Windows server 2012 standard vs. Windows server 2012 R2

    Question

  • What are the major differences between windows server 2012 standard and windows server 2012 R2 ? From what I read

    I believe it said R2 is for programmers or developers. Are you able to run R2 as you would standard only with the ability

    for programming , in other words can I run exchange , outlook and other server software on R2 and just have the capability

    to be able to program or is R2 restricted ? Also can you refer me to links for installation instructions for R2 2012 and

    standard 2012 servers ? thank you.    bottrojbuster@hotmail.com

  • The second link Mubasshir provided puts you into the TechNet library where all the questions you listed, and a whole lot more you haven't asked, will be answered.  Microsoft, since Windows Server 2003, has been releasing minor operating system upgrades and calling them R2 releases.  This is the third time.  It is a full operating system with nothing restricted to just programming.  Yes, early on during the alpha and beta phases, the operating systems are recommended for programmers and developers in order for them to get their applications ready when the General Availability of the product is released.  But one the product is generally available, it is a fully supported, functional operating system from Microsoft.

  • Negative ghost rider...

    If you have 2003 AD infrastructure you can add a server 2008 as an AD but not a 2008R2. There are some fundamental domain schema differences. It is NOT just a simple 'minor upgrade".
