Downloading Prerequisite Files
Downloading and Installing VirtualBox
In this lecture we are going to download and install Oracle VM VirtualBox, a powerful x86 and AMD64/Intel64 virtualization product for enterprise as well as home use. Not only is VirtualBox an extremely feature rich, high performance product for enterprise customers, it is also the only professional solution that is freely available as Open Source Software under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2.  For more information, visit https://www.VirtualBox.org/wiki/VirtualBox.
Downloading Windows Server 2016
Now it’s time to download Windows Server 2016. Thankfully Microsoft offers a free trial version for 2016 that anyone can download for evaluation (or in our case, training) purposes. 
Lab Setup and Intro to Server Virtualization
What is a Virtual Machine?
let’s learn what a VM is. The short answer is that a Virtual Machine is a software computer, or a computer within a computer. A computer that is stored on a physical computers hard-drive. You can use a VM just like you would use any computer or server. You can power it on, install Windows (or Linux), browse the web, install server applications, connect it to internal and external networks, etc…
Creating a Virtual Network with VirtualBox
Now it is time to create a virtual network with our VirtualBox software! Thankfully this is really easy and only a matter of a few clicks! We want to have a virtual network that allows our VM to access the internet, as well as communicate with other virtual machines (if you choose to create them).
Creating a Virtual Machine with VirtualBox
At this point you have downloaded and install VirtualBox, downloaded Windows Server 2016 and created a virtual network... The next step is to create the virtual machine that will use everything we have done so far!
Configuring the Virtual Machine
Now that we have created our virtual machine, we are also going to connect it to the virtual network we created and we are going to "mount" the Windows Server 2016 ISO file we downloaded earlier. To "mount" an ISO, means to virtually insert a CD into a virtual computer. Don't let the lingo confuse you!
Installing Windows Server 2016
In this section we are going to install Windows Server 2016 and get a basic understanding of how it works and what is new in version 2016.
Requirements
  • A computer with at least 4 GB of RAM and 64bit OS (if you want to follow along)
  • Internet Access
  • That's it!
  • A Windows PC or a MAC (either work just fine)
