[Tutorial] How to install IIS on Server 2012 and Server 2012 R2

Here is a tutorial on how to install IIS on Server 2012 and Server 2012 R2.  The installation process for this is very straight forward and does not differ much from Server 2008 R2.  This guide will only go over the basic install, additional configuration of IIS is outside the scope of this tutorial.  Before beginning, you can choose to install IIS via PowerShell or the GUI.  Either option will result with the exact same configuration.

      PowerShell - Install-WindowsFeature -Name Web-Server Web-Mgmt-Tools
