CompTIA Server+ 2009: Server Functions and Network Essentials
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
A network may have many servers on it, each playing a unique role. In order for a server to do its job properly, it must have the proper hardware and software installed. A server may be performing a network service, such as DNS or DHCP, serving applications such as e-mail, or providing network security as in the case of a firewall or authentication server. The administrator must be familiar with each of the potential roles and how they will impact each other and the users they serve. This course introduces the various server roles and discusses the possible benefits of using virtualization. The course also explains the technologies used to add servers to your network.
This course maps to CompTIA’s Server+ 2009 exam, SK0-003, and covers the following exam objectives: 2.4 Explain different server roles, their purpose and how they interact; 2.5 Summarize server virtualization concepts, features and considerations; and 2.6 Describe common elements of networking essentials.
