Description: This course provides hands on experience installing and configuring Exchange Server 2013 and a variety of Microsoft messaging clients. Students will also install and configure Windows Server 2012, Active Directory Domain Services and IIS web services. Attendees will practice local and remote administration of server roles, network connectivity and user messaging data. After installing Exchange, students will create users and groups, and assign permissions, rights and policies. They will then configure and troubleshoot the Exchange environment using various consoles and management shells. Windows Server 2012's backup and fault tolerance strategies are reviewed, and Exchange Server's equivalent procedures are introduced and configured. User mailbox security and access policies are thoroughly covered and implemented. Comprehensive labs and exercises give students real experience deploying, managing and troubleshooting an Exchange Server 2013 infrastructure.

Prerequisites: Familiarity with the Microsoft Windows environment (desktop, files and folders). Students should also be familiar with the basic workings of Active Directory (domains, organizational units, users, groups, permissions and group policy). Completion of Windows Server 2012 System Administration course or equivalent knowledge.
