Designing a Name Resolution Solution
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. Tim Warner here welcoming you to the module entitled, Designing a Name Resolution Solution. Here's what we have on deck for this module. We're going to understand a bit about DNS, not the fundamentals so much as what we need to consider from a system architects point of view, in terms of planning DNS server placement, DNS zones and zone hierarchy, and planning for delegated administration. We'll also take a look at the global name zone, which gives us single-label name resolution and the where�s and why's and heretofore's involved in that decision to deploy global name zone, and then third and finally we'll look at storing DNS zone data in a custom active directory application directory partition, why you would do this, what business benefit it conveys, and actually how to get the job done. Remember that the exam 70-413 covers mostly the design principles, but you still need to know how to do the work at the end of the proverbial day. Let's get started.

Securing DNS
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. Tim Warner here welcoming you to the module entitled Securing DNS. In this module we'll focus on the critical network service known as the Domain Name System or DNS. Of course, we're going to need to cover the relevant exam objectives. First of all, we need to understand in sort of a lightening round fashion what are the built-in security related settings for the Windows DNS server. Next, we'll look at what cache locking is and how to configure it. Third, we'll do implementing socket pooling and finally, you need to understand just the very basics of the DNS security extensions or DNSSEC. This is actually some really good information beyond just covering the exam objectives and I'll get into why in just a moment. Let's get started.

Designing an IP Address Management Solution
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner and this module is entitled Designing an IP Address Management Solution. In this module we'll approach the topic of IPAM in three parts. First, I'm going to make sure that you understand IPAM. Now you may have already taken my colleague Greg's 70-412 course here in the Pluralsight library, in which case you understand the technology already and you're probably thinking Tim, how are you going to add value here? Well the value that I add here in the 413 skill set is that again, we're looking at IPAM from a design standpoint, from an architecture standpoint, so we'll do an IPAM quick review. Consider it a sort of lightening round. Designing and deploying IPAM does have a number of gotchas, as well as good solid business benefits. We'll cover all of those and in the demo I'll actually run an installation of IPAM because we're going to need the service up and running for what we'll do in the following module. Finally, we'll introduce the role-based access control, also called RBAC, security model that's included in IPAM. In all of Microsoft's private cloud services there's heavy use of role-based access control because it provides a flexible framework for using the IT security principle of least privilege and giving administrators and even non-administrators delegated access to your IPAM solution. Let's get started.

Managing an IP Address Management Solution
Hi there and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner and this module is entitled Managing an IP Address Management Solution. Here's what we'll be covering in this module. We're going to dive deeper into the IPAM delegated administration model that I told you about in the previous module. Those of you who plan to pass the 70-413 certification exam absolutely need to understand what's involved in that particular feature of IPAM. We'll also spend quite a bit of time in the IPAM client console connected to the IPAM server where we can manage and monitor DHCP and DNS servers. We'll look at actually horsing around with the servers, as well as looking at the auditing features and, as I said, how that ties in with delegated administration. Here's the formal bullet point that reminds us to cover IPAM auditing fo sho, as they say, and we'll complete with some very useful information on how to integrate IPAM with System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 R2, that also is a hot exam topic for both the 413 and the 414 exams. Let's get started.
