File Server Resource Manager Role This lesson covers the file server resource manager role. File servers are designed to store data, but as any kind of data can be stored there, it can be overwhelming. System administrators need to be able to manage that environment and control what users do. This lab-based lesson offers step by step instructions in how to add a role and feature to the file server using the role based installation wizard. The file server allows us to control quotas and do reporting relative to the file server environment.
