Prepare for Liftoff

Microsoft Networking with Windows Server 2016

Microsoft Server 2016, formerly called Microsoft Server Next, was engineered to facilitate network-based applications. Five years after it was introduced to the market, it still has lasting relevance for having two containers that allowed enhanced isolation and virtual machines. Another commendable feature that it offers is the Hyper-V snapshot in replacement with production checkpoints. By using such, administrators may easily transport a VM back without the need to retrieve previous data. With this, networking is made more accessible and more manageable.

About the Course

The course aims to impart the necessary knowledge for deploying, configuring, designing, and supporting Windows Server 2016 in any organization, be it commercial or non-profit ventures. As course takers progress through the tutorial, they will then be introduced to topics including the TCP/IP fundamentals, remote access technologies, and other related topics such as Software Defined Networking.

In line with the MSCA: Windows Server 2016 certification, this tutorial also covers the contents that usually show up in the Microsoft exam 70-741. With this, IT professionals are equipped with substantial insights for proper network management and those who are interested in taking the Microsoft examination.

Who is this course for

The exam contents were specifically crafted for:

  • It professionals wanting to acquire additional knowledge in network operations and implementation
  • Network administrators in need of skill upgrades and are looking for new sets of learning geared towards networking technology and functionality of Windows Server 2016.
  • It professionals and other interested parties who are preparing for the Microsoft 70-741 Examination 

Course Prerequisites and Skills to be developed

While anyone who wants to pursue IT-related employment may enroll in this course, the contents were made particularly for those who have substantial experience in network-related performance and tasks. Course takers must also possess technical know-how about the 2016 version's features. Lastly, adequate knowledge about DNS, DHCP, IPAM, and other related topics such as VPN and RADIUS is needed. As for its objectives, this tutorial expects course takers to demonstrate a proper understanding of DHCP and IPAM enough to implement them. Seamless deployment of core and distributed network solutions is also expected from  course takers, all while showcasing sufficient knowledge about Domain Name System, Remote Access Solutions, and Advanced Network Infrastructure design principles.

IP Addressing

The introductory part covers IPv4 and IPv6 planning and  implementation. Their fundamentals and aspects of networking are contextualized, making the discussion more focused on their structure, subnets, and default gateways.

IPv4 Hosts

The second part of the series gets a closer look at IPv4 and IPv6, focusing on related configurations, tools, and troubleshooting. While doing so, course takers are guaranteed to acquire essential insights about necessary transitions, complexities, and how to deal with the best.


DHCP and TCPIP applications are the central topics of this tutorial, with discussions rendered in both manual and automatic configurations. It then covers the best practices that may be  implemented to ensure that a network is getting all the system’s benefits and is devoid of error.


This section focuses on the basics of name resolution, discussing the concept of IP addresses  and their relation with systems. After doing so, DNS, its functions, technicalities, and traits are thoroughly discussed.

Active Directory

This tutorial discusses a comprehensive step-by-step process of integrating Active Directory before going to a more complex lesson about Advanced Name Resolution. And finally, it takes course takers to other topics such as DNS troubleshooting.

Address Management

With the help of the preceding lessons, course takers are now ready to implement and manage IP Addresses. This course talks about the proper integration of domain services and policy server roles so that course takers may manage networks and deploy digital spaces with lesser rough points.

Remote Access

Remote Access is put under thorough review in this tutorial. An overview is provided before discussing its technicality, such as Web Application Proxy. Lastly, VPNs and other related concepts are also discussed.

Branch Office Network

Installation and Configuration are the focus of this section, in which features are discussed to make them effective for office networking. It then provides a separate discussion about network solutions for unexpected and relatively harmful digital circumstances.

Network Features

The final lesson runs course takers through other features that may be of great advantage for IT professionals and administrators to wrap the series up. Included in the list are SMB 3.1, Hyper-V enhancements, and switch functionality.
