  9. Using Server Manager, you can: • Manage multiple servers from

    one instance of Server Manager • Deploy roles and features to remote servers • Generate Windows PowerShell scripts for actions performed in Server Manager • Group servers • View the status of all servers from a single location • Determine whether roles on the network are functioning efficiently
  10. The new PowerShell Integrated Scripting Engine provides: • Integrated help

    – enables you to search for Windows PowerShell cmdlets if you know a few characters in their name. • IntelliSense - which suggests values as you type and prompts you for parameter values.
  11. • Benefits of Using Server Core  Reduced update requirements.

     Reduced hardware footprint. • Graphical shell is now a feature. Can be turned off and back on again • Server Core Installation Options  Server Core. The standard deployment of Server Core. It is possible to convert to the full version of Windows Server 2012.  Server Core with Management. This works the same as a deployment of Windows Server 2012 with the graphical component, except that the graphical components are not installed.

  24. • Virtual hard disks can be as large as 64

    terabyte • File structure minimizes the chance that the disk will become corrupt if the host server experiences a power outage • VHDX supports better alignment when deployed to a large sector disk • Allows larger block size for dynamic and differencing disks, which provides better performance for these workloads VHDX
  25. • Network virtualization • Bandwidth management • DHCP guard •

    Router guard • Port mirroring • NIC teaming • Virtual Machine Queue • IPsec task offloading • SR-IOV
  26. Virtual Machine Movement & High Availability in Hyper-v Available options

    for moving virtual machines are: • Virtual machine and storage migration • Quick Migration • Export/Import of a virtual machine
  27. How Does Virtual Machine and Storage Migration Work? Storage Migration

    technology enables you to move a virtual machine and its storage to another location without downtime. • During migration the virtual machine hard drive is copied from one location to another • Changes are written to both source and destination drives • You can move virtual machine storage to same host, another host, or server message block share • Storage and virtual machine configuration can be in different locations
  28. None
  29. Overview of Hyper-V Replica Hyper-V Replica enables you to replicate

    a single virtual machine over WAN or LAN network to another host. Hyper-V Replica components: • Replication Engine • Change Tracking • Network Module • Hyper-V Replica Broker role
