The bonus lessons in the Windows Server 2008 Active Directory (70-640) series will show you hands-on how to administer Active Directory using Windows Server 2008. You'll walk away from the course able to install and configure Active Directory, create and manage Active Directory and Group Policy objects, deploy software and manage permissions with Group Policy, create sites, and manage backup, replication, security and more. To get the most out of this course, you should have a solid foundation in networking. Some experience with Windows Server will be helpful, but is not required.

Active Directory Recycle Bin Welcome to TrainSignal. You're watching a lesson on the Active Directory Recycle Bin. In this lesson, we're going to start off by talking about the requirements necessary to have and use the Active Directory Recycle Bin. And then I'm going to go in and show you how to enable the Active Directory Recycle Bin and then restore deleted Active Directory objects, of course, using the Active Directory Recycle Bin. Now, first of all, when it comes to requirements, there really is nothing super special. I put this here because I want to make sure that you understand that this is a feature of Windows Server 2008 R2. I need to emphasize that this is an R2 feature. All domain controllers in the forest must be running Windows Server 2008 R2, and the reason why is because all domain functional levels must be raised to Windows Server 2008 R2 so that the forest function level can be raised to Windows Server 2008 R2. Now, I say that the forest must be raised to Windows Server 2008 R2 assuming that you're not currently running at that level. If you are, then there's nothing else you have to do. If you installed Windows Server 2008 R2 from the beginning and you already had your functional level there, you're done. You've met those requirements. When I say you have to raise it, that's if you are currently at a lower level.
