Greg Shields
Proving your Windows Server skills isn’t a task to be taken lightly. Today’s MCSE tests against a broader-than-ever set of technologies, from Windows Server itself to the entirety of System Center. But you already know that. Microsoft’s 70-414 exam is the fifth and final hurdle between you and your MCSE: Server Infrastructure certification.
Congratulations! The road to get here – as well as all those nights of studying – has surely been long.
Having gotten this far, you’re already experienced with installing and configuring Windows Server 2012. You know how to administer it. You also know how to configure its advanced services, and design and implement a server infrastructure with the aid of System Center.
But this exam is different.
Microsoft’s 70-414 exists as the capstone to your entire certification effort. This exam doesn’t so much ask “what to do” as “when to do it." Indeed, you’ll get a few questions about Windows Server 2012 and System Center configurations, but the 70-414’s primary goal is proving you know when to implement Microsoft technologies.
To help you prep for an exam like this, we’ve brought in one of our big guns. Veteran CBT Nuggets instructor Greg Shields has passed over 30 IT exams in his career. He’s been an MCSE almost as long as there’s been an MCSE, and he knows his way around Microsoft certification. That deep and broad experience is why we’ve asked him to produce our 70-414 MCSE: Server Infrastructure capstone training.
In this exam prep series, Greg speaks directly to Microsoft’s exam objectives. He explains each objective in common sense terms, whiteboarding architectures where appropriate while demoing configurations when a little extra attention might be necessary. This training is no MCSE braindump. It’s a targeted study guide that’ll make you a wiser Windows Server administrator while tightly focusing on your 70-414 study efforts.
Good luck with that final step towards Microsoft MCSE certification. With Greg’s help, you’ll be ready to prove not only that you know “what to do” in solving IT problems, but also “when to do it."
Introduction to the MCSE: Server Administrator and the 70-414 Exam
Greg kicks off this series with a quick introduction to the 70-414. This exam, as you probably know, is Microsoft’s fifth and final to achieve the MCSE: Server Administrator. In this introductory Nugget, you’ll learn a bit about the exam. You’ll understand what to watch for, and you’ll get a sense of where you’ll want to focus your studying as you prepare for finally achieving that MCSE: Server Administrator.

Planning and Implementing Virtualization Hosts
Knowing when to implement virtualization’s many technologies is the difference between a smart IT professional and a wise one. In this Nugget, Greg helps you understand planning and implementing multi-host libraries including equivalent objects, planning for and implementing host resource optimization, and how to integrate third-party virtualization platforms into System Center VMM and Hyper-V.

Planning and Implementing Virtualization Networking
Virtualization networking gets a lot of new features in Windows Server 2012 and VMM 2012. That said, many of the new virtualization networking features are intended for the multi-tenant service provider. In this Nugget, Greg sifts through the new technologies to help you plan for and configure Virtual Machine Manager logical networks, plan for and configure IP address and MAC address settings across multiple Hyper-V hosts including IP virtualization, and plan for and configure virtual network optimization.

Planning and Implementing Virtualization Storage
Storage is a key part of virtualization. Storage is also one of virtualization’s most challenging components to implement correctly. Join Greg in this Nugget as you plan for storage optimization, plan for and configure Hyper-V host storage including stand-alone and clustered setup using SMB 3.0 and CSV, and plan for and configure Hyper-V guest storage including virtual Fibre Channel, iSCSI, and pass-through disks.

Planning and Implementing Virtualization Guests and Guest Movement
The first steps in any virtualization implementation involve assembling the fabric: Storage, networking, and hosts. Only then can you begin adding virtual machine guests and enabling guest movement. In this Nugget, Greg shows you how to configure placement rules, plan for and implement guest resource optimization including smart page file, dynamic memory, and RemoteFX, plan for and configure live, SAN, and network migration between Hyper-V hosts, plan for and manage P2V and V2V, as well as the considerations you should remember in creating Virtual Machine Manager templates.

