    Course 20412A is part three of a three-course series that includes courses 20410A and 20411A. The series provides the skills and knowledge necessary to implement a core Windows Server 2012 infrastructure in an existing enterprise environment. Collectively, the three courses cover implementing, managing, maintaining, and provisioning services and infrastructure in a Windows Server 2012 environment. While there is some content crossover across the three courses, 20412A builds on the knowledge learned in 20410A and 20411A, and it primarily covers advanced configuration and service tasks for deploying, managing, and maintaining a Windows Server 2012 infrastructure. This includes identity management, network load balancing, business continuity, disaster recovery, fault tolerance, and rights management.
