How to install Windows Server 2019 on Hyper-V 2016

With Hyper-V, all you have to do is download the VHDX file and copy it to the datastore where you want to run the Hyper-V virtual machine. Details of the Hyper-V environment are as follows:

– Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V

– Windows Server 2016 is installed on VMware ESXi 6.5.

The process of using the downloaded VHDX file is similar to creating other Hyper-V virtual machines. But here we connect the disk to the downloaded Microsoft Insider file.

How to install the Honolulu project on Windows Server 2019

Honolulu is a browser-based local tool that allows you to manage Windows Server without the need for Azure or cloud. Honolulu allows IT administrators access to full control of all server structural features. It is generally suitable for management on private networks that are not connected to the Internet.

Honolulu is a modern evolutionary tool for in-box management tools, such as Server Manager or MMC. In fact, the project complements the System Center and Operations Management Suite but has not been created to replace these products and services.

You can install the Honolulu project locally on the Windows Server 2019 Core version. To do this, we need to run and install the MSI package using CMD.

C:\Users\administrator.CLOUD\Downloads>msiexec /i honolulu_install.msi /qn /L*v log2.txt SME_port=6513 SSL_CERTIFICATE_OPTION=generate

Note: Instructions for installing the Honolulu project on the Windows Server 2019 can be found on the official Microsoft page.

msiexec /i <HonoluluInstallerName>.msi /qn /L*v log.txt SME_PORT=6513 SSL_CERTIFICATE_OPTION=generate

As you can see in the above command, we also specify the log file. Using the log file to see the installation status and troubleshooting problems during installation is appropriate. At first, the installation of Honolulu was faulty, but after resetting the server and reinstalling it, the problem was solved.

The Honolulu project and its implementation on Windows Server 2019

 

At first glance, the Honolulu project on Windows Server 2019 was very appealing to us. Microsoft has done an interesting job of designing and adding charm to it. In addition, the dashboard has an interesting search feature that allows you to easily find different items. You can type the letters in it so that the Honolulu project quickly displays the item you were looking for. Of course, the Search feature still needs improvements, which I hope will be improved in future versions.

Below you can see pictures of the Honolulu project on Windows Server 2019.

      At first, they may look similar, but they differ greatly in performance and features. Windows desktop is designed for the average user and has a graphical version, while Windows Server is designed as a server to run various services such as IIS Server, DNS Server and so on.
