Windows Small Business Server (SBS) is Microsoft's server solution-in-a-box for small businesses.
This small business edition of Windows Server 2003 is designed to meet most small- to medium-sized
business computing needs including centralized file storage, e-mail, databases, resource sharing,
web site hosting, network security, and more.

This training series teaches SBS inside and out, walking you through how to set up and run the features it offers.
The training is focused on helping two groups of people use SBS successfully:

1. Small business owners can save money on consulting fees by deploying SBS on your own,
using your current computer knowledge plus the training in this series.
2. IT pros and consultants can gain marketable skills using SBS to solve small business
networking needs, plus gain credibility by earning Microsoft's SBS credential.

Here is what you'll learn how to do with SBS:

* Understand computer networking well enough to support a small Windows SBS network.
* Design SBS solution based on business needs, pain points, and current computing resources.
* Install SBS 2003 on a new server - or upgrade to SBS 2003 from previous Windows server editions.

* Protect network resources by setting security permission at the levels you choose.

from off-site through Outlook web access, and offer remote access to network resources.

- plus learn how to back it up so you don't lose these records.

* Protect yourself from disasters and set yourself up to recover easily using RAID, backup, and volume shadowing technologies.
* Share resources including both printers and files.

computer behavior.
