									                    Deploying and Managing Windows® 7: Hands-On - 4 Days
                                                  Course 2401 Overview

  You Will Learn How To    •   Effectively implement and administer Windows 7 in an enterprise environment
                           •   Create and deploy custom Windows 7 installation and Windows PE boot images
                           •   Streamline deployments with Windows Deployment Services (WDS)
                           •   Develop a plan for managing initial and ongoing client activation
                           •   Centralize administration through the GUI, shell commands, WinRS and PowerShell
                           •   Locate and remediate issues with Microsoft monitoring, analysis and recovery tools

        Course Benefits   Centralized administration and streamlined deployment have become attainable goals with Windows 7. New
                          and improved Windows technologies, when properly implemented and managed, can help offset implementation
                          costs and optimize daily administrative tasks. This course provides the knowledge and skills to leverage these
                          technologies to deploy, maintain and administer client operating systems.

     Who Should Attend    Help desk technicians, desktop administrators and anyone responsible for deploying and managing Windows
                          7. Knowledge of Windows client administration is assumed. Experience with Windows 7 at the level of Course
                          2400, "Windows 7 Comprehensive Introduction," is helpful but not required.

     Hands-On Training    Throughout this course, extensive hands-on exercises provide practical experience deploying and managing
                          Windows 7. Exercises include:
                           • Building custom Windows PE boot media
                           • Creating and rolling out custom WIM files
                           • Installing Windows across the network with WDS
                           • Centralizing management with scheduled tasks and group policies
                           • Administering systems from the command line and with PowerShell
                           • Recovering modified and deleted files
