Part 3 of 3 in the Windows Server 2012 Installing and Configuring (70-410) series. This course centers on the installation and configuration of Windows Server 2012. There are upgraded features from older releases, like PowerShell which is quickly becoming a favorite over the command line tool. This is a course for those who have prior networking experience as well as those looking to take a step up from Server 2003, and 2008. This course may not provide complete coverage for the revised 70-410 exam. This course is scheduled for retirement once our complete new series for 70-410 is published. Please see for details.

Introduction to Group Policy
Welcome to TrainSignal. You're watching a lesson on Group Policy. Now speaking of Group Policy I need to tell you something here. We've got a lot of information to cover when it comes to Group Policy, so what I've done is I've broken apart this information into three different lessons, the first of which we're going to talk about right now, which is just a basic introduction to Group Policy, and in this introduction we're going to mostly just kind of go through the basic logistics and makeup of working with something called Group Policy Objects. Okay, so let's go ahead and just jump right in and see how Group Policy Objects work.

Working with Group Policy Exceptions
Welcome to TrainSignal. You're watching a lesson on Working with Group Policy Exceptions and I want to start off by emphasizing that there are two previous lessons that it's important that you watch them before this one, especially the one on implementing a Group Policy Infrastructure where we saw the actual process flow of LSDOU, and the reason it's important that you watch that lesson before this lesson is because in this lesson we're going to see how to break all the rules that we just learned about in that previous lesson. Now before we do I need to emphasize one thing and I need to emphasize it in a pretty big way. Everything I'm going to talk to you about in this lesson you should be using as the exception and I guess no real pun intended or I don't know if that's the right thing to say there because this is called working with exceptions, but they really should be the exception, not the norm. Okay, you want Group Policy Objects to flow in their normal, native way because every time you throw an exception in it's like throwing a monkey wrench into the system and troubleshooting becomes that much more difficult, but that said, let's go ahead and look at some of these exceptions.

Implementing Server Virtualization with Hyper-V
Welcome to TrainSignal. You're watching a lesson on Implementing Server Virtualization with Hyper-V. Virtualization. There's a buzz word for you. It's everywhere right, or how about the cloud right? These are things that you're going to have to get used to. It's not like if you've been doing this for a while, if you've been working with servers, going back for the last decade or two, things were a little bit more actual physical boxes, things are becoming more virtual now. Well Microsoft's version or I should say their implementation of virtualization is something called Hyper-V and so, in this lesson we're going to see how to implement Hyper-V using Windows Server 2012. Let's go take a look.

Installing Server Core
Welcome to TrainSignal. You're watching a lesson on Installing Server Core. Now I will tell you that this is something that I considered going over with you way back in the beginning of this entire course when we learned how to install Windows Server 2012 because you might remember back then that we saw that there's the GUI installation and a Server Core installation, but I chose to pull this aside as its own separate lesson, so that now that you see how to do everything with the GUI throughout this entire course doing all these different things you need to understand that in Windows Server 2012 not only can you do a much more simplified and much more stripped down, less resources utilized, type installation of the operating system, but with Microsoft's new implementation of remote management where pretty much you can be on any server, and when you're in that server manager it looks the same whether you're sitting at the actual server or if you're remotely managing another one. I want you to consider that Server Core may actually very quickly become the norm not the exception. Now let me stop talking about it here and let's actually go take a look at how to install it. Come on.
