3. Managing Server 2012 > Server Manager

Server Manager

Server Manager has been at the forefront of Windows Server administration since the first release of Windows Server 2008. Server Manager is the central hub for performing many administrative tasks in the graphical shell.

The interface has been updated in Server 2012 and many new capabilities added. Multiserver management, including the ability to create and manage server groups, is one major enhancement. While you can remotely connect to other servers to manage in Server 2008 R2, you can actually add remote servers into the local console in Server 2012. This capability makes server management far more seamless and efficient.

Server 2012’s Server Manager allows you to do more management tasks than in Server 2008 R2 and provides greater control over a Windows infrastructure. The console gives you real-time status of deployed servers and server roles. You can perform actions on servers from within the console with just a click. Because you can see server and role status at a glance and take action from within the console, you can reduce the turnaround time for any server problems that may arise.
