3. Server Remote Management

Chapter 3. Server Remote Management

Server management deals with the performance of key operational tasks on servers in your environment. These tasks include occasional or one-time tasks like adding a new role or feature to a server, periodic tasks such as reviewing event logs, and urgent tasks like troubleshooting alert messages. In small and midsized environments, many of these tasks can be performed manually using the graphical user interface (GUI) server-management tools included in Microsoft Windows Server platforms. In large environments such as datacenters and cloud-computing infrastructures, most operational tasks are automated using scripts.

Windows Server 2012 includes two main tools for remote server management: the new Server Manager console and version 3.0 of the Windows PowerShell scripting platform. These two tools can be used to manage both the physical and virtual servers within your organization’s infrastructure. This chapter introduces the new capabilities of these tools and shows how you can use them to manage Windows servers across your environment.