Managing and Maintaining a Server Virtualization Infrastructure
With virtual machine guests up and operational, you’re in for the long haul of managing and maintaining your server virtualization infrastructure. Those activities include a variety of tasks, like maintaining library updates, managing dynamic optimization and resource optimization, and automating VM software and configuration updates using service templates. Greg shows you how in this Nugget.

Designing an Administrative Model
Today’s virtualization environments are growing ever closer to complete automation. Once you’ve assembled the necessary building blocks, you’re ready to turn over control to self-serving users. But that control can’t be relinquished without a solid administrative model in place. Greg shares in this Nugget his wisdom in designing a delegation of administration structure for Microsoft System Center 2012, designing considerations including user rights, built-in groups, and end-user self-service portal, and planning for and implementing delegation of virtualization environment including self-service capabilities.

Designing a Monitoring Strategy
The MCSE of yesteryear focused almost exclusively on technologies in Windows Server. Today’s MCSE adds (almost) the entirety of System Center to your list of objectives. One reason is because System Center is superior at performing certain management tasks – one of which is monitoring with System Center Operations Manager. In this Nugget you’ll learn when to use OpsMgr 2012 to monitor servers using Audit Collection Services (ACS), performance monitoring, centralized monitoring, and centralized reporting. You’ll plan for monitoring Active Directory, and you’ll implement and optimize OpsMgr 2012 management packs.

Designing an Updates Infrastructure
Updating servers is the monthly activity most IT professionals hate, but updating today is a far smarter activity than it’s been in years past. That intelligence comes from layering other technologies atop Microsoft WSUS. In this Nugget, Greg will outline the considerations you’ll need to know in designing an updates infrastructure with WSUS, System Center Configuration Manager 2012, and cluster-aware updating. You’ll learn how to design and configure Virtual Machine Manager for software update management, and you’ll see some quick steps in updating VDI desktop images.

Implementing Automated Remediation
Automation is the IT administrator’s force multiplier, and in today’s do-more-with-less business environment, automation is also a key skill in managing Windows Server. In this Nugget, Greg focuses on a few key automations you should know for the 70-414, such as creating an Update Baseline in Virtual Machine Manager, implementing a Desired Configuration Management Baseline (also known as a Compliance Baseline) in ConfigMgr 2012, implementing VMM 2012 integration with OpsMgr 2012, and integrating System Center 2012’s components for automatic remediation into your existing enterprise Infrastructure.

Planning and Implementing Failover Clustering
Failover Clustering isn’t for everyone, or every service. But for those that demand high-availability, this technology is ready for your production environment. The hardest part is getting everything ready. Greg’s been clustering servers since the days before Windows Clustering existed, and has developed a lot of wisdom (and a few scars) from the experience. In this Nugget, he’ll share what you need to know to plan for multi-node and multi-site clustering. He’ll explore design considerations including redundant networks, network priority settings, resource failover and failback, heartbeat and DNS settings, quorum configuration, and storage placement and replication. He’ll also help you plan for and implement highly available applications, services, and scripts using Generic Application, Generic Script, and Generic Service clustering roles.

Planning and Implementing Highly Available Network Services
Clustering is all about the ability to failover services when servers go down. Some services, however, don’t need failover – they need scalability. When more service capacity is what you need, then technologies like Network Load Balancing are your Microsoft solution. Join Greg as he explores planning for and configuring NLB, as well as a few design considerations including fault-tolerant networking, multicast vs. unicast configuration, state management, and automated deployment of NLB using Virtual Machine Manager service templates.

Planning and Implementing Highly Available Storage Solutions
Microsoft…storage? It wasn’t that long ago that suggesting Microsoft as a highly-available storage provider could have gotten an IT pro laughed out of the room. Today’s reality is somewhat different. Microsoft investment in storage technologies like SMB 3.0 and iSCSI are elevating the Microsoft approach to real-world production possibility. Learn from Greg how to design highly available, multi-replica DFS namespaces, how to plan for and configure storage spaces and storage pools, the tricks in planning for and configuring multi-path I/O, including Server Core, and best practices in configuring highly available iSCSI Targets and iSNS Server.

