Anyone who works with Microsoft operating systems long enough will be called upon to either reset or attempt to recover a lost or forgotten administrative password. Administrator’s quit or get terminated, and some will reset the administrator password on the way out the door. Office managers forget their server administrator password or the machine has become infected with malware   

3
Video and Lab - Configuring and managing IPv6 for Server 2012 r2

In this lab, you will configure your network for IPv6 addressing. Microsoft has a strong history of supporting IPv6 unfortunately for the unwary, they still have some work ahead of them. Microsoft supports IPv6 in Server 2012 but it could be said they support the Microsoft version of IPv6 and not the industry standard.

This lab will provide students with an overview of the IPv6 capabilities in Server 2012 r2 and highlight some potential areas of concern. I won't be going into too much detail about what IPv6 is or how it works but the lab does link to an IPv6 primer.

One main issue is the lack of any real support for configuring IPv6 on Server Core. The sconfig utility does not allow the use of IPv6 so we are left with PowerShell which is fine as long as you can figure out the correct syntax. Google should be your goto source.

There are other documented issues with Microsoft and IPv6 mainly with third party hardware such as routers and firewalls. There are registry hacks for clients and servers to help get IPv6 working.

The other issue is the total lack of support for mapping network devices and shares using IPv6. The UNC path for a share does not understand IPv6 addressing and treats the letters and the colons as separate drive letters. Microsoft does have a workaround.

This is the most difficult lab of the course. The Server Core portion is what makes this so. If you try and run through the lab, you will crash and burn and experience a feeling best described as 'epic failure.' Slow and steady wins the race! Again, take your time with this lab. Use Google to find a workaround and don't forget the basics of troubleshooting network connectivity.

2
Video and Lab - Install and configure FSRM on Server 2012
