This show focuses on the second in a three exam series for Microsoft's MCSA Server 2016 and focuses on the networking features and functionality. It covers DNS, DHCP, and IPAM implementations, in addition to remote access solutions, such as VPN and Direct Access. It also covers DFS and BranchCache solutions, high performance network features and functionality, and implementation of software-defined networking (SDN) solutions, such as Hyper-V Network Virtualization (HNV) and Network Controller.

[MUSIC] Hello, and welcome to Networking with Windows Server 2016. This is the series where we're gonna go over the content, the objectives that are gonna help you prepare for that 70- 741 exam. What information is that and who wants to take this? Well, let's find out. Join me on my screen here. We're going to take a look at Microsoft's website, where I have it pulled up, Exam 70-741, again Networking with Windows Server 2016, and you can see the information that they have about the exam, and what we're going to be going over in this series. If we scroll down We'll see that the different domains that exist within this exam are gonna be implement domain name system, or DNS. 15 to 20% of the exam is gonna be that. Implementing DHCP and IPAM another 15 to 20% there. Implementing network connectivy and remote access solutions Twenty-five to thirty percent. A little heavy there. Implementing four and distributing network solutions 10 to 15 percent. And implementing an advanced network infrastructure 10 to 15 percent. So let's say you look at what we can find within these domains. We look at that first one implementing domain name system, or DNS, we're gonna talk about how do we go about getting the DNS installed. What kind of topologies do I want to use? How do I configure those DNS servers? How do we secure DNS? You know how do I use power shell to work with it implementing thing like DNS policies, DNS sec, DNS socket pull, some of the advance configurations within DNS? We also gonna look at how we create and configure DSN zones on those DNS servers. Set up replication, create a primary zone or secondary zones, active directory create and stub zones, all the all the records that we can create within those zones. A records, MX records, NS records. We are gonna talk and run about All of those. Then we'll move on to implementing DHCP and IPAM. DHCP, we can pass out that TCP IP configuration both IPv4 and IPv6 in Windows server 2016. We'll take a look at how we get that installed, how we get it configured, create our scopes, set up vault tolerance or replication with DHCP And then moving into IPAM or IP address management in a way we can centralize IP address management across our enterprise and then we'll move on into network connectivity and remote access solutions. We'll take a look at implementing things like network address translation, configuring routing, how do we set up VPN servers What are direct access servers, how does that differ from VPNs, how do we get that configured, setting up our network policy servers. So we can control who can or can't create those remote access connections. And then we're gonna move into implementing core and distributed network solutions. We need to understand our IPv4 as well as our IPv6 addressing schemes How to configure those, how to set those up, how to subnet those, and then doing things like distributed file system. Other branch office solutions like branch cache. We'll go over how to set that up. Then we'll move into the last domain, implementing an advanced network infrastructure. Here we're gonna take a look at, a high level look at some of our advanced technologies. Things like side scaling, QoS, data center bridging and also on the virtual side, virtual receive side scaling, virtual machine queuing, take a look at a few of those technologies. And we'll really talk about what they are, when and where I would want to implement those kinds of solutions. And then we'll round it off talking about software defined networking, understanding that Windows Server 2016 supports software defined networking, what components are available, and how we can go about configuring that. We have a lot of great examples as we get prepared for that example. So if you're preparing for the NCSA, then you're in the right place and hope you enjoy the rest of this series.
