Students will install and configure network servers and services including DNS, DHCP, Web services, and security methods. Prerequisite: CSIS 2620. (Spring)

Course Approach:

This course is a mixture of hands-on and lecture. The majority of class time will be spent working directly with network operating systems.  The internet, text and lecture materials will serve as the major sources of information for this course.  Your responsibility as the student is to read the text, attend class sessions, complete assigned tasks, and complete all exams.  Questions are always encouraged and welcome.


This course prepares the student for Microsoft's exam #70-646. Students who pass the certification exam before the day of the final exam for this course will receive a minimum of 95 percent on all completed exams for this course.  Students passing the certification exam are still expected to attend class and complete all course assignments, including in-class exams. Any exams missed and not made-up will remain a zero regardless if the certification exam is taken and passed.

Comfortable Learning Environment:

Students with medical, psychological, learning, or other disabilities desiring academic adjustments, accommodations, or auxiliary aids will need to contact the Southern Utan University Coordinator of Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD), in Room 206F of the Sharwan Smith Center, phone (435)865-8022.  SSD determines eligibility for and authorizes the provision of services.


Assignments 40%
Exams & Quizzes 50%
Attendance & Participation 10%


Assignments are due on the date indicated on the assignment schedule.  See below for procedures of turning in your assignments. Assignments turned in for grading are expected to be of highest quality.  Proper grammar usage and correct spelling are to be used at all times.  Assignments that fail to meet these standards may, at the discretion of the instructor, be returned for reworking or be given a reduced grade for substandard performance. Assignments will consist of the following:

In-Chapter Activities :

These Activities will be done on an individual basis and turned in individually. You are responsible for only those listed on the schedule. All Activities must be typed and clearly marked as to which Activity it is. These Activities will be turned in via Canvas. You must include in your write-up: what was done in the activity, what you learned from the activity, and the benefit administrators can derive from the technology/feature used.


Quizzes, both announced and unannounced, will be given throughout the semester and may cover material previously discussed or to be discussed in class that day.  Students are encouraged to read and review discussion materials before class.

Attendance and Participation:

Due to the time given in class to complete Hands-On and Case projects, as well as for the group project, it is encouraged that you attend class. Attendance will be taken and this will comprise 10% of your grade.

Late Work:

Late work will be accepted within two days of the announced due date.  Late work will receive an automatic grade reduction of 25%.  Late work turned in after the two day grace period will not be accepted.

Make-up Exams:

Make-up exams will be given for university-approved absences or absences pre-approved by the instructor.  Illness, unless the instructor is notified in advance of the exam period, is not considered justification for make-up exams.  Make-up exams, when given, will be at a time convenient to the instructor.  Final exams are to be taken at the designated time and place.  In extreme cases the final may be taken at a different time, however, the student must pay an early exam fee to the SUU Registrar's office and a copy of the receipt must be provided to the instructor before the exam is taken.
