Mastering Windows Server 2019

In this four-day training, you learn how to deploy, configure, maintain, and troubleshoot Windows Server 2019. The training is extensive and covers almost all aspects of Windows Server 2019. You learn what’s new and updated but also common and best practices for handling legacy components in Windows Server 2019.

You learn to build domain controllers, file servers, remote desktop servers, advanced networking, Hyper-V, Storage Spaces Direct, Storage Replica, Failover Cluster, bare metal deployment, migration, upgrading, monitoring, Windows Admin Center, and more. In just four days you learn almost every part of Windows Server 2019.

You use PowerShell and/or UI to deploy and configure all servers and systems. You basically start with nothing, and after four days, you have it all installed and configured.

A Message from Mikael

The training is based on modules, so you can pick and choose the parts you like and skip parts you don’t find interesting. The lab will be just the way you want it!

Mikael has developed the lab based on real-world experience building private clouds, data center fabrics, and traditional enterprise environments.

You receive all the scripts so that you can rerun all the exercises when you get back from training or modify them for use in your environment.

The lab is taught in Swedish and English depending on where it is held


Over 60 percent of the time you spend in class is dedicated to hands-on-labs and exercises, based on self-perceived real-life scenarios and methods verified to work in production environments. And the best part, you get access to all the sample files and scripts, including a solution that will build up the complete lab environment once returned home from the training.

About product versions

You will always run the labs on the latest (working) version of the software in the lab.
