Windows Server 2008 €? Reviewers Guide

Extended support for Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008 ended in January 2020. Extended Security Updates (ESU) are available, with one option to migrate your on-premises servers to Azure, where you can continue to run them on virtual machines. To find out more, see Extended Security Updates overview.

Windows Server 2008 – Reviewers Guide


Install IIS on Server 20081.Click Start, point to Administrative Tools and then click Server Manager.2.In Roles Summary, click Add Roles.3.Use the Add Roles Wizard to add the Web server role.

Another area in which Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 shine is in the branch office. A new feature, BranchCache, is easily enabled using Group Policy. When enabled, R2 will intelligently cache data the first time it is downloaded from a corporate content server (either SMB or HTTP) so that subsequent requests for the same information are served up locally in the branch instead of taxing the WAN links. This is done in a way where we can ensure file changes, ACLs, file locks, etc. are all respected. Think of a branch where there are 100 users who all need to download the new employee manual, which is 50MB. Instead of 5GB going across the WAN in the early morning (slowly), only 50MB will go across and everyone will get the manual locally from the hosted cache in the branch. You just saved 4.5GB on that line.

First, check with your ISV to ensure your applications are tested for compatibility. For a quick compatibility self-test check, you can take advantage of our free downloadable certification toolkit (use the Works with Windows Server 2008 R2 tool) as a black-box validation tool for application compatibility compliance verification. (You can find the Toolkit at If your ISV has not pledged support for Windows Server 2008 R2 (you may find a complete list of server pledged supported apps on our, we have application compatibility resources including the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010 (MDT), which has the Application Compatibility Toolkit 5.5 (ACT).

As of Crucible 4.1, the oldest Subversion version supported is 1.5 (released in 2008). This applies also to the repository format: the lowest supported is format 5 and FSFS format 3. Therefore, before you upgrade to Crucible 4.1, please upgrade both the Subversion client and server binaries as well as your repositories (using the 'svn upgrade' command).
