Windows Server 2019 Network Installation Guide

Windows Server 2019 Network Installation Guide
English | 2018 | ASIN: B07KN6QWS7 | 250 pages | EPUB, PDF, AZW3 | 20.15 MB

Updated for 2020.

The aim of this very accessible guide is to take the reader through a typical installation of a small Windows Server 2019 network and is written for the following audiences:

•Someone who is new to Windows Server 2019 and installing it for the first time
•Someone setting up Windows Server 2019 in a small business setting
•Someone wishing to learn the basics of Windows Server 2019 and who wants a succinct, practical guide based on real world scenarios
The approach is very much practical and hands on. It should give you a basic understanding of Windows Server and help you setup a network that should meet the needs of a typical small organization such as a business, non-profit, church, school and so on. However, it is not intended as a detailed description of all Window Server's many capabilities or as a reference manual and is not aimed at enterprise installations involving large numbers of servers and techniques such as virtualization. It assumes a reasonable working knowledge of Windows and the basics of networking. It is written in a friendly, "do-it-like-this" style, rather than with undue emphasis on theory and abstract topics, and contains over 180 illustrations and screenshots
