In the next few episodes we will be covering some active directory topics. This one is specifically about promoting a new domain controller in 2012. This process has changed. DCPROMO is no longer the way you’ll go about doing this. You might want to give this one a gander :)

http://youtu.be/iftWBuDKqvY

I should have made this episode 1 or maybe 0. If you don’t watch any other videos in this series and you work with Windows Server you *should* watch this one. In this episode I cover just simple things like how to use the interface, what the role of the mouse is in WS2012, where the start button went, etc. In other words – there the #$@% is my stuff?

What’s New in Windows Server 2012, Episode 5: Server Manager – Multi Remote Server Mgmt

http://youtu.be/Euzk52FXlWM

Tonight I continue my Server Manager series with a discussion about managing multiple servers remotely. Sorry about the audio, sounds like a vacuum running in the background. :-( I am on the road and don’t have my normal headset. I filmed this last night but tonight I picked up a portable headset so tomorrow’s video will have a lot better quality. I just finished filming it and it sounds a TON better. It is encoding now… Thanks everyone, appreciate you watching!
