Preparing and Testing the Migration Strategy



This course is intended for individuals who are IT Professionals with design and implementation experience with Windows migration. The skills required for this course include the ability to design an Active Directory and networking infrastructure based on an organization's business needs and infrastructure factors, and identify and categorize existing services and business requirements. This course contains virtual labs. A note about virtual System Requirements: If you access the Internet from behind a proxy server, you may not be able to take a virtual lab. This affects AOL and users who use a modified browser and those who access virtual lab technology from behind a corporate firewall. Modified browser users should use either Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator (both 4.0 or higher). Users behind a corporate proxy server should access virtual lab technology through a commercial ISP account. NOTE: Connection to the real PCs and servers is done via the VNS protocol. As a result, there is a requirement for a connection through ports 5800-5821 and 5900-5921.
