MCITP Server Administrator @ Firebrand – Day 1

Today was my first day in the classroom at Firebrand doing my MCITP Server Administrator.

We started class at 09:00 and finished at 22:00, lunch was 12:00 – 12:30 and Tea was 19:00 – 19:30 so quite a hectic day with a 10 minute break every hour or so.

We’ve covered installing server 2008 and active directory, user accounts, computer accounts, sites and site links, group policy.

A lot of stuff that I’ve used before but the sites bits were new to me as I’ve not supported geographically spread organisations.

The facilities at Firebrand are top notch well laid out classrooms and there’s unlimited free tea, coffee, soft drinks and fruit in reception.

Our instructor is a guy called Shadow “shad” Farrell from Rhode Island USA and he’s awesome.

I’ll update this with some more day 1 stuff later.
