Filed under: General — telnet25 @ 1:23 pm

Installing Server 2012 is pretty fast and easy, what may people will be finding pretty impressive the new Metro interface.

Metro-styled Control Panel is the new era for windows, and it may strike you as it does not look like any other versions of windows you may have known.

Now here are few recommendations to get you going, get familiar with managing Windows from command line

PS is your friend , to be honest if you have not skill in command line and you are in this line of work you better get the basic down. Upcoming versions of windows and applications such as Exchange is more command line less GUI integrated.

I will show you some of the simple , basic stuff you can use to get started,

Open PS,,,,,,,,,,

As you can quickly realize basic is still there , if you have promoted server to be domain controller in the past you should not have any hard time to hang up on new interface and to be honest , it looks pretty neat and useful competed to previous versions GUI presentation.
