Server Core – What's in it for me?

Server Core, it’s sweet isn’t it? Well, it seems there’s a few of us who actually believe it is. There seems to be a huge misunderstanding that it’s hard to configure, hard to use and that it has to defend itself every time someone even thinks about selecting it from the install menu.

In a few videos I’ve shown how to install it, initial configuration and lastly how to install and configure a failover-cluster with iscsi on Server Core.

If you need more help and maybe some stuff to print out you can find it here:

As you might have guessed by now, there’s a bunch of guides. There’s a bunch of users. CMD will get you eventually and rule the world probably.
