Course Description

Microsoft’s Active Directory offers a central way for IT systems administrators to manage user accounts and devices within an IT infrastructure network. Changes in Active Directory can be made by these administrators centrally for consistency across the environment. Through Active Directory, people enjoy benefits such as being able to log onto devices and into applications with the same combination of username and password (and optionally other methods of authentication) and use their settings and files across all devices that are members of Active Directory. Optionally, when a device is lost, defective or stolen, people can remain productive on another Active Directory-managed device. In this course you will learn how and why Active Directory was developed by Microsoft, the fundamental architecture, basic design, management, as well as security and fundamentals for cloud integration with services.
