Just wondering what people feel is the best training material for properly designing a Microsoft based network? I am looking into a re-engineering of an existing network, taking into account everything from servers, to switches to desktops. In essence, a 3-5 year plan to take the current solutions in place and overhaul the infrastructure from top to bottom.
I know the Microsoft Certified Architect certification was retired so not sure what a comparable certification may be out there... or should I be looking at more generic training which can then be applied to any network / infrastructure that can help me pull all the different components together?
Any thoughts would be highly appreciated. Thanks!
