Video Series: Server Manager Tools – Overview, Processes, and Services 

Continuing our video series to help you get to know Project Honolulu, here are a few videos that give a quick run-down of some tools in Server Manager. If you haven’t already, download Project Honolulu at to try it out in your environment. 

The Server Overview tool provides a high-level view of your server’s performance and lets you configure global settings: 

The Processes tool gives a similar experience to the familiar in-box Task Manager: 

The Services tool allows you to manage the services registered on your server, similar to the Windows Services MMC tool: 

We’ll be continuing to update our video series to highlight the features and capabilities of the tools within Project Honolulu. Watch this blog for future content and let us know if you have requests for the development of Project Honolulu at

  1. Omar Al-Dweik says:

    Connection Error
    Connecting to remote server sccmpr01 failed with the following error message : WinRM cannot complete the operation. Verify that the specified computer name is valid, that the computer is accessible over the network, and that a firewall exception for the WinRM service is enabled and allows access from this computer. By default, the WinRM firewall exception for public profiles limits access to remote computers within the same local subnet. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.

    1. As the error message describes, this is usually a general remote WinRM connectivity issue unrelated to Honolulu. From the machine you have Honolulu installed on, try establishing a remote WinRM connection to the target server you’re trying to manage in the PowerShell console. This doc might help:

  2. Should it be the time to replace all other MMC snap-in tools (like, Server Manager, RSAT, AD, DNS, DHCP, etc.) to this kind of Web Access or RESTful-API ?
