Server 2016: Supporting Branch Office Technologies

Individuals who will manage the planning, implementing, and configuration of core networking services in Windows 2016 Server environments, and individuals preparing for the Microsoft Networking with Windows Server 2016 (70-741) exam


Expected Duration
85 minutes

Bandwidth costs money. By understanding ways to improve service delivery while reducing bandwidth you can drive savings into the bottom line. In this course, you’ll examine the technologies native to Windows Server 2016 that help to support branch offices. This is includes general considerations for branch offices, reducing bandwidth consumption using BranchCache, and making files more available using the Distributed Files System (DFS). This course aligns with the Networking with Windows Server 2016 (70-741) exam.


Considerations for the Branch Offices

  • start the course
  • identify the challenges faced by branch offices regarding file access and WAN consumption

Implementing a Distributed File System

  • describe the process used by the Distributed File System (DFS)
  • install and configure DFS namespaces
  • configure DFS replication targets
  • configure DFS replication scheduling
  • configure Remote Differential Compression (RDC) settings
  • configure DFS staging
  • configure DFS fault tolerance
  • clone a Distributed File System Replication (DFSR) database
  • recover DFSR databases
  • optimize DFS replication

Implement BranchCache at a Branch Office

  • identify the features and requirements of a BranchCache implementation
  • install and configure BranchCache
  • implement distributed and hosted cache modes
  • implement distributed and hosted cache modes
  • implement BranchCache for web and application servers
  • troubleshoot BranchCache

Practice: Configure Remote File Access

  • configure remote file access for a given scenario
