So, its been one full day with Windows Server 2008 now and have configured,

1) Active Directory Services

a) Created a new Domain Forest
b) Added Domain Users
c) Joined Vista machines to the Domain(right now 1, but more to come)

2) Configured .NET Environment

a) Installed IIS 7 (IIS 7 looks really nice than in Vista!)
b) Installed the .NET Environment (both .NET 3.0 and 3.5)
[ .NET 3.5 - you have to download and install ]
c) Installed WCF
d) Hosted my WCF Service in IIS

Still to install,

a) SQL Server 2005
b) WSUS for Windows Server 2008
[I am not able to get WSUS for Windows Server 2008 RTM, If anybody have any clue about that, please do leave your comment]

UPDATE: WSUS 3.0 SP1 is now RTM and supports Windows Server 2008!

Here are Roles installed,

And Features installed,

I don’t have 64 bit machines here and hence no Hyper-V. Even my laptop is not 64 bit :(

Yes, how can I avoid RoadTrip :D
