First W2008 Server Core Installation

This post is simply notes for me, but I hope you find them useful.

Important commands for Server Core:

  • Rename server: netdom renamecomputer <oldName> /NewName <newName>
  • Reboot server: shutdown /r /t 0
  • Enter license key: slmgr -ipk <License Key with Dashes>
  • Activate Windows: slmgr -ato
  • Allow RDP: netsh firewall set portopening tcp 3389 "Remote Desktop"
  • Allow ping: netsh firewall set icmpsetting 8
    • DISallow ping: netsh firewall set icmpsetting 8 disable
  • To logoff: logoff
  • To get a command prompt back:
    • Ctrl+Alt+Delete
    • 'Start Task Manager'
    • 'New Task'
    • 'cmd'
  • Enable Remote Admin: Netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group=“remote administration” new enable=yes

Good resources out there:
