Introduction to Microsoft Exchange Server Course 20017 5053/5054

Elements of this syllabus are subject to change.

Microsoft Exchange Server Course 20017 5053/5054 is a five-day instructor-led course provides students with the knowledge and skills to design a messaging infrastructure and a high availability messaging solution using Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.

Students will learn to assess an existing infrastructure and determine technical and business requirements for both new Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 deployments, and migrations. Students will create a design that addresses security, architecture, scalability, co-existence, and client access needs. They will also learn strategies for gaining approval for designs from stakeholders.

Students will also create a high availability design to meet service level agreement requirements and learn strategies for gaining approval for the design. They will learn how to identify risks and create mitigation plans to maintain the business continuity of the messaging system. Students will learn how to design a backup strategy, disaster recovery procedures, and test plans for those procedures.
