  • It's better to know end user OS before and to have a basic knowledge of networking.

    Thus, usually how to integrate end user computer in a domain is a start, and later you start to learn more.

    It all depend on your job too, a level 2 tech job help, as usually you will be backed by senior tech.

  • Hi,

    To study Windows server, you just need to have an overall understanding about Windows machines, there aren't any strict requirements.

    For systemic study, I recommend that you take some classes from some experts. 

    Then read some books and links by yourself, you may need a mentor to guide you when you encounter some questions.

    I also strongly recommend that you set up a server lab environment for testing.

    Here is a link below that is related to Windows Server:

    I hope this helps!
