Course details

​​This hands-on course has replaced both COMP 3700, and COMP 4677. It is the first part of series in Microsoft Server Administration. COMP 1002 is the assumed prerequisite for all follow-on COMP courses. Students are expected to already have a solid working knowledge of file, disk and PC systems management in a Windows 11 networked environment before starting this course. Students begin with an introduction to the basic tasks that an Administrator performs to manage Microsoft server products. They study the different roles and types of servers and the server environment within Microsoft Azure. Participants will install, configure and architect a Microsoft Server in both On-Premises and Cloud environments. Labs and exercises focus on Microsoft Server Administration to create and manage users, groups, shares, and file permissions. Role Based Access Control (RBAC) best practices will be used. COMP 3677 topics include: how to plan and implement Group and local Security Policies; industry standard strategies and planning for server back-ups, troubleshooting, monitoring and managing a server with Microsoft's built-in tools. Server security and recovery plans with compliance strategies for a Microsoft Server will be discussed. Please Note: Attendance, participation in class and the BCIT Learning Hub are required. Students may have an average total time commitment of 12+ total hours each week; 3 hours of synchronous class time and 9+ hours of homework, reading and research each week. This is a required course in both the Applied Database Administration and Design (ADAD), and the Applied Network Administration and Design (ANAD) Associate Certificates, plus an elective in the Computer Systems Technology (CST FLEX) Diploma. COMP 3677 is the prerequisite for both of these follow-on courses: COMP 3680 Microsoft SQL Server Administration and COMP 3681 Microsoft Windows Server Administration. Upon completion, successful students will be able to create and manage user accounts, use built-in troubleshooting tools, monitor performance, and implement a security and recovery plan for Microsoft Server.
