DATA SHEET

Windows Server 2003: Clustering Essentials

This course will focus on the new features in Windows Server 2003 Clustering, technical details, architecture, disaster recovery, and troubleshooting.

The Windows Server 2003: Clustering Essentials 3-day Workshop PLUS course provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively administer and support Microsoft Cluster Server (MSCS). This course will focus on the new features in Windows Server 2003 Clustering, technical details, architecture, disaster recovery, and troubleshooting.

This class does not provide training on the Network Load Balancing (NLB) services.

The workshop contains Level 300 content. Please review the target-audience information and contact your Microsoft Services representative to ensure that this workshop is appropriate to the student’s experience and technical expertise.

Workshop PLUS Benefits

Incoming Assessment to baseline knowledge. It is important for students to get feedback on how much they have learned during the Workshop PLUS course. To accomplish that end, the Incoming Assessment measures what students know at the beginning of the course. This 25-question assessment was developed by a team of subject matter experts at Microsoft.

Outgoing Assessment to measure knowledge transfer. Students like to know how much they learned as a result of the training. At the end of the Workshop PLUS course, students compare their Incoming and Outgoing results. In addition, the instructor reviews the questions and discusses the answers in detail to ensure that students understand the concepts. (Note: Individual results of the Incoming and Outgoing Assessment are not provided to management.)

Action Planning Exercises to take workshop-acquired knowledge and apply them to the workplace. Applying new knowledge to the real world is key to getting the most value out of your training budget. The purpose of the Action Planning Exercises is to identify key problems or proactive opportunities in your workplace and then to use the skills learned in this course to develop real-world action plans.

Syllabus

This workshop runs a full 3 days. Students should anticipate consistent start and end times for each day. Early departure on any day is not recommended.

Incoming Assessment. Students take a 25-question quiz that baselines their knowledge.

Module 1: Introduction to Server Clustering. This module is designed to give an introduction into cluster technology and to explain what Microsoft ® Windows ® Server 2003, Windows Clustering provides in this context. The central concepts and design of the cluster service are described, and the terminology it uses is introduced.

Module 2: Configuration of Cluster Service and Resources. This module explains the cluster service specific components. Hands-on experience is provided in configuring resources, network components, file/print shares, and registry replication.

Module 3: Geographically Dispersed Clusters. This module discusses the requirements, challenges, and implementation of cluster configuration at multiple sites and how Windows Clustering can be used to provide a disaster recovery environment for mission-critical data and applications.

Module 4: Troubleshooting and Disaster Recovery. This is a mostly hands on lab module. Covered are the most common clustering related issues and a thorough breakdown of the steps needed to solve them.

Module 5: Best Practices. Students will learn the best practices of deploying and maintaining clustered environments.

Outgoing Assessment. Students complete the quiz again and compare Incoming with Outgoing results to measure knowledge transfer.

Action Planning Exercises. Students develop Action Plans to improve real-world situations and/or implement proactive measures. Module 3: Geographically Dispersed Clusters. This module discusses the requirements, challenges, and implementation of cluster configuration at multiple sites and how Windows Clustering can be used to provide a disaster recovery environment for mission-critical data and applications.
