Let’s learn Windows Server: How to add MultiPoint Services (MPS) role?

The following is a sample chapter from the e-Book Windows Server 2016: How to install and add roles?: (Desktop Experience). Enjoy reading!

Once a new technology rolls over you, if you’re not part of the steamroller, you’re part of the road.” Stewart Brand

What is MultiPoint Services (MPS) role?

The MultiPoint Services (MPS) role replaces the well-known Windows MultiPoint Server 2012. This role enables multiple users to share simultaneously one single computer. In turn, each user has its own independent Windows experience. The users can use low-cost station hardware such as USB, video card, or local area network (LAN) to connect own PCs to server running MultiPoint Services role. From schools to training centers, and from businesses with limited founds to corporate meeting rooms can all benefit with MultiPoint Services (MPS) role. Apart from becoming a role services, another advantage of Windows Server’s 2016 MultiPoint Services (MPS) role compared to Windows MultiPoint Server 2012 is the fact that the previous limit of 20 simultaneous sessions has been removed.

How to add MultiPoint Services (MPS) role?

With my friends, from time to time we say: “Windows is all about copy and paste!” We say that, because we feel that working with Windows is fairly easy. And, indeed it is! Same applies to Server Manager in Windows Server 2016. In particular, the focus on a single point that Microsoft uses to simplify the process of configuring the server. Through a mouse click on the Server Manager’s icon or a tile on a Start menu you’ll open up the Server Manger window. Click Add Roles and Features to open up the wizard for adding the MultiPoint Services (MPS) role as shown in Figure 3. By following the self-descriptive process with few more clicks at the Next button you will successfully complete the process of adding the MultiPoint Services (MPS) role on your server. Note that when adding MultiPoint Services (MPS) role, it will add the Print and Document Services (PDS) and Remote Desktop Services (RDS) roles (as shown in Figures 1 and 2), in case you’ve haven’t added them earlier. In my scenario, I have added both aforementioned services earlier thus in the following steps will be added just MultiPoint Services role.

figure135

Figure 1. The Print and Document Services (PDS) role is installed while installing MultiPoint Services (MPS) role

figure136

Figure 2. The Remote Desktop Services (RDS) role is installed while installing MultiPoint Services (MPS) role

The Add Roles and Features Wizard will open as shown in Figure 3. Accept the Role-based or feature-based installation option and click the Next button.

Figure 10. The server restart is required to finish the MultiPoint Services (MPS) role installation

In Conclusion

From some Windows Server’s experts, the MultiPoint Services (MPS) role has been regarded among the best features introduced in Windows Server 2016. The beauty of it is that MultiPoint Services (MPS) can be added a sa service on your server, thus there’s no need to purchase an additional version of Windows Server as it was the case with Windows MultiPoint Server 2012. As such, MultiPoint Services (MPS) role eases the process of setting up the environment where multiple users share a single computer and have their independent Windows experience. That said, from schools to training centers, and from businesses with limited founds to corporate meeting rooms can all benefit with MultiPoint Services (MPS) role in Windows Server 2016.

Take your time to share your experience with Windows Server (any version) at Comment’s section. Thank you!

Happy birthday: 20 Years of Windows Server

20yearswindowsserver

It’s hard to believe that 20 years ago, Microsoft introduced the first OS for the masses, democratizing IT platforms and tools to help IT build solutions that drive success.

20-yearsof-windows-server

Server for the masses era 1996 – 2000

Windows NT 4.0 Server (Codename: Cairo / Release date: 1996) arrived at a time when big iron systems running on Unix ruled, which required large investments in hardware and extensive expertise. Microsoft software engineer David Cutler built a new kernel that was the foundation of NT. By coupling the intuitive desktop UI for the first time, organizations could quickly set up company-wide file, print, and application servers using commodity hardware.

System requirements:

  • CPU: 33 MHz
  • RAM: 32 MB
  • Hard disk: 150 MB

Enterprise era 2000 – 2008

With Windows 2000 Server (Codename: Sanus / release date: 2000), Microsoft enters the world of centralized enterprise management. With higher levels of scalability, reliability, and availability, Windows 2000 Server also included new features such as Active Directory (an X.500 LDAP-compatible directory), group policies, enterprise-wide security policies, and centralized groups and permissions.

