This course will show how to create windows based lab environments for hacking and training demos, learn active directory, software testing in various operating systems and many other use cases. We will use Windows 10 as the host operating system and install the lab using Hyper-V hypervisor. AutomatedLab which uses powershell will be used for setting up this lab. Lab will have Active Directory, Multiple VMs, Router, etc. We'll also install variety of software using Chocolatey framework. Once the script is developed, the labs will be created without user intervention. it's simple to destroy and relaunch the labs. As part of this course, you will learn how to:
* Install Hyper-V
* Install AutomatedLab tool
* Download ISOs
* Create simple VMs with Internet Access
* Create Complex Lab with Active Directory
* Perform various activities in the VMs
* Install Chocolatey and Sysmon

Excellent course on setting up a home lab environment. Very well explained and documented. Amazing step by step instruction, from installing the OS's to connecting them to Domain Controllers.
It was really helpful in understanding the basic virtualized environment that one can go on to build from. Simple and straightforward instructions in the PDF.
This course has everything I expected. For me this was a review. I also use PFSense hardware and virtual setups. Looking forward to your other classes!
Active Directory and setting up the lab is a core element to the area in which I wish to learn. I very much appreciate this attention to detail and although there were some areas that went a bit fast for me I simply went back over them and all soon fell into place.
Wonderful course, i just wanted this type of practice session course to get quick overview about microsoft active directory. I will suggest everyone to watch this course, every minute is valuable in it.
This was an awesome tutorial for learning how to install the different types of windows. This benefit me alot since I was facing some challenges. Thank you once again
Followed instructions and all current virtualisation software (virtualbox) was no longer able to run and I had to re-install all my work from other courses I am currently doing.
I really enjoyed your course.. A lot of it was a refresher, but it's nice to see how someone else goes about doing things. There are not a lot of good pfsense tutorials out there. I'd love to take a pfsense course if you happen to put one out.
Good and exactly related to my work. The explanation of each topic is relevant and easy to understand.
The course doesn't cover "monitor using Elastic stack" as is mentioned in its description. It's extremely basic, slow paced, and overall a terrible course
This course is very informative as far as the course objective is concerned. The lecture is a bit fast. Instructor is very knowledgeable of his subject matter.
Great lecture. So now I can setup an Active Directory domain controller on my own. Although I didn't use Hyper-V virtualization platform throughout the course (I have a WIndows Server VM running on Oracle Cloud, using Hyper-V will mess up my networking thus unable to connect to the VM). But VMware Workstation does the job too.
The instructor was very clear and provided very easy to follow steps. Great course and no out of pocket expenses. The lab can be used for many different practical exercises.
Well, I've just started, and so far I'm quite interested to continue to learn what comes next. So, I think its good content so far. The explanations are clear, and the demonstration can be replicated - that's good enough for me. I'll say I really did learn something - I'm halfway and still interested. Thanks Raj. Wow, I'm truly satisfied as a beginner. Learning the different group policies and even troubleshooting some errors - every aspect was truly helpful. Thank you so much Raj. This course is truly rewarding for a beginner.
You Are Awesom teaching skill Raj ,really appriciate the way you present the course please do share more technicals stuffs in future ..you Rock more thumbs for you :-)
