Today, we are thrilled to unveil the next step in our journey for Windows Server graphical management experiences. In less than two weeks at Microsoft Ignite, we will launch the Technical Preview release of Project "Honolulu", a flexible, locally-deployed, browser-based management platform and tools.

Project "Honolulu" is the culmination of significant customer feedback, which has directly shaped product direction and investments. With support for both hybrid and traditional disconnected server environments, Project "Honolulu" provides a quick and easy solution for common IT admin tasks with a lightweight deployment.

I've never managed any servers, so it's difficult for me to gauge how useful of popular tools like these are. What is the usual way people manage their servers?

I spent several years working in IT at the National Park Service, which is an all-Windows affair. We did occasionally use AD, but normally we used a (paid) replacement called Hyena since AD was very annoying to use for some very common operations.

Hmm, interesting. Could you elaborate in more detail what were you using AD for? And how? And what problems you had with it?
