On this exceptionally practical course, students learn what they need to know about how to configure and implement AD Connect and Azure AD Premium for cloud hybrid identity and manage user access to data.
This course is for IT support staff, IT consultants and architects, pre-sales technical support staff, tech-savvy business decision-makers and department heads. Attendees should know basic admin tasks such as: creating users in Active Directory users and computers, and using simple commands in a command or powershell prompt.. They should have some knowledge of Microsoft AD, Exchange, IIS, and SharePoint and a good grasp of general Windows concepts, including authentication and authorization, shares and permissions.
The training takes the form of presentations, discussions, demonstrations, and a lot of hands-on exercises. The hands-on labs – which are crucial to a proper understanding of the topics covered – have been made a realistic as possible. So for example, students will buy a real domain, and fully implement EMS/O365 with public email, and a real certificates for Single Sign-on. Students may keep this sandbox environment for future use.
Please note that an essential part of the lab environment is that is has a real domain and real certificates and a real Microsoft Azure trial. To facilitate this students will have to provide a credit card. The total cost will not exceed £20/$30, unless you choose to continue to use the environment after the course.
The labs are complex and reflect issues you will have in the real world, you will have to diagnose and fix some deliberate configuration problems – and it’s extremely worthwhile!
“This was, by FAR, the best training I’ve received in years! I loved how ‘lab heavy’ the course was. I learned so much from working through the labs.”
You will learn how to configure AD Connect and Azure AD Premium to build realistic scenarios. At the end of the course you’ll be able to:
- Synchronize on premises AD information with (cloud) Azure AD using AD Connect, including users, their passwords, and groups/distribution lists
- Manage access to applications, services and data using static, dynamic and self-service groups
- Configure self-service password reset
- Implement multi-factor authentication to protect key accounts, and step-up authentication for sensitive applications
- and much more!
