When you take your first look at Windows Server 2008, you'll find that many of the traditional tools that graced Server 2003 are still around: the Computer Management console; the System Information utility; the Services console; and so forth. Administrative Tools are still in a Start menu folder named "Administrative Tools," and you can start feeling fairly comfortable with the GUI if you have background with prior versions of Windows.

Where things change a bit is in the Server Manager console (ServerManager.msc, typically under C:\Windows\System32), which is really the "nerve center" of Server 2008. Parts of this console are simply convenient pointers to other administrative tools. However, the "Roles" and "Features" nodes may be unfamiliar to you. This white paper introduces the Server Manager console and will help you find your way around it, so that you can get up to speed with Server 2008 more quickly than I did when I first started stumbling around this massive console!
