A different log file

As we start deploying more of the Essentials stack, the log files move a bit.  In the past I would ask for the sbssetup.log file if any migration or install issues cropped up.  Now with Essentials I'll be asking for a different log file.

In particular I'll be asking for a log file called ConfigSvc.log and it will be located in a hidden folder C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Server\Logs\

If you have any errors during the install it will be logged in ConfigErrors.log

Bookmark that DISM command

How to Manage the Remote Desktop Gateway Service in SBS 2011 Standard , SBS 2011 Essentials and Windows Server 2012 Essentials.:

When you fire up Windows 2012 Essentials you'll need to do the DISM command if you want to fire up the RD Gateway service mmc console.

Just keep that in mind as you start testing out the server.
