  • MCSA Studies

    I'm currently studying to obtain my MCSA. I've taken and passed the 070-270 exam.

    I am looking for a site that hosts Windows Server 2003 Domain Controller just so that I can use it for studying purposes. As I study I would like to be able to actually perform the tasks myself to get a better understanding of aspects that I am not yet proficient in.

    Know of any?

    TIA

    Knowledge isn't worth having unless you can share it with others.

    Hi GG
    Your best bet is Virtual PC and the Evaluation edition of Server 2003
    Alternatively Technet Plus ($249 IIRC) and you can download full copies for training and evaluation
    I know of commercial training sites that host virtual servers but they ain't cheap

      Also have a scout around and see if any family/friends/colleagues etc have a few year old desktop machine they no longer require. The Server 2003 Sysreqs are pretty basic by current standards, and a desktop will do fine for playing with. Most MS Press or MOC books come with a CD of the 180-day eval copy of Server 2003 as well.

      Another option (What I did ) is get an old server very cheaply off ebay. I got an HP NetServer for 20 which I used.

        Thank you both for your response.

        I decided to go with VMware.
