Course Number

Enterprise administrators are involved in various aspects of infrastructure design. One of these areas includes planning the IP addressing scheme and name resolution strategy. This course covers the key IPv4 and IPv6 characteristics, advantages, and drawbacks, so that administrators are able to plan an appropriate addressing approach. The course outlines the IPv4 and IPv6 technologies needed for IP version coexistence and eventual migration to IPv6 addressing. The course also examines the key characteristics of the DNS server role, namespace design, and zone design that the enterprise administrator should consider in their plan and to determine what backward compatibility must be provided. The course covers the objectives for Microsoft exam 70-647 PRO: Windows Server 2008, Enterprise Administrator. Passing the prerequisite MCTS exams and this Professional Series exam completes the requirements for the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator certification.
