    I'm trying to learn about networks and server software for my own personal knowledge as i currently don't have a job where i would be using a server. I was wondering what the deal is with clusters and nodes. I have been shown a microsoft site where you get labs on a virtual server and one of the drills is to create a new node. It doesn't actually tell you what a node is for but apparently you should have at least 2 of them. i've watched a few videos on prof messer's site but they haven't been mentioned. can someone please give me a description of their purpose? cheers

    Slightly unrelated but have you watched Home - ITidiots.com ? It is slightly old now but you can literally start from the ground up for server experience. Episode 2 gets you setting up your own Domain then you go onto DNS, DHCP, Exchange etc.

    Might help you out a bit.

    ps: Its all on itunes :)

    On the back of this post - I searched the ITIdiots.com website and can't find any of their old videos - done a bit of a search but have turned up nothing - can anyone point me in the direction of the videos?

    Boffy says itunes - but I don't have any apple products and therefore no account etc.

    I've just looked on the website and realised they only implemented 'previous shows' for the last few they did. As such, itunes is the only way to download them.

    Unless you get itunes, not sure if you can get them elsewhere.

    ps: On a side-note, they have a HD channel on iTunes that doesn't work - so standard def is the only way to view these.
