- Design Website Logging
In this module students will learn to establish and maintain very tight security
using Microsoft IIS 7.0.
Module 4: Design IIS Maintenance and UDDI
- Design and Verify Transport Security
- Design Authentication and Authorization
- Design Delegation Administration
The students will learn how to plan for an IIS installation, taking into account
these new features. They will also learn how to deploy UDDI services.
Module 5: Designing a Terminal Services Infrastructure
- Designing Internet Information Services Backup and Recovery
- Specify Monitoring Requirements
- Deploying UDDI Services
- Tuning and Troubleshooting IIS 7.0
The Students will learn how to design a terminal services infrastructure including
how to design a terminal services licensing strategy and how to design for remote
access with TS Gateways, TS Session Broker, RemoteApp programs, and TS Web Access.

Module 6: Designing a Terminal Services Maintenance Strategy
The students will be introduced to design and implementation planning using WSRM
policies for application resource and reporting. We will also discuss group policy
settings for terminal servers and how to design high availability for terminal
services. Finally, we will specify monitoring, maintenance, and recovery
requirements and procedures for terminal services.
Module 7: Design Windows Media Services Infrastructure Administration

The students will implement virtualization to consolidate servers, deploy branch office
infrastructure servers, support legacy applications, and create a test environment.
Module 9: Designing Virtualization Provisioning
- Virtualization of a Test Server Environment
- Virtualization and Migration of Legacy Applications
- Design and Test a Virtualized Development Environment
The students will learn how to determine virtualization appropriateness and virtual
server provisioning. Students will also learn the importance of customizing virtual
servers to standard configurations and also learn about virtual server deployment.
- Design Virtual Server Provisioning Workflow Model
- Evaluate Appropriateness for Virtualization
- Evaluate Customization to Standard Configuration
- Design Deployment for Virtualization
