CompTIA Server+ 2009: IT Environment

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.


A well managed network relies on accurate documentation, well designed policies, and efficient procedures. Understanding how to create good documentation, policies, and procedures can help ensure that a network is well run and that it can withstand the occasional crisis. Implementing these concepts at the server level is an excellent place to begin. This course covers the documentation, policies, and procedures that are the most necessary to server architecture. It provides a description of what each one is and how to go about creating the various elements. Along with good documentation, a well planned design of server space is key to a well managed network. The proper physical environment for optimal operation along with the physical security measures that should be put in place are also described in this course.
The course maps to CompTIA’s Server+ exam, SK0-003, and covers the following exam objectives: 4.1 Write, utilize, and maintain documentation, diagrams, and procedures; 4.2 Given a scenario, explain the purpose of industry best practices; 4.3 Determine an appropriate physical environment for the server location; 4.4 Implement and configure different methods of server access; 4.5 Given a scenario, classify physical security measures for a server location.
