Windows Admin Center continues its march to dominance over administering all things within the Windows ecosystem. Unfortunately, this could lead to IT Admins having more access than really required to complete a given task. Does a DNS admin need capability to reboot a server? Probably not. Enter Just Enough Administration, aka JEA. JEA provides the tools necessary to focus Windows Admin center on a specific technology, without exposing unnecessary capability. During this hands-on lab, don't just hear about these technologies, actually roll up your sleeves and setup, configure, and monitor Windows Admin Center leveraging JEA to empower technicians with on-point tools.

You will learn:

  • The risks of uncontrolled admin tools
  • How to deploy JEA for specific use-case scenarios such as DNS administration, DHCP administration, and Print Server Administration
  • How to setup and configure Windows Admin Center
