Almost everywhere you go, from large businesses to people's homes, networks are in place to facilitate the movement of data between computers and other devices, such as printers or the Internet. The network infrastructure services, ports, protocols, and cabling involved in networking can be complicated, which can make troubleshooting issues that arise complicated as well. It is important that server administrators are very familiar with server networking concepts. Also, without a well-thought-out plan in place, all the best equipment and well trained personnel in the world will be useless in the event of a disaster. Disasters can be man-made or natural, and both types can cause short delays or major business disruptions.In this course, you will learn about IP addressing and network infrastructure services. This course also compares various ports and protocols, and covers how to install and implement proper cable management procedures. In addition, you will learn about backup strategies and procedures for restoring data. You'll also explore various types of backup, such as full, incremental, and differential, along with the common media used for backup such as hard disks and optical media. Finally, you'll explore disaster planning and the implementation of a disaster recovery plan. 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: 5.1 Given a scenario, configure servers to use IP addressing and network infrastructure services, 5.2 Compare and contrast various ports and protocols, 5.3 Given a scenario, install cables and implement proper cable management procedures, 6.1 Explain the importance of disaster recovery principles, and 6.2 Given a scenario, implement appropriate backup techniques.
