Introduction
6m 18s
Installing Windows Server 2016 might not seem the most exciting of topics, but move past the next, next, finish and there's incredible depth in automating this otherwise-mundane task. In this course, you won't just see the "Next-Next-Finish" of installing a copy of Windows Server, but you'll learn a myriad of new installation approaches. First, you'll learn about offline installation. Next, you'll explore the command line and PowerShell approaches. Finally, you'll take a look at the Desired State Configuration approach. All of these might take a little extra time up-front, but they greatly pay off down the road. By the end of this course, you will have the knowledge of PowerShell, Desired State Configuration, and even some of the WinPE and DISM commands that you'll need for rapid deployment of Windows Server 2016.
