Windows Server 2019 Essential Training Part 2 - Management and Administration

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.



💠 Powershell is A) A scripting language, and B) Is an application with a command based shell to run and create your own Powershell scripts and modules (a collection of scripts, modules, and functions).

💠 PowerShellGit is used to download packages from GitHub. Is it the equivalent of 'apt-get'?


💠 You can remote the Domain Controller from Powershell. Consider the permissions, who is logged into the target machine. Other parameters may be needed.

💠 Invoke-Command -ScriptBlock {cmdlets} -ComputerNames("name1", "name2") can be used to run the same command on multiple domain controllers and servers.

💠 Windows Admin Center is a browser-based app for managing clusters, servers, and Windows 10 PCs. Check your SSL certificates!

💠 When installing a role or a feature, you're prompted to install GUI and Powershell tools for management. if you're in the GUI (Server Manager). In PS, you have to spell it out with the parameter -IncludeManagementTools.

💠 RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools) are downloadable on Microsoft's website. Be mindful of the one you pick - What updates do you have? What version?

💠 Features list in 'Add Roles and Features Wizard' includes 'Server Admin Tools' as 'Remote Server Admin Tools' because Server Manager assumes you're there to manage a role somewhere else.

Connecting IoT Devices to a Registration Server (Packet Tracer, Cisco)

In Packet Tracer, a demo software made by Cisco Systems. It certainly has changed a lot since 2016. It's almost an Olympic feat to even get started with it now, but it does look snazzy. This is for the new CCNA, that integrates, among other things, IoT and Automation, which I've worked on here before. Instructions here . I don't know if this is an aspect of "Let's make sure people are paying attention and not simply following blindly", or an oversight - The instructions indicate a Meraki Server, when a regular one is the working option here. I have to enable the IoT service on this server. Also, we assign the server an IPv4 address from a DHCP pool instead of giving it a static one. For something that handles our IoT business, perhaps that's safer; Getting a new IPv4 address every week or so is a minimal step against an intruder, but it is a step. There are no devices associated with this new server; In an earlier lab (not shown), I attached them to 'H

The Webpage: Zero Grocery

 I have always liked the idea of a grocer where I can get a small amount of what I need to try a recipe. I don't need 4lbs of sugar for 12 cookies. Some places used to operate like that, buying things in "Stick it in your bag amounts and we'll weigh it." (RIP, Lucky's Market).  Zero Grocery is the next best thing, offering delivery of food, spices, and underground culinary treats to your (California only) doorstep in reusable containers.      You may be thinking that in the times of COVID, people would be hesitant about reusing glass jars strangers have stuck their fingers in. Not so ; [CEO, Zuleyka] Strasner says that customers haven’t been squeamish about reusable packaging during the pandemic. You don't need an account or subscription to browse the goodies , though you will need a zip code in their delivery range to stick them in the basket.  Come with me as I step through my first impressions of the site here - There's a lot to like.
