Planning for Windows Server 2008 Servers - Course 6430


This 3-day course is intended for IT pros who are interested in the knowledge and skills necessary to plan a Windows Server 2008 operating system infrastructure. This course is aimed at server administrators and is not a how-to course; therefore, it has a significant number of planning exercises with less focus on hands-on exercises than some courses.
