In the course IIS Administration participants learn the knowledge and skills to manage and control the latest version of Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS). IIS is a flexible web server that can be installed on Windows Server, Windows 10 and cloud based on Nano Server. IIS is often used to host ASP.NET Web applications, but other languages such as PHP are also possible.
The course starts with an explanation of the architecture of IIS with the available modules and components. The IIS Manager application is discussed next as well as various configuration settings. The hosting of static pages is also covered.
Subsequently application pools are treated with which applications can be isolated from each other so errors do not propagate from one application to another. Hosting ASP.NET applications and setting up virtual directories are also on the program of the course.
Extensive attention is paid to the graphical Management Console with which many IIS settings can be configured interactively, such as compression settings, default documents and directory browsing.
Part of the course schedule is also the security of Web Applications and server security. This covers authentication and authorization, securing the file system and URL patterns. SSL and various well-known security risks such as SQL Injection and Cross Site Scripting are also discussed.
Web applications can also be hosted on multiple IIS servers that together form a Web Farm. The configuration of a Web Farm in which servers that are connected via Virtual IP and a load balancer are covered.
Finally attention is paid to the remote management of IIS servers using Powershell cmdLets. And troubleshooting and backup and restore are also treated.
Administrators, Programmers, engineers and QA personnel who need to administer and control the IIS Server and who need to deploy applications onto IIS.
Participants should be familiar basic computing skills like browsing the Web and accessing the directory structure. Knowledge of Web Applications and other Web Servers is beneficial.
The subjects are discussed on the basis of presentation slides and demos. The theory is interspersed with exercises. The code is tested in different browsers. The course material is in English. The course times are from 9.30 up and to 16.30.
Participants receive an official certificate IIS Administration after successful completion of the course.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
