It’s a time of great change!
Michael Hildebrand posted a quick overview of server management in past Windows versions, and a “walk around” the new Server Manager interface in Windows Server 2012 over on the Ask PFE Platforms blog.
I say as someone that’s only been using it for a little while: It’s a little bit different. Definitely worth exploring, or at least glancing around!
Fresh new UI style
Remote and GUI-less management
Powershell integration and self-help/knowledge-share
There are lots of labeled pictures, too. If a picture tells a thousand words, is a picture of a word worth a thousand more words? I like to think so.
Oh, and “yarr”.

it's very difficult to start and adapt with new server manager...
Yep! I'm not up to speed yet. I'm eyeing off the VHDs option wondering if that's DISM under the covers. Huge amount of focus on multi-server management. Sure I'll get used to it soon!
