Starting with Windows Server 2008, Microsoft brought new concept the Server Core, they suggested when the servers are only used to host applications and you generally do not have to do any other work on them, so why to waste their resources on unnecessary GUI. Its something like VW reducing 200 Kgs of weight off a 3 ton SUV and calling it more frugal and fuel-efficient. Anyway’s, I will keep my automobile passion off this article and will just talk about my latest encounter with a Windows 2008R2 Core.
Yes, despite of numerous servers I come across in my Day to Day life only very rare of them are Windows Server Core, The situation was very typical, this Windows 2008R2 Core was actually a Hyper V server, it had a couple of machines on it and one of the virtual’s was the ONLY Domain Controller of the very same domain of which this server was a Part. Yes this wasn’t the most perfect domain design which one can ask for.
