If you are looking to become a successful Windows server administrator and utilize Windows Server 2008 to manage infrastructure, Web, and IT application servers, this is the ideal skill enhancement tool for you.

A server administrator is responsible for the operations and day-to-day management of an infrastructure of Windows Server 2008 servers for an enterprise organization. Windows server administrators use scripts and batch files written by others to accomplish tasks on a regular basis. They conduct most server management tasks remotely by using Remote Desktop Server or administration tools installed on their local workstation.

Professionals seeking a comprehensive understanding of Windows Server 2008 to deliver mission-critical performance will greatly benefit from The Microsoft 70-646 Practice Lab. Not only will this lab allow you to gain hands-on skills needed to build and configure servers, but it will also prepare you to confidently ace the Microsoft 70-646 certification exam.

Obtaining your certification signifies that you possess the fundamental knowledge to manage the server operating system, file, and directory services, complete software distribution and updates, profile and monitor assigned servers, and troubleshoot servers. Qualified server administrators also support engineering projects.
