Windows 8 Server 2012
  • Overview
  • Windows 8 OEMs
  • Server 2012
  • Server Management
  • Active Directory Enhancements
  • Storage
  • Virtualization
overview
Overview
  • The Windows 8 interface has been “re-imagined”
    • Tile based “live” apps.
  • 2 UI’s
    • Tile based interface for supported apps
    • Desktop UI for traditional x86 apps
  • Interface was designed to be “seamless” when transitioning between Windows devices
    • Less learning curve between desktop down to mobile device
overview1
Overview
  • Most management tools have been server focused
  • Driving force behind 2012 is to centralize server infrastructure management
    • All servers are centrally managed on the Dashboard
  • Windows 8 and Server 2012 share the same code base
overview2
Overview
  • Microsoft has identified four key areas of advancement:
    • Virtualization
    • Centralized management
    • Modern workforce
    • New app platform
desktop oems
Desktop OEMS
  • Windows 8 RT—designed for mobility. Only runs built-in apps or apps downloaded from Windows Store
  • Windows 8—consumer based version. Does can not be joined to domain
  • Windows 8 Pro—Domain joinable, BitLocker, Hyper-V
  • Windows 8 Enterprise--

server 2012
Server 2012
  • System Requirements
server management
Server Management
  • PowerShell
    • No one really uses it to it’s capacity
    • Server 2012 provides expandable pane to reveal underlying PowerShell commands to accomplish certain tasks.
      • Copy/Paste code to use later for automation scripts
    • Better command “autocomplete”
    • More command-lets
      • 200 in 2008 R2
      • 2300 in Windows Server 2012
server management1
Server Management
  • Server ManagerReimagined
active directory enhancements
Active Directory Enhancements
  • Three goals in mind
    • Active Directory (AD) needs to have virtualization that simply works
    • Must be simple to deploy
    • Must be simple to manage
active directory enhancements1
Active Directory Enhancements
  • Virtualization that works
    • Problems caused by AD
      • Virtual Image restoration
        • System thinks it from an earlier time (Time Traveler)
        • Update Sequence Numbers are used to keep track of replication of data between DCs.
        • Replication issues can occur (time stamps all jacked up)
        • Can cause an issue called USN rollback
          • http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/virtual_active_directory_domain_controller_virtualization_hyperv(WS.10).aspx#usn_and_usn_rollback
active directory enhancements2
Active Directory Enhancements
  • Virtualization that works
    • Server 2012 is “virtualization safe”
    • A virtual DC is able to detect when snapshots are applied or a virtual DC has been copied.
      • Uses VM generation ID (gen ID)
      • Works with Hyper-V and are currently working with other vendors to make sure it works in those environments.
active directory enhancements3
Active Directory Enhancements
  • Domain Controller Cloning
    • Deployment made easier by the gen ID technology
  • Upgrades and DCPromo Made Simple
    • Upgrade domains and forest entirely from Server Manager
      • No ADPREP/FORESTPREP/DOMAINPREP
    • DCPromo was made easier with a troubleshooting feature built in.
active directory enhancements4
Active Directory Enhancements
  • Administration Improvements
    • Any administrative tasks in AD can be accomplished using PowerShell
      • 2002300 cmdlets!!!!
        • Less building of scripts. Probably a cmdlet to do what you want.
      • AD Recyle Bin has been GUI-Ized
      • ADAC has a hidden PowerShell panel that you can view to see what are the equivalent PowerShell commands
active directory enhancements5
Active Directory Enhancements
  • Active Directory Product Activatation
    • Uses LDAP instead of RPC
    • Still requires a KMS server
storage
Storage
  • Three primary improvements
    • Storage pools and spaces
    • CHKDSK
storage1
Storage
  • Storage pools and spaces
    • Storage pools are units of storage aggregation that provide administration and isolation
    • Storage spaces are give virtual disks performance, resiliency, and simplified storage provisioning
    • Use storage spaces to consolidate individual storage devices rather than allocating logical drive mappings
storage2
Storage
  • CHKDSK
    • Two phases
      • Online scan and corruption logging which checks for defects behind the scenes
      • Offline fixing phase that only corrects defects in drive data
    • Results in an exponentially faster CHKDSK process
virtualization
Virtualization
  • Hyper –V 3.0 Scalability
    • Supports up to 160 logical processors
    • 2 TB of RAM
    • Guests can support up to 32 VCPU’s and 512GB Ram per VM
    • More cost effective alternative to VMWare
      • VMWare private cloud comparable solutions can cost 5-16 times more than a Microsoft solution over 1-3 years.
      • Microsoft licenses on a per processor basis which makes the solutions more scalable and predictable
