This course was designed to teach students how to create windows Active directory-based lab environments for hacking, training, and pen testing, learn active directory, software testing in various operating systems, and many other use cases. We will use Windows server as the host operating system and install the lab using Hyper-V hypervisor and then,  we will be using Azure.

The script we are going to be used is, AutomatedLab which was written in PowerShell and it is going to help us to deploy large labs in minutes.  In one of the Labs, we will have Active Directory, Multiple VMs, Router, Fileshare, and more. We’ll also install a variety of software using Chocolatey, Elastic stack, and Kali Linux. Once the script is developed, the labs will be created without user intervention. it’s simple to destroy and relaunch the labs with one command.
