Course Description:

The Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012 R2 (410) online training course is part one of a series of three online training courses that provide the skills and knowledge necessary to implement a core Windows Server 2012 infrastructure in an existing enterprise environment. The three online training courses collectively cover implementing, managing, maintaining, and provisioning services and infrastructure in a Windows Server 2012 environment.
