Well I have been trying to install and run the new Windows Server 2012 recently, both in a virtual environment and a physical. But I am finding that it is very unstable.
There are two main areas that are causing my head to hurt:
- The new SERVER MANAGER seems to have a mind of it’s own. Sometimes it starts without a problem, other times it does not start at all. Very frustrating especially as this is where most of your work gets done in Server 2012
- Windows Update is really bad. Most of the time it just appears with a blank screen and if you close it down and try again, it does the same thing. Even when you shot down the server, it takes forever to do this as it is waiting on the update services to complete. I did manage to download a 170MB update for Server 2012 – hoping that this would solve my problem, but it did not.
Stay tuned for more Windows Server 2012 postings.
