Now it’s time to start go through all the scenarios in Longhorn, let's start with Server Managment

When you install Longhorn the installation process will continues without the need for you to provide input like admin password, computer name etc. All these settings will be configured when it’s completed, which means you don’t have to sit in front of the server during installation. The Initial Configuration Tasks window will help you to configure your server.

Once installation and configuration is done you will manage your servers with the Server Manager Console. It is a MMC were you can do lots of tasks like adding, removing, and configuring server roles, role services, and features. It also handles monitoring and you have wizards for most of the stuff you want to do.

Another cool way to manage multiple or single servers is through Windows PowerShell, a command-line shell and scripting language designed specifically to automate administration tasks for server roles, such as IIS, Terminal Server, and AD. You will get more than 120 cmdlets (command-line tools) out-of-the-box and you can of course create your own follow standard naming conventions.

To learn more, I encourage you to watch a recorded TechNet webcast about this scenario that you can download or stream. To get some hands-on experience you can try the Virtual Labs.

Good luck!
