Video Description

Windows & MacOS administration. Manage users, shared resources like drives, printers in a mixed environment

About This Video

  • This course does not assume any expertise in networking or OS knowledge. We give you step by step instructions and in fact, we hand hold you through all the exercises together with you.
  • Where most courses simply bombard you with dense theory and set you on your way, this course believes in developing a deep understanding of not only what you’re doing, but why you’re doing it. That’s why the focus is on building up your understanding for infinitely better results down the line.

In Detail

Technologies and modern agile practices like cloud computing, DevOps and microservices are encouraging technical teams to pick the right tool for the right job. Rather than be fanatical about a particular platform or operating system, it’s more efficient and cost-effective to embrace all the tools at your disposal. Typically you will see some files servers or other network servers running Windows Operating system whereas the knowledge workers work with MacOS with productivity applications. These users need to access files and data across the network regardless of which platform it resides on. These users don’t care which platform the files and data are on. They need access. Do you know what it takes to make these two operating systems work together seamlessly within the same environment? This course teaches you how to deploy, Configure and manage your heterogeneous environment and implement interoperability mechanisms between your Windows computers and Active directory domains and MacOS PCs. The course will start with basics of interoperability challenges and then move deeper into details about different scenarios like:

  • How to use network credentials to log in to your MacOS systems?
  • How to enforce password policies across multiple systems?
  • How to share hardware resources like shared drives and printers?

These IT skills are in high demand, but there is no easy way to acquire this knowledge. Rather than rely on hit and trial method, this course will provide you with all the information you need to get started with your interoperability requirements.
