31 Days of our Favorite Things: Windows Server 2012 Server Manager (Part 2 of 31)

Get the Server 2012 trial!

The first time you start up Windows Server 2012, and you login, it is the first thing you see. 

“Even when I install it as a Server Core installation?”

Oh.. okay.. no.   When you install “Server with GUI”, you see this: Server Manager.  Server Manager is the one-stop, do-everything, manage-it-all application.  No, this is not the same tool as was in Windows Server 2008/2008 R2, or the original in Windows NT.  Remember that one?  (And here’s a little tidbit for you.  If you need to manage Windows NT 3.51 or NT 4.0 from Windows Server 2003, you can actually download SrvMgr.exe)

Today’s blog post in our 31 day series is by my buddy Brian Lewis: http://mythoughtsonit.com/2012/10/31-days-of-our-favorite-things-windows-server-manager-2012/.  In it he lays out the “whats” and “whys”, and even some “how”.
