A Look At Windows Server 2008

Server Manager – Installing a Service

Windows Server 2008 definitely makes managing the server much easier. To demonstrate this, let us take a look at how you add a server role – in this case File Services.

Clicking Add Roles launches the wizard for installing server services, which begins by informing the administrator that certain prerequisites need to be met before the server can be configured for a new role.

After they type of service is selected, the wizard once again displays a page containing information about the service, what it does, and what needs to be considered during installation.

Next comes the configuration of the service, then a list from which the administrator can choose which aspects of the service to install and finally a summary window displaying the selected choices as well as additional information – for example, whether the system needs to be restarted.
