In this "HANDS ON" course you will learn to build an Adaptable Virtual Network in Virtual Box. This course is MCSA and job focused it provides the TOOL you need to get serious about configuring Microsoft Servers & Clients on a virtual network when a real network is not available to you. The virtual networks allows you to create multiple virtual machines on your computer such that you can simulate an entire lab of multiple machines on your 1 machine. The virtual networks allow you to prepare for Microsoft MCSA, Cisco certifications and creating client and server, sockets network connections with python ect.
*As a new course - Some Issues and Details of recent Updates - Addressed below.* More material is being added and it is temporarily available at this introductory price.
**Just Added* Before you can do Microsoft Server & Microsoft Active directory domain services configurations. You need both a virtual network and to understand IP Addressing. I added an IP addressing Bonus section to this course. This is the actual material and Project that I created and use in one of my courses at the CIty University of Seattle.
Be sure what you are getting:
This is a complete course to build a virtual internal network, no information is lacking for this purpose however this is not a Microsoft configuration course, this is a course to Build an adaptable virtual network in virtual box to do the Microsoft configurations on, it is not a complete course on virtual box. There are many ways to build a virtual network in VIrtual Box and I have seen them all submitted by my students this is the best and easiest way to get started. I designed this so my students can do their Microsoft course work on this virtual network at home. It has been tested successful many times for over a year. However you will need to go to Youtube, Microsoft webpage or another EH Academy course for specific Microsoft server configuration details. This course shows you step by step in detail how to build a adaptable virtual network in Virtual Box that supports multiple servers and clients to do the Microsoft configurations on.
The Value of this course is different to different people:
Setting up a virtual network and configuring multiple servers and clients on a network is great for the MCSA exams. Although its certainly possible you can become a "Paper Cert" with little actual configuration experience. However its impossible to land a decent job with little actual experience. This course is for those that plan to earn a MCSA and then look for a job or for those already MCSA certified but lack the experience to pass the interviews. You can build this virtual network on your computer. Practice DNS, DHCP, AD/DS configs over and over on a network using multiple virtual machines all working together and ACE an interview. This is the next best thing to real job experience and certainly valuable. If you are primarily a Cisco Route and Switch Engineer and you just want to know a little overview about the Microsoft world this is not a valuable course for you. This course is job focused it provides the tool you need to get serious about configuring Microsoft Servers & Clients on a virtual network when a real network is not available to you. It takes much of the hardwork out of figuring out virtualization and lets you focus your time doing the Microsoft Configurations. That's very valuable to those looking for Certification and Employment as an MCSA.
Maintenance of this course is ongoing coming soon as a bonus I plan to add:
AD/DS server, DNS server, DHCP server configuration to the virtual network
and a Introduction to Powershell section.
Note: Like everything in Networking hands on is the key. It is intended that you build this virtual network hence the title. I will help you as needed in the shell. Everything is demonstrated step by step. So work along and have some fun.
Currently I teach Programming, Networking and Network Security Courses at The City University of Seattle and DeVry University. I have a Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering and a Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering. In addition to consulting I am also pursuing a graduate program in Network System Security at the University of Washington.
I have worked 15 years as an Electrical Computer and Network Engineer. I have designed Networks RADAR's and satellites for the US military. RF and Antenna test ranges for the F-22, GPS3 and Toyota. I have designed projects in the US, JAPAN, AUSTRIA and BRAZIL.
