A network may have many servers on it, each playing a unique role. In order for a server to do its job properly, it must have the proper hardware and software installed. A server may be performing a network service, such as DNS or DHCP, serving applications such as e-mail, or providing network security as in the case of a firewall or authentication server. The administrator must be familiar with each of the potential roles and how they will impact each other and the users they serve. This course introduces the various server roles and requirements. The course also explores the different components that can be installed and configured on a server operating system. In addition, you'll explore how to use certain access and control methods to administer a server, and discuss some of the proper server maintenance techniques. This course is one of a series in the SkillSoft learning path that maps to CompTIA's Server+ exam, SK0-004, and covers the following exam objectives: 2.1 Install and configure server operating systems, 2.2 Compare and contrast server roles and requirements for each, and 2.4 Given a scenario, perform proper server maintenance techniques.
