Managing Networks with Windows Admin Center

by Glenn Weadock

This course will teach you how to keep Windows Server 2019 and 2016 running reliably, securely, and smoothly by using the new Windows Admin Center to manage servers, infrastructure, storage, security, and virtual machines from your browser.

What you'll learn

Server administrators never had an easy job, but COVID-era remote-work requirements make it even harder. In this course, Managing Networks with Windows Admin Center, you’ll learn to keep your servers running reliably, securely, and smoothly with the browser-based tool. First, you’ll explore how Windows Admin Center (WAC) interoperates with traditional consoles and how you can set it up on a gateway server or a local system. Next, you’ll discover methods for administering servers much as you would do with Server Manager, using extensions such as Active Directory and DNS. Finally, you’ll learn how to manage storage systems with WAC, connect to local and cloud-based virtual machines, and explore advanced WAC capabilities such as resource forecasting and packet monitoring. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of server maintenance and monitoring needed to ensure that your network infrastructure just works, day in and day out, as long as you have access to a browser.