Planning and Implementing Highly Available Server Roles
Sometimes Microsoft’s exam objectives can be a bit ambiguous. One must read through the lines to ascertain what Microsoft needs you to know. Greg does exactly that for this otherwise-confusing objective, giving you the straight scoop on planning for a highly available DHCP Server, Hyper-V clustering, continuously-available file shares, and a DFS Namespace Server. He explains how to plan for and implement highly available VMs, how to configure Virtual Machine Manager to move a VM dynamically based on policy, and the steps in planning and managing OpsMgr 2012 PRO Tips integration.

Planning and Implementing a Business Continuity and DR Solution
Don’t get confused by the title of this objective (and Nugget). Microsoft isn’t looking for a single solution that solves every BC & DR problem. What you’ll need to know is which Microsoft solution works best for each data protection scenario. In this Nugget, Greg will explain how to plan a backup and recovery strategy, as well as go over a few planning considerations including Active Directory domain and forest recovery, Hyper-V replica, domain controller restore and cloning, and Active Directory object and container restore using authoritative restore and Recycle Bin.

Designing a Certificate Services Infrastructure
Certificates can be the IT pro’s biggest headache. They’re at the same time confusing and absolutely mission critical. But the days of needing only an occasional web server certificate from an external provider are behind us. Today’s technologies like EFS, DirectAccess, and PowerShell demand an onsite certificate services infrastructure. Greg helps you with designing one in this Nugget. He starts by outlining how to design a multi-tier Certificate Authority (CA) hierarchy with offline root CA, and then continues into planning for multi-forest CA deployment, Certificate Enrollment Web Services, network device enrollment, certificate validation and revocation, disaster recovery, and trust between organizations.

Implementing and Managing a Certificate Services Infrastructure
In an MCSE exam that’s all about “when to do things," Microsoft sneaks in one objective that focuses on “what to do." Unlike virtually every objective (and Nugget) in this series, you’ll need to know the specifics in implementing and managing your certificate services infrastructure. In this video Greg concentrates the knowledge you need by focusing on configuring and managing an offline root CA, configuring and managing Certificate Enrollment Web Services, Network Device Enrollment Services, and Online Certificates Status Protocol responders, migrating a CA, implementing administrator role separation, implementing and managing trust between organizations, and monitoring CA health.

Implementing and Managing Certificates
Those last two Nuggets focused on the certificate services infrastructure itself, but they haven’t yet spoken to the certificates that infrastructure delivers. Greg finishes up this certificate mini-series in this third Nugget with a discussion on managing certificate templates, implementing and managing deployment, validation, and revocation, and configuring and managing key archival and recovery.

Designing and Implementing a Federated Identity Solution
Closing out this 70-414 series is a quick two-parter on…not all that much. Indeed, AD FS and AD RMS (in the next Nugget) are big technologies with real-world utility. But when you look at their positioning for this specific exam, it’s hard to ascertain what you need to know from the long list of possible objectives. In this Nugget, Greg wades through this topic’s absurdly long list of objectives to distill out the specific areas you’ll want to focus on. You’ll peek through topics in planning for and implementing claims-based authentication, including planning and implementing Relying Party Trusts; planning for and configuring Claims Provider Trust rules; planning for and configuring attribute stores including Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS); planning for and managing Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) certificates; and planning for Identity Integration with Cloud services.

Designing and Implementing AD RMS
Closing out this series is the second in a two-part series on Active Directory’s least-understood services. This Nugget focuses on AD Rights Management Services, and like the Nugget before it focuses directly on the specific topics one might expect to be tested against in the 70-414. Topics for this final Nugget include planning for highly available AD RMS deployment; managing an AD RMS Service Connection Point; planning for and managing AD RMS client deployment; managing Trusted User Domains and Trusted publishing domains; managing Federated Identity support; managing Distributed and Archived Rights Policy templates; configuring Exclusion Policies; and decommissioning AD RMS.
