I am currently studying for MD-100 exam, I have been using VMware-Pro and got Windows Server 2019 and Windows 10 Enterprise evaluation versions, getting hands on in my own virtual lab. My question - without taking full-blown certification course here on IT Pro TV, any recommendations on few hours of videos that can teach me basics of AD? Thanks
Recommendation for Windows Server courses here
That depends on what you mean by the "basics of AD". Do you want to create a domain controller, work with users and computer accounts or manage and apply group policy?
I would recommend looking at Identity with Windows Server 2016
Depending on what you want to learn, look at the first couple of episodes in that particular section.
If you have any specific questions, let me know. If you have a particular area of AD that you want more information on, let me know and I can point you to those episodes.
Mike thanks for the quick response. I am person that tutors at SPC College, (St Petersburg College), I already have vouchers for md-100 and md-101, just taking my sweet time on the md-101, I know Windows well enough, but really wanted to get better idea about Active Directory, I am going to check out your recommendation. I am going to coordinate likely in the Fall, if the corona virus thing is more manageable I am going to talk to Raja and folks there at ITPro TV I will take day off plan on coming down to tour the studio, hopefully you will be there! Keep up great work, I really enjoy watching your videos, great SME.
Hey Mike, the certification junkie I am, I went ahead and purchased the 70-742 voucher - the exam has been extended through January 2021, I get them at a good discount so went ahead ad purchased it. I am scheduled for October 3 to take exam, then MD-100 and shortly afterwards the MD-101. It helps me stay accountable buying the voucher. Now I will be watching all 3 of your courses. Thank you again.
I know about being a certification junkie, especially when the price is right!
Active Directory is a favorite of mine, so if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
We would love to have you visit, once it's safe of course!
