Summary

In this chapter we’ve covered the basic initial configuration tasks you’re likely to do on most new Windows Server 2008 computers. We’ve focused on using the graphical Initial Configuration Tasks Wizard that automatically runs on a new server, because we think this is a logical and well-thought-out wizard, but all the tasks on the ICT Wizard can also be performed from a command line or by using individual wizards. If you’re running Windows Server Core, you won’t have a choice—you’ll need to use the command line or scripts to perform your initial configuration, and we’ll cover Server Core in Chapter 9. Meanwhile, in Chapter 8 we’ll cover using Server Manager to add Server Roles, Role Services, and Features.
