Windows Server 2019 Essential Training by Scott M Burrell (Part 1) - Getting Started

The course is in 6 sections, so I'll separate them by parts. I do have Windows Server experience, and 2019 is new to me, though the general idea is the same.



The first relevant video opens with

"I was speaking recently with a network administrator for a global company. He told me that his IT infrastructure was out of date because his Windows Servers were a version or two behind the newest thing from Microsoft."

Just because you can upgrade doesn't mean you should! If your stuff works (well), it works. If new features help your business, or have the possibility for your business to 'grow' into them then sure, upgrade. But there's no need to keep up with the Jones or Gates.



💭 Consider the role of Active Directory and how it will work with your new servers.


💭 In-place upgrades keep the settings and configurations while pushing it to a new version of Server. Roles may or may not transfer, or need to be configured differently. Use SMIG tools to port old settings to a new server.


💭 Some roles require more resources than others. Some done. Consider coexisting of less powerful roles on the same server.


💭 Windows Defender on Server 2019 has Ransomware protection. It was a challenge to keep machines current, so ATP was invented to centralizing the task of interpreting data, that you access via a web based portal (via Azure, so subscription needed), with scanners on each machine.


💭 DNS also keeps track of things in Active Directory, and DHCP helps it keep track of devices that have received IP addresses with IP Address Management Server.

Azure Networking Options - Core Cloud Services

I have done a lot of AWS things on here. Time to give Azure some attention. After all, since employers don't think Cisco or COMPTIA certifications are important, maybe Microsoft ones are?

First, let's really think about why these are the two biggest cloud services providers in the world:

They've been doing internet things for a long time.Amazon launched in 1995, a virtual bookstore.
Microsoft, well, you know. 

They've lived, breathed, and frankly, created, infrastructure that we use today, that they're selling to us today. Of course the Store of Everything and the Company of Everything would encourage us to put everything in their hands.

Also: Azure has a lot less silly names for modules. Important. I appreciate straightforwardness.


I said 'a lot less', not '100% sensible names'

Microsoft has a clear set of Azure Fundamentals that anyone can interact with. Let's talk about networking basics, basically to say, again, "Hi, employers, I have an …

Grace Hopper Celebration 2019 (GHC19)

From Aicha Evans' speech at the Keynote.
September 6th - I receive an email from Anita B Organization, saying "We read your application, we like your website, and here's a free ticket to GHC 2019 in Orlando, Florida!"


After a few more questions, it seemed everything was on the up and up, and so I accepted - and that's what this post is about!

For those who don't know, Grace Hopper Celebration is the largest gathering of Women in Technology in the world.

On a personal note, This is the first trip I've taken without my parents. Sure, they've left me behind to go on vacations, but I've never left them. I was totally worried! But you know what happened?

I met a lot of cool people in Orlando, learned a lot of neat things, and had a blast just walking around airports for upwards of 8 hours.

New Delta Sky Club on Wikimedia I really, really love airports! And I survived.
