As an IT professional I remember the days of having to move from tool to tool inside the Windows Interface in order to successfully manage my servers.  Even with the use of the Microsoft Management Console there was still way to much maneuvering for my liking.  If you are in the same situation then Windows Server 2008 has something you are going to love.  Its called Server Manager and it is your one stop shop to managing a Windows 2008 Server. 

I recorded a short video clip of the Windows Server 2008 Server Manager Interface and some of the basics of its functions. 

Enjoy!
