3. Working with Computer Management

Computer Management, shown in Figure 3, provides tools for managing local and remote systems. The tools available through the console tree provide the core functionality and are divided into the following three categories, as shown in the accompanying screen:

  • System Tools

  • Storage

  • Services And Applications

Computer Management provides several tools for managing systems.
Figure 3. Computer Management provides several tools for managing systems.

Computer Management system tools

The system tools are designed to manage systems and view system information. The available system tools are these:

  • Task Scheduler Used to view the Task Scheduler Library as well as to create and manage tasks.

  • Event Viewer Used to view the event logs on the selected computer.

  • Shared Folders Used to manage the properties of shared folders as well as sessions for users working with shared folders and the files the users are working with. Managing shared folders.

  • Local Users And Groups On non–domain controller (DC) computers, used to manage local users and local user groups on the currently selected computer. Local users and local user groups aren’t a part of Active Directory and are managed instead through the Local Users And Groups view. Domain controllers don’t have local users or groups, and because of this there isn’t a Local Users And Groups view.

  • Performance Used to monitor system reliability and performance through charts and logs. You can also use this tool to alert users of adverse performance conditions.

  • Device Manager Used as a central location for checking the status of any device installed on a computer and for updating the associated device drivers. You can also use it to troubleshoot device problems.

Computer Management storage tools

The Computer Management storage tools display drive information and provide access to drive-management tools. The available storage tools include the following:

  • Windows Server Backup Used to manage backups for server data. You enable backups by adding the Windows Server Backup feature.

  • Disk Management Used to manage hard disks and the way they are partitioned. You can also use it to manage volume sets and software-based redundant array of independent disks (RAID) arrays.


Storage Spaces are preferred to software-based RAID and traditional disk-partitioning techniques. Before you implement software-based RAID or partition disks with Disk Management, you might want to review the options for creating Storage Spaces and allocating storage using Storage Spaces.

Computer Management Services And Applications tools

The Computer Management Services And Applications tools help you manage services and applications installed on the server. Any application or service-related task that can be performed in a separate tool can be performed through the Services And Applications node as well. For example, if the currently selected system has DHCP installed, you can manage DHCP through the server Applications And Services node. You could also use the DHCP tool, which can be accessed on the Tools menu in Server Manager, and either way, you can perform the same tasks.
