According to MS, a server administrator is responsible for the operations and management of an infrastructure of Windows Server 2012 servers in an enterprise environment. The upgrade exam covers these topics:- Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012 - Introduction to Active Directory Domain Services - Managing Active Directory Domain Services Objects - Automating Active Directory Domain Services Administration - Implementing Networking Services - Implementing Local Storage - Implementing File and Print Services - Implementing Group Policy - Implementing Server Virtualization with Hyper-V - Implementing a Group Policy Infrastructure - Managing User and Service Accounts - Maintaining Active Directory Domain Services - Configure and Troubleshoot DNS - Configure and Troubleshoot Remote Access - Installing, Configuring, and Troubleshooting the Network Policy Server role - Optimizing File Services - Increasing File System Security - Implementing Update Management - Implementing Advanced Network Services- Implementing Advanced File Services- Implementing Dynamic Access Control- Implementing Network Load Balancing- Implementing Failover Clustering- Implementing Disaster Recovery- Implementing AD CS- Implementing AD FS The exam is not too difficult. However, coverage is very comprehensive - a wide range of topics are presented in the official topic list. The exam does not ask you to answer hundreds of questions. In other words, only a small fraction of the official topics will be presented. To succeed in the exam, you need to read as many reference books as possible. There is no single book that can cover everything! This ExamFOCUS book focuses on the more difficult topics that will likely make a difference in exam results. The book is NOT intended to guide you through every single official topic. You should therefore use this book together with other reference books for the best possible preparation outcome. You should also download the evaluation copy of Server 2012 and play with it. Download the ISO image file and burn a DVD disc out of it, then perform installation accordingly. Although there is a VHD version available, we do not recommend that you use it for testing. There are some complicated steps involved which may not always go as smooth. If you use the current version of Virtual Box (which is 4.1.22 as of the time of this writing) to run Server 2012, be sure to choose qWindows 8 (64bit)q as the choice of OS.The book is NOT intended to guide you through every single official topic. You should therefore use this book together with other reference books for the best possible preparation outcome.
