Mikael Nystrom

In this training, you learn to deploy, configure and maintain Windows Server 2016 for various real-world scenarios. You start with a set of PowerShell scripts (no worries: this course isn't about PowerShell) and the Windows Server 2016 ISO, and in the end of the training you have a full infrastructure running.

You learn to build domain controllers, file servers, remote desktop servers, advanced networking, Hyper-V, storage spaces direct, and much more. In just 3 days you learn almost every part of Windows Server 2016.

Mikael has developed the lab based on real-life experience when building Private Clouds and Datacenters

You will receive all the scripts so that you can rerun all the exercises when you get back from training, or modify them so that they can be used in your environment.

#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 like Project “Honolulu”.

We don’t cover topics that are now obsolete, like deploying NANO server, since that has been refocused, nor do we do Direct Access since that has been deprecated and a few other things 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?
