Recently I had the opportunity to read Jordan Krause’s new book Windows Server 2012 R2 Administrator Cookbook. If the name of the author sounds familiar, it’s because Jordan is also the author of the popular Microsoft DirectAccess Best Practices and Troubleshooting title, both published by Packt Publishing.
If you’re new to Windows Server 2012 R2 and you’re looking for a good entry-level administrator’s guide, this is an excellent choice. The cookbook series is ideally suited to deliver clear, concise guidance for specific administrative tasks. The book provides a high level overview of nearly all aspects of the operating system, including configuring and administration using the server manager and PowerShell for DHCP, DNS, Active Directory, security, networking, remote access, IIS, certificate services (PKI), and much more.
