Exercise 1 - Configure Windows Services

Windows Services are applications that are enabled to launch and run in the background before the user has signed-in to the computer. These background services provide essential features to make the operating system fully functional and support server-based applications such as messaging or databases that you may install on Windows Server.

There are numerous background operating system services that are automatically started by Windows such as Server and Workstation. For example, the Server service gives Windows the capability to share its folders, files, and printers to other users. Whereas, the Workstation service allows a Windows computer to connect to shared resources from other computers in the network.

In this exercise, you will stop, start, restart, and disable the Server service in Windows Server 2016 and wrap-up the activity by configuring a service account for an Application Pool in Internet Information Services.
