by Willie Beale, (5/5) GREAT COURSE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Truly one of the best course on udemy. For months after getting my A+, MCITP and MCTS windows 7 I could not get an interview anywhere but after taking this course and using the resume template within a week after submitting my resume to several companies I got 3 interviews. Highly recommended. Instructor is great I've watched this course 5 times already.

by Kurt Schmucker, (5/5) Excellent course

A very good course, with excellent hands-on configuration of virtual machines (VMs). I can only imagine how tough it must have been to learn these IT skills before VMs became prevalent and so easy to install, configure, throw away, etc. I am learning exactly the items I needed.

by Robert Martin, (5/5) Nothing that you don't need to sift through to get the gems!

I love this course! It is concise and to the point giving students the luxury of not having to figure out what the "important" tidbits of information are. It ALL is, and that's a refreshing difference from most other online tutorials I've waded through. Thanks for good design and lesson planning!

by Corey Carter, (5/5) Invaluable

There are a lot of courses on udemy with regard to Windows System Administration but I am glad I chose this one. I about 175 days left on my eval copy of windows server and plan to use it to really practice all the things I learned in this course. It is a beginner course and feels like one so if you're at all wondering if you should take it, stop wondering and take it!

by Travis Coles, (5/5) Great Instruction

Very practical, easy to understand lectures. The quality is excellent and the instructor's delivery was spot on. I can't wait for the next course.

by Roshan Ally, (5/5) Awesome course

This is an excellent beginner`s course in Windows Server 2012 R2. William explain and demonstrated some important and useful tasks that the sys admin will do. I learn a few things about virtualbox as well. I enjoy following along and do the tasks as well. I now feel more cofident about the Windows Server Operating System. I do hope that William will follow up with intermediate and advanced level courses.

70-462: SQL Server Database Administration (DBA)

Beginner-Intermediate practical experience in Database Administration (DBA) SQL Server. Was for Microsoft exam 70-462.

Students: 15122, Price:  Paid

Please note: Microsoft has withdrawn the 70-462 exam. However, the information in this course is still relevant to DBA.

Do you want to gain practical experience in Database Administration in SQL Server? Welcome.

In this course, learn some of the skills that Microsoft want you to know, and add another tool to your CV or resume, and even go for the official Microsoft certification.

SQL Server is one of the main database tools that is requested in the job market, and the ability to being able to do DBA for SQL Server could be very useful for your current work, and your next job hunt.

We'll download and install for free SQL Server Developer, which gives you all of the capabilities of the full-cost Enterprise edition (though without being able to use it for commercial purposes). We'll start by downloading a demonstration database, and learning how to backup and restore this database, and what recovery models are appropriate for other databases, to enable you to offer Point in Time recovery.

We'll manage logins and server roles, so you can control who gets access to what data, implement and maintain indexes, so you can speed up searches, and import and export data. We'll look at managing SQL Server Agent, so you can automate routine tasks, and also be alerted to problems, we'll manage and configure databases, and look at compression, both of which aids with administrating big databases. And much more.

The course will take around 10 hours to complete, but completing this will enable you to versed in Database Administration tasks, giving you hands-on experience.

The course increases in difficulty slowly, so you'll manually backup a database, but then later we'll use SQL Server Agent to automate this. In this course, we will only do activities that require one computer, instead of multiple servers or virtualization.

The course is fairly relaxed - there will be a few "wrong turns", so you can see what problems might arise, but every lesson works towards an end goal at a relatively slow pace, so you can follow on your own computer easily. I assume that you know how to use a computer, including installing programs, but the actual DBA will be at a basic level, and I'll introduce every component as we go on.

No knowledge of T-SQL is required, as I'll demonstrate everything I can through the GUI (Graphical User Interface) as well as T-SQL. However, if you are going to go for the official Microsoft exam, the equivalent knowledge as per my first two courses in 70-461 T-SQL is essential.

At the end of the course, you can download a certificate of completion, so you can show everyone your new-found skills, and continue your preparations for the official Microsoft certifications.

The course is recorded on SQL Server 2017, but will also work fully in 2016, 2014 and 2012, and mostly in 2008R2 and 2008.
