Exam 70-297 retired Jan. 31, 2013. However, this course retains value as an IT training resource.

Enhancements to Active Directory are one of the primary reasons for utilizing Windows Server 2003. This training teaches you how to get the most performance, reliability and security from an Active Directory installation.

From creating the conceptual design by gathering and analyzing business and technical requirements, to designing network and routing topologies, IP address assignment, DNS service implementation, security for remote access and planning migration paths to Active Directory, James Conrad gives you great advice and goes over several case studies to help you make informed decisions.

The training maps to Microsoft exam 70-297, and is a core design requirement for the MCSE 2003.
