About this site

This site has some information to"Windows Server 2012" and "Windows Server 2012 R2". It is also an experiment. The CMS I use is MODX Evolution. It is the first build up with MODX evolution from the scratch. All my other sides are updates from Etomite. And it is my first site in english. I'm curios if I can reach more peoples than with my german sites. Please beare with my english, it is not my first language.

Here you also find some information which I write down for microsoft certification I will take.

The future of this website

Windows Server 2016 is anounced for the end of September 2016. So it doesn't make much sense to maintain a site with the name windows-server-2012-r2.com any longer. I wan't shut it down as long as the revenue are enough to pay the costs for hosting and domain name. I think I will translate some My plan is to translate some frequently visited articles from my german site it-zeugs.de and publish it here.