System requirements:

  • CPU: 133 MHz
  • RAM: 32 MB
  • Hard disk: 1 GB

Windows Server 2003 (Codename: Whistler server / release date: 2003)brought the ease of Visual Basic into a modern era of managed code through the .NET Framework, allowing for native applications to be written specifically to meet the needs of the enterprise running native and managed code. This would become the foundation for the explosion of developers writing native apps using ASP.NET, VB.NET, and C#.

System requirements:

  • CPU: 400 MHz
  • RAM: 512 MB
  • Hard disk: 1.5 GB

Expanding on enterprise computing and into interoperability and virtualization, Windows Server 2003 R2 saw the introduction of WinRM, a SOAP-compliant remote management interface. Other improvements would bring Virtual Server 2005 and, for the first time, branch office solutions. This year Jeffrey Snover, Chief Architect of Windows Server and Microsoft System Center, will introduce Project Monad, which will mature into PowerShell.

System requirements:

  • CPU: 400 MHz
  • RAM: 512 MB
  • Hard disk: 1.5 GB

Datacenter era 2009 – 2013

With the mantra “Server Unleashed,” Windows Server 2008 (Codename: Longhorn / Release date:  2008) introduces Server Core, a small-footprint server that allows for higher density computing. This release would also usher in the Viridian hypervisor kernel that is the foundation of Hyper-V, giving Microsoft a native Type 1 hardware virtualization solution. Windows Server 2008 is the last of the 32-bit servers.

System requirements:

  • CPU: 1 GHz
  • RAM: 512 MB
  • Hard disk: 20 GB

With the launch of Windows Server 2008 R2 (Codename: Longhorn / Release date: 2009), Microsoft shifts exclusively into 64-bit architecture for the server line. Combined with Microsoft System Center, the first Microsoft private cloud solution is introduced with the Dynamic Datacenter Toolkit, laying the foundation for the next wave in cloud computing.

System requirements:

  • CPU: 1.4 GHz
  • RAM: 512 MB
  • Hard disk: 32 GB

Windows Server 2012 (Codename: Windows Server 8 / Release date: 2012) opened the door to every app on any cloud. It gave users the flexibility to build and deploy applications and websites on-premises, in the cloud, and in a hybrid environment―empowering IT to enable the modern work style where users have access to data and applications from virtually anywhere, from any device.

System requirements:

  • CPU: 1.4 GHz
  • RAM: 512 MB + 800 MB per virtual machine
  • Hard disk: 32 GB

Windows Server 2012 R2 (Codename: Windows Server Blue / Release date: 2013) introduced new and enhanced features that empowered users to efficiently utilize the capacity of their datacenters. To help protect investments in existing cross-platform technologies, it also offered expanded support for a heterogeneous datacenter, including for Linux.

System requirements:

  • CPU: 1.4 GHz
  • RAM: 512 MB + 800 MB per virtual machine
  • Hard disk: 32 GB

Cloud for the masses era 2016 – present

As organizations move to the cloud at their own pace, Windows Server 2016 (Codename: Redstone Server / Release date: 2016) supports them through their transition. Whether running traditional workloads or the latest cloud-native apps and technology, users get added availability and new layers of security from the same OS that powers Azure.

Windows Server 2016: Shtimi i roleve AD DS dhe DNS

Instalimi i roleve AD DS dhe DNS në Windows Server 2016

Nëse për sistemin operativ në përgjithësi mund të thuhet se thelbi (në Ang. kernel) i tij është në fakt “zemra” e tij, atëherë Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) është “zemra” e Windows Server 2016 kur bëhet fjalë për administrim dhe menaxhim të komunikimeve në mes të përdoruesve dhe domeneve. Ndërsa Domain Name System (DNS), një standard i hapur, i mundëson serverit me sistem operativ Windows Server 2016 që përmes rrjetit TCP/IP (që në fakt është rrjeti i Internetit) ti gjen kompjuterët dhe shërbimet përmes emrave të lehtë për përdorim. Atëherë, sa herë që shtoni rolin e AD DS në serverin tuaj është obligative që të shtoni edhe rolin e DNS në serverin tuaj meqë kështu e mundësoni gjetjen e kontrolluesit të domenit në rrjetin tuaj e me të edhe lehtësimin në komunikim përmes emrave të lehtë për përdorim.

Shpresoj që ky postim të jetë informues për ju të dashur lexues.
