Windows servers look similar to Windows clients at first glance, but servers do different things than clients, and this course explores those distinctions. In this course, Windows Server Administration Concepts: Server Roles, you will gain the ability to install and configure the more common roles provided with the Windows Server operating system. First, you will learn about how roles are different from features, and what administrative tools we can use to install and configure server roles. Next, you will discover details about file and print servers, application servers, Web servers, and remote access servers. Finally, you will transform a Windows server into a host of many other virtual machines and discover how to fine-tune the settings for each of those “guest” operating systems. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to select, install, and understand the many “hats” that Windows Server can wear, and you will be ready for further exploration of storage, Active Directory, performance, and maintenance in later courses. This course is part of a learning path that aligns with the objectives for the Microsoft Technology Associate certification track.
