Whether on the wire or across the airwaves, you'll find a lot to like in how Windows Server 2012 helps you shuffle the bits around. Popular but expensive network tools like teamed NICs become downright cheap, DHCP gets one-click failover clustering (really!), a new IP address manager lets you track the IP addresses that your users work from, and DNSSEC finally becomes easy.
But that's not all. IP networking's now covered from a command-line perspective, as is just about everything networking-related, with a pile of new PowerShell commands. In fact, you can glue together about seven of the new PowerShell commands and get a new-and-improved IPCONFIG, as you'll see in this talk.
But how to make it all work, and more specifically, what REALLY works and doesn't work so well? Find out in this clear examination of Win 8 networking with Mark Minasi!
