network Environment.
This course is intended for system administrators, network administrators, and IT Professionals who focus on performing desktop and server installation and configuration tasks, and network and operating system management tasks in a Windows environment.
