I wrote a short document for everyone who wants to get a fresh Microsoft Windows Server 2003 installation properly configured. The attached file shows the most important command prompt commands e.g. ipconfig, ping or tracert, the nice MS features Performance Monitor and Event viewer as well as first setup steps for a proper system speed.
It shows step by step how to setup the advanced settings and remove unnecessary default applications that the installation suits any application that can sit on top of a server 2003 installation including the domain controller roll, exchange, OCS, OpenScape Xpressions or ProCenter.
This is part I of the series of step by step guides to Windows Server 2003.
