Server Manager is a tool in Windows 2016 that allows administrators to manage and monitor the various components and services of a server, as well as manage remote servers from a central location.
Server Manager provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for administrators to easily access and manage various server roles and features, such as Active Directory, DNS, File and Storage Services, Hyper-V, and others. It also allows for the installation and configuration of additional roles and features, as well as the ability to add or remove servers from the management console.
Server Manager also provides a dashboard that displays information about the server’s health and performance, as well as alerts for potential issues or concerns. It also allows for the configuration of server roles and features, as well as the management of user and group accounts, security settings, and other server settings.
One of the key features of Server Manager is its ability to manage remote servers. This allows administrators to easily manage multiple servers from a single console, without the need to log in to each individual server. This can greatly reduce the time and effort required to manage a large server environment.
In addition to its management capabilities, Server Manager also provides access to various tools and utilities for troubleshooting and maintaining the server. This includes tools for monitoring server performance, managing event logs, and diagnosing issues with specific roles or features.
Overall, Server Manager is an essential tool for administrators of Windows 2016 servers, providing a convenient and centralized way to manage, monitor, and maintain the server and its various components and services.
