Today, I installed a Windows AD domain controller while waiting in the line for lunch in the cafeteria.
This was on a newly installed Windows Server 2008 R2. I started adding the DC role when I joined the lunch queue. The longest decision making required was perhaps on choosing which functional level to install. In the end I decided to go for Server 2008 R2. When it was my turn to order the food, the upgrading was already in progress.
I did all this using my mobile phone, a Samsung Galaxy Note and Jump Desktop's RDP client.
I disconnected when I got my food as I didn't want to mix my lunch with dcpromo. As I was busy after that, I found time to reconnect to the server almost half a day later. As it turned out, the upgrading process completed beautifully while I was away.
The wonders of technology!
