Server 2016 – Install, Store, and Compute: Implementing Failover Clustering

Individuals who will manage the planning, installation, and configuration of a Windows 2016 environment; individuals preparing for the Microsoft Installation, Storage, and Compute with Windows Server 2016 (70-740) exam


Expected Duration
113 minutes

In this course, you’ll examine the high availability solutions for Windows Server 2016 provided by Microsoft’s software implemented Failover Clustering. This course is part of a series preparing for the Installation, Storage, and Compute with Windows Server 2016 (70-740) exam.


Implement Failover Clustering

  • start the course
  • identify implementation requirements for workgroup, single, and multi-domain clusters
  • deploy a workgroup cluster
  • deploy a single domain cluster
  • identify cluster quorum configuration options
  • configure cluster networking
  • restore single node configuration
  • restore a cluster configuration
  • configure cluster storage
  • implement Cluster-Aware Updating (CAU)
  • identify the steps to perform a cluster operating system rolling upgrade
  • configure and optimize Clustered Shared Volumes (CSVs)
  • configure a failover cluster without a network name
  • implement a Scale-Out File Server |w (SOFS) on Windows Server 2016
  • determine when to use a SOFS versus a clustered File Server
  • determine implementation scenarios for guest clustering
  • implement a clustered storage spaces solution
  • implement storage replica
  • implement cloud witness feature for a failover cluster
  • using shared VHDX as a storage solution for guest clusters

Practice: Failover Clusters

  • determine cluster strategies for a given scenario
