In this exercise, you complete the tasks necessary to set up a server on which Windows Server 2012 R2 has just been installed. Mindset When you purchase a server from an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) with Windows Server 2012 R2 installed, the factory runs a program called Sysprep.exe that prepares the server for distribution by erasing all the user-specific information on the system. Completion time

20 minutes

Why must you set the time zone to Eastern time, even if that is not where you are currently located?

28.Log on to SERVERB using the Administrator account and the password Pa$$w0rd. When Server Manager opens, click Local Server in the left pane, take a screen shot of the Properties window by pressing Alt+Prt Scr, and then paste it into your Lab 2 worksheet file in the page provided by pressing Ctrl+V. Your screen shot should show the parameters you modified during this exercise. [copy screen shot over this text]

Exercise 2.2
Adding Roles and Features

In this exercise, you use the Add Roles and Features Wizard to install additional components to a server running Windows Server 2012 R2. Mindset
One of the most basic tasks that administrators perform when setting up a server is to install the roles and features providing the software the server needs to perform its basic functions. Completion time

10 minutes

How can you install these same roles and features on SERVERB by using tools on SERVERA?

How would the installation of the roles and features selected in this exercise differ if the server was running Windows Server 2008 R2?

Question 4
How can you prove that the Web Server (IIS) role is installed on the server?

Exercise 2.3
Converting the GUI Interface to Server Core

Windows Server 2012 R2 enables you to convert a server installed using the full graphical user interface to one that uses Server Core. This enables administrators who are less familiar with the Windows PowerShell interface to install and configure a server using the familiar GUI tools, and then convert it to Server Core to minimize hardware resource utilization. Mindset

What advantages does Server Core provide over the full Windows Server 2012 R2 interface?

Completion time
10 minutes

13.Take a screen shot of the Server Core interface by pressing Alt+Prt Scr and then paste it into your Lab 2 worksheet file in the page provided by pressing Ctrl+V.

Exercise 2.4
Using Desired State Configuration

Windows Server 2012 R2 enables you to deploy system configurations using Windows PowerShell scripts. Mindset
How do you use the Windows PowerShell ISE interface?
Completion time
10 minutes

8. Take a screen shot of the Windows PowerShell ISE console showing the results of the configuration by pressing Alt+Prt Scr and then paste it into your Lab 2 worksheet file in the page provided by pressing Ctrl+V.

Lab Challenge
Using the Server Core Interface

After completing Exercise 2.3, the SERVERB server is left in the Server Core interface. Users must work from the command line to perform administrative tasks. Mindset
Microsoft now recommends Server Core as the default installation option for Windows Server 2012 R2. Users should become familiar with the basic command prompt and Windows PowerShell tools, because it might not be practical to install the GUI whenever additional server configuration is required. Completion time

10 minutes

To complete the challenge, you must specify the commands you would use in the Server Core Windows PowerShell interface to uninstall the roles and features you installed in Exercise 2.2 and convert the system back to the full GUI interface.
