Microsoft Directory Services MVP
You get details about the new view and handling with the GUI changes within Windows Server 2012. Even the main part is manageable with Windows PowerShell (and should be done from my point of view to get firm with it) the author takes action to keep it as simple as possible to use the old style/way to configure/administrate the new Server Operating system wherever possible.
Details about Server grouping and the new Server manager which allows the complete Server management from a single console is important and that way described in detail before starting with the main part of upgrading the Operating systems and server roles.
Going on with the Add-Remove roles and features you get the information's about the wizard handling to prepare the local or remote servers.
Starting AD migration goes in depth on with news about adprep.exe and the wizards to have an easy migration. In detail you get the important information about FSMO roles placement on new OS DC and not leaving them on the old OS DC to have new features/options available.
Another great described feature are the migration tools delivered with the Operating system. Easy to handle and a free option also. You'll find DHCP, DNS, File, Print server and Hyper-V server migration and tips about.
The last chapters about the decommissioning from old no longer needed DCs and the functional level raising from forest and domain functional levels.
The structure based on the "recipes" really works.
If you want to jump from one topic to another, because you do not need to carry out all the steps or you want to migrate only a part of the infrastructure to Windows 2012, the structure is useful.
The real-world experience of Santhosh is an added value compared to many textbooks and articles available from other sources.
A commendation to the language intentionally accessible also to less experienced IT Pro.
I would recommend reading this book to anyone wanting to begin a migration to Windows 2012.
Highly recommend for those folks who need a good starting point on the new o/s.
