Managing Server Roles


Managing a Server Core 2008

There are many different ways to manage your server core machine, I personally like to use MMC snapins from a windows XP/Vista Machine (Admin Pack)

Use Remote Desktop (Terminal Services) on another windows machine to manage your server core installation remotely. (Still command prompt)

I haven’t tried this one, but you can also use Windows Remote Shell to run commands and scripts on your server core machine

Installing the Admin Pack in Windows Vista:

you just need to register the following DLL’s after you have installed the admin pack.

To do this Open up a notepad, paste the following contents below, save it as “reg.bat”, and run:

regsvr32 /s adprop.dll

regsvr32 /s azroles.dll

regsvr32 /s azroleui.dll
