Windows server 2019 preview build 17962

The availability of Windows server 2019 preview build 17962 has been announced.


Also available is:


A preview of Hyper-V Server 2019


System Insights - a new feature bringing local predictive analytical capabilities to Windows Server. Systems Insights is managed through Windows Admin Center or PowerShell


Server Core App Compatibility on Demand – includes ability to install system components that need some of the GUI capabilities not present on server core including MMC, perfmon, sysinternals tools and PowerShell ISE


A new preview of Windows Admin Center (WAC was formerly known as project Honolulu)


I’m not a big fan of WAC – its perpetuating the GUI based focus of admin tools. One good thing in this preview is that the underlying PowerShell scripts are know visible. This may just make it useful as a learning tool in the same way that the AD Adninistrative center is a way to learn how to manage AD with PowerShell
