When the Core-alternative of Windows Server was introduced in 2008, not a lot of people saw the greatness. A few tried it once, some tried it twice and others got hooked! Fellow administrators often complain that it’s so hard to administer the roles and features of it. Sander Berkouwer and myself, who both fall into the third category of people that got hooked are now proud to present:
THE SERVER CORE REMOTE MANAGEMENT WHITEPAPER
What does it contain? Here’s a small section of the table of contents:

Overview of remote management methods
Remotely managing your Server Core using Compmgmt.msc

This whitepaper contains everything you need to know to remotely manage your Core-box. No more fumbling around in that CMD-window if you don’t want to.
