Windows Server 2003 R2 Blogcast: Part II: Installed Components

Hello folks,

As promised here is part 2 of my Windows Server 2003 R2 Blogcast Series.  In part 1 I went through an upgrade from SP1 to R2 and explained what that looks like.  In this session I discuss what components get installed and go through what this looks like in Add/Remove programs.  In the second part of the session I'm going to add the Printer Management capability through the Manage your Server Component and show the change it makes to the Active Directory.

So click on the picture below to view the blogcast!

As a complement to the blogcast please refer to the following table about where components are now located within Add/remove programs in R2.
