- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Ed Liberman, and welcome to Windows Server 2012 R2: Configure and Manage Active Directory. Active Directory has been the directory services used by Microsoft since Windows 2000 Server, and continues to be used today. Active Directory helps provide users and services with appropriate access to network resources. In this course, I'll show you some domain controller configurations, such as working with read-only domain controllers, and virtualizing your domain controllers. Then, you'll see how to perform some Active Directory maintenance tasks like using Active Directory snapshots, and performing backup and recovery.
After that, we'll go through the account policy settings including password, account lockout, and Kerberos policies. So let's go ahead and get started.
