To take full advantage of expensive server hardware, a full featured network operating system (NOS) should be employed. Network operating systems provide vital services, such as e-mail, file sharing, DHCP, DNS, and other necessary components of a functional enterprise network. This course covers the different types of network operating systems, including Windows NOS and UNIX/Linux flavors. It also describes the basic and advanced configurations to make the NOS useable. One of the most important aspects of NOS software – security – is also covered in this course along with user and resource management tasks. The course maps to CompTIA's Server+ 2009, SK0-003, and covers the following exam objectives: 2.1 Install, deploy, configure, and update NOS (Windows / *nix); 2.2 Explain NOS security software and its features; and 2.3 Given a scenario, implement and administer NOS management features based on procedures and guidelines.

Target Audience
Established IT professionals who wish to acquire job skills and to be trained specifically to pass the CompTIA Server+ 2009 certification exam

There are no prerequisites for this course. However, a Comptia A+ certificate is recommended.
