In my previous videos we went over a couple of essential tasks for using Server Core. I showed you how to activate a newly installed Server Core and how to assign a computer name to a Server Core and join it to a local domain.
You might remember from last week that I compared Server Core to a work mule, saying that it’s typically setup to perform a certain function and you don’t get to interact with it as much as you would with a full install of Server 2008.
This is even more evident in today’s video, as the different roles and features that you install on your Server Core will define what type of work your little work mule performs.
Since Server Core has a limited set of roles and services (compared to the full install) I’ll first talk about what they are. I’ll show you a command that you can use to see the available roles, features and even role services and to how check what has already been installed on your Server Core.
The command we’ll be using will also show us the exact syntax that we need to use to install the roles, role services, and features. As an example I’ll install the DHCP role so you can see the installation in action.
