Struggles With Moving to Windows Server 2012 R 2

I installed IIS.  But there is a lot different.  Is ASP.Net installed by default?  What about Failed Request Tracing?  I just have a lot fewer options available than I had on my old server.  Do I have to add some features?  FTP?  With or without SSL?

Any information anyone can give me would be awesome!

Installing IIS on Windows Server is different as a lot of IIS features are not enabled by default. You have to load Server Manager, click on Roles, IIS, and enable the required role services in the wizard.

I did what it says in the link but there are a lot of features that I can't see, for instance failed request tracing.  How do I add that?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

For the IIS role, see 'Health and Diagnostics', make sure 'Tracing' is enabled.

Open IIS Management Console, expand server, Default Web Site and look in the features section of the Window, where the IIS settings are configured, and it will show 'Failed request tracing' option.
