Specific server roles have different uses and software installation requirements. Server technicians need to know about these as well as how to manage servers locally and remotely. Use this mostly practical course to learn what's involved in managing servers and deploying server roles. Examine several GUI and command-line management tools and standards. Then, practice installing a Windows and Linux on-premises virtual machine (VM). Remotely manage the Windows server using RDP and the Linux server through SSH. And learn how to configure SSH public key authentication. Moving on, deploy specific server roles, such as an email, web, hypervisor, and update server. Finally, configure VMs in the cloud. When you're done, you'll be able to install on-premises VMs, manage servers remotely, deploy server roles, and enable server updating. You'll also be more prepared for the CompTIA Server+ SK0-005 certification exam.
