IT Pro Training

Mikael Nystrom

In this training, you learn how to deploy, configure, maintain, and troubleshoot Windows Server 2019. The training is extensive and covers almost all aspects of Windows Server 2019. You learn what’s new and updated but also common and best practices for handling legacy components in Windows Server 2019.

You learn to build domain controllers, file servers, remote desktop servers, advanced networking, Hyper-V, Storage Spaces Direct, Storage Replica, Failover Cluster, bare metal deployment, migration, upgrading, monitoring, Windows Admin Center, and more. In just four days you learn almost every part of Windows Server 2019.

You use PowerShell and/or UI to deploy and configure all servers and systems. You basically start with nothing, and after four days, you have it all installed and configured.

Hands-on labs and modules but only the ones that have your interest:

Over 60 percent of the time you spend in class is dedicated to hands-on-labs and exercises, based on self-perceived real-life scenarios and methods verified to work in production environments.
The training is based on modules, so you can pick and choose the parts you like and skip parts you don’t find interesting. The lab will be just the way you want it! Mikael has developed the lab based on real-world experience building private clouds, data center fabrics, and traditional enterprise environments.

And the best part, you receive all the scripts and sample files so that you can rerun all the exercises when you get back from training or modify them for use in your environment. We will even include a solution that will build up the complete lab environment once returned home from the training.

#1 FAQ:

How does this compare to the "standard MSFT MOC" 5-day curriculum and can I get certified after this?

Well, we cover everything that is “important” and that is about 75% of the training. However, the course covers items that are NOT covered in the MOC training, like how to do this in the real world and new tools to manage Windows Server where the Server dev team is working on.

We don’t cover topics that have made obsolete or other topics that nobody uses for good reasons.

The real question is: do you want to have a check-box that says PASS or do you need the Skills?
