Implementation and Administration of Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server.

This Class is targeted towards the student training to become a information technology (IT) professional. This course will teach you, through lectures, demonstrations, in-class labs, and homework exercises, how to implement and manage Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server. The class begins by laying some groundwork by presenting the features, design goals, and architecture of Exchange 2000 Server. Because of the tight integration with Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, you will learn how to prepare Active Directory directory service for Exchange 2000 deployment, and you will have the opportunity to install Exchange 2000 Server on your own computer. Some of the deployment options covered include coexistence with previous versions of Exchange Server and installing Exchange 2000 Server in a clustered environment. Once the messaging system is installed, the focus of the course will be on client types, client access, client management, server management, message routing, and security.

You should have the following knowledge and skills prior to starting the course. In some cases, it might be possible to acquire this knowledge and these skills through additional study during the course.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

Your grade will be based on 40% class assignments, 20% participation, and 40% on tests.

All assignment due dates will be noted when the assignments are given. Any excused absences must be agreed to by the instructor in advance unless there are strong extenuating circumstances.
