Overview/Description Target Audience Prerequisites Expected Duration Lesson Objectives Course Number Overview/Description
To take full advantage of expensive server hardware, a full featured network operating system (NOS) should be employed. Network operating systems provide vital services, such as e-mail, file sharing, DHCP, DNS, and other necessary components of a functional enterprise network. This course covers the different types of network operating systems, including Windows NOS and UNIX/Linux flavors. It also describes the basic and advanced configurations to make the NOS useable. One of the most important aspects of NOS software – security – is also covered in this course along with user and resource management tasks. The course maps to CompTIA's Server+ 2009, SK0-003, and covers the following exam objectives: 2.1 Install, deploy, configure, and update NOS (Windows / *nix); 2.2 Explain NOS security software and its features; and 2.3 Given a scenario, implement and administer NOS management features based on procedures and guidelines.
