Good, but what happened to the Graphics ?
, 8 July 2012
This review is from: Windows Home Server 2011 Step by Step (Kindle Edition)
I purchased this book to read on my kindle. I found the book informative going from building a server to installing the software, to configuring it to do the basics and more. I have tried every bit of the advice relating to installing extra roles such as a print server. WSUS server etc. and everything worked seamlesly.
The only critisisms are, firstly too much time is spent showing you how to build a computer from component parts, this really is covered in other books and should have only been mentioned and not have about 20 pages on it. Instead the pages could have been better used to explain troubleshooting techniques for when things dont exactly go to plan. Finally as you get near the end of the book, several comments refer to a graphic, which I assume is a screen dump of the dialog box that you would see if you were actually configuring the server. Unfortunately at least a dozen of these graphics are missing so some parts of the explanations dont make sense.
overall this is a decent book, and you will acheive your goal of installing the software and getting the server up and running. Just a pity about the graphics.
