Preview of Tool ‘Honolulu’ for Server Admins comes at

[German]Not every administrator is able to use Windows PowerShell for his tasks. To make life easier for administrators, Microsoft will present a graphical server management tool at the Ignite conference. 


Microsoft has just announced its latest development for server administrators under the code name' Honolulu'. (see Sneak peek #4: Introducing Project "Honolulu", our new Windows Server management experience). The tool covers the core tasks for troubleshooting, configuration and maintenance. Microsoft has also added some features to this new GUI tool that were previously only manageable through PowerShell.

The above screenshot gives an insight into the functions. Administrators can deploy and manage VMs and volumes, and view the disks, servers, and their status in the cluster. In addition, they can also review historical and real-time performance graphs cluster-wide for CPU/memory/network usage and storage IOPS, throughput and latency, and then view metrics for individual VMs, volumes, and disks.

Microsoft will release the Technical Preview Release of Project "Honolulu" this month at the Microsoft Ignite Conference (which will take place from September 25 to 29,2017). Honolulu is then available for Windows Server, version 1709, and various other versions of Windows Server. (via)
