Join Timothy Pintello for an in-depth discussion in this video Configuring services, part of Basic Installation and Configuration of Windows Server 2012.
…Let's go ahead and take a closer look at services.…If you remember, we can go to our Local Server tile and we can get a general…overview of what's happening with our services right here in this screen.…However, also if you remember, from this screen all we are able to do is start and…stop services.…We are not able to do anything else with them.…To get more detail about a service, and to be able to do more to a service,…we need to go up here to the Tools menu, and click the Computer Management, and…then click the Services and Applications, and finally click the Services.…
This brings up our Service Manager.…As you can see in our Service Manager,…if we click a service we can get a lot more information about that service.…We can get a detailed description of the service,…we can also find out the status of the service, what the startup type for…the service is, and what component of a system turned it on.…In this case, it was Network Sources that turned on the service.…Once we have the service up,…we can actually stop a running service or start a service that is not running.…

Q: Why can't I get my servers to talk to each other when I attempt to add a standalone computer virtual machine (VM) to my domain VM in VirtualBox?
A: Check the following settings if you are having this problem.
- Are your VMs' network adapters set to host-only?
- Do all your VMs have the correct IP address?
- Do all your VMs have the default gateway set to the same IP address of the host-only adapter in your domain controller VM?
- Is your DHCP server set up to manage the same IP address range of the IP address you are attempting to manually enter into your standalone server's VM?
