Get a practical introduction to setting up Windows Server 2012. Timothy Pintello breaks down this basic IT task into its core components: installation, roles and services configuration, and local storage setup. He shows you how to practice these steps with VirtualBox and gain real experience without the cost or risks associated with expensive hardware.
Learn how to choose an edition that's right for your setup, install Windows Server 2012 and the VirtualBox drivers, and then configure the services and roles on your new server. Timothy also shows how to set up local storage and manage Windows Server in one of two ways: through the command line or with the simple admin interface that ships with Windows Server.
Now, we've talked about the minimal server interface. Let's go ahead and take a look at what that looks like. One way to get to the minimal server interface is to go up to the manage option under the server manager. Click that. Then click the remove roles and features. Go ahead and click server selection. Since we only have one server involved, we'll take the default one. And then go down and click features. Once the feature screen is up, we need to go down to the user interface and infrastructure option.
Once we're down here, you'll notice that it has a gray box. That gray box indicates there are additional features under this heading. Does it reveal those features? Go ahead and click the little arrow key. As you can see, we have a graphable manager tool infrastructure and a server graphical shell. To reveal the minimal server interface, we want to go ahead and turn off the server graphical shell. Once we check this off, we need to click next. This will require a restart of the server, so we want to go ahead and tell it to restart automatically.
And then we need to go ahead and confirm that choice. After that, we click the remove button, and let the server do its job. Now, the server has finished restarting, let's go ahead and log into our server. The server is now in the minimal server interface. Unlike the server core mode, you still have the Server Manager available for graphical management. However, many of the other tools we have been using in this course are not available to us. If you want to set this up from a command line, you can use the same command we used previously.
However, you'll only want to have the command line remove the server GUI shell feature and not the other feature
