    Default Windows Server Technet Library documentation

    M$ once made it freely available for 2012 r2, it's still out there (8000+ pages). Was anything like that available for 2016 or 2019? And was it released w/o subscription or other encumbrances?

    In case anyone wanted it for 2012 r2:

    I'm not surprised--M$ appears to be on a campaign to eliminate everything not W10 nowadays.

    It never hurts to check one of your old links before posting it.

    MS is even eliminating the documentation for Windows 10 or, at the least, breaking the links that Windows 10 help is trying access. I hate online help. MS is just making it worthless.

    How could M$ try to eliminate anything pertaining to 2019 when it's brand new?

    Much the same reason that I don't care much for HP online anymore. I'd love to know where they moved all of the documentation and software for their older PCs.

    When I first discovered this some months ago, I took notice of the fact that the toc was in the vicinity of 400 pages. This was back when I was trying to figure out why my server board wasn't working (it was), and read the entire Mike Meyer's A+ tome in 3 weeks. I seem to recall that being around 1300 pages. I was pretty tir3d by the end of that though. So reading this would take probably 6 months. For 2016 or 2019 I would. For 2012, can't necessarily see the point.
