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 let's go ahead and look at some hardware requirements for Windows Server 2012. Microsoft poses some minimum hardware requirements for Windows 2012. And those minimum requirements are as follows. A 1.4 GHz 64 bit processor, 512 MB of RAM, 32 GB of disk space, Super VGA monitor. Keyboard or mouse, Internet access, and a DVD for purposes of installation. These are the minimum requirements to run Server 2012.
However, there are some important points we need to make about them. One, no server will run with less than these minimum requirements. Another important point to keep in mind is that most configurations are going to require a great deal more resources than these Minimums. Finally, if you have more than 16 GB of RAM in your server. You're going to require an additional two GB of disk space for every GB of RAM additional that you have.
While Microsoft has provided minimum resource requirements. Microsoft has also changed the maximum resource requirements. So that Server 2012 can be used for much larger purposes than previous editions of server, including virtualization capabilities. One of the maximum resources that has been increased is hard disk space. Server 2012 now supports virtually unlimited hard disk space for proportionalization. Secondly, Server 2012 now supports four terabytes of RAM.
Which is actually more RAM that is currently possible to put into a server. Finally, you can group together 64 servers into a cluster to provide high availability configuration for your network.
