    Where is the TechNet details for 70-410 windows server 2012 R2

  • grzesiekb

    Great Wiki. Thanks


    Yes, where is the R2 updates???

  • JTSveigdalen

    Informative video, but sad that he always talks about "IT Guys."  It'd be nice if we could just be IT people, IT workers, instead of just "IT Guys."

    I found the links to technet for 70-410 is not accurate. For example, section 2.2  Configure Print and Document Services, Microsoft MCSE Exam Skill Measrued specified "configure printer pooling, configure print priorities" but the above list didn't listed the links to technet article, instead listed links to 'Print Migration' which is not in the Microsoft MCSE Exam skill measured list.

    Candidates must find the complete list of skills measured here ( then accordingly find technet articles.

  • sung han

    For example, to read technet article about Print Pooling, google 'technet print pooling' or 'technet create print pool' to find articles.

    This Wiki isnt up to date. There are things from R2 thar aren't included and are crucial concepts. One of them is Snapshots vs Checkpoints. With R2 we have some new functions.

    More about them:

    We need to get up to date the Wiki with R2 material.

    How can we do that?
