While installing Windows Server and Server Core might not seem the most exciting of topics, you might be surprised at just how automated the process can get.
In this course, Installing Windows Server 2019, you won't just explore the Next-Next-Finish of installing a copy of Windows Server 2019. First, you'll explore the new -- and in some cases, the old -- tools and techniques for greatly automating this otherwise-manual process. Next, you'll discover the far more useful offline, command line, and PowerShell approaches. The extra tools might take a little extra time up-front, but they greatly pay off down the road. Finally, you'll prepare your own custom Windows Server images, to start your Windows Servers off just a bit further down the road towards their final configuration. By the end of this course, you'll know how to install Windows Server 2019 using the graphical interface and command line automations.
Course Overview Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you've found another of my courses in this learning path called Windows Server 2019, this time on the tasks on technologies in installing Windows Server. I am author evangelist, and a fulltime author here at Pluralsight, and I've been installing Windows Server since well back in the days of Windows for Workgroups version 3.1. While installing Windows Server and Server Core might not seem the most exciting of topics, our conversation here will focus on the new, and in some cases the old, tools and techniques for greatly automating the process. In this course, I won't just show you the next-next finish of installing a copy of Windows Server; I'll introduce you to the far more useful offline, command line, and PowerShell approaches. All of these might take a little extra time up front, but they greatly pay off down the road. I'll also help you prepare your own custom Windows Server images to start your newly built Windows Servers off just a bit further down the road towards their final configuration. If you've just been tasked with installing Windows Server 2019 on a handful or 1000 machines, this course is your first stop in brushing up on those skills for success. And then from here, you'll be ready to continue on a learning path as you explore storage, Hyper-V virtualization, containers, high availability, and the maintenance and monitoring of your Windows Server environment. Let's get started.
