Windows Server 2008 R2 Easy Admin
One feature that was available in Hyper-V server (not Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V enabled) was a text based config menu to set the IP address, computer name etc… Well this guy is now available in Server Core on Windows Server 2008 R2. The command is sconfig.exe and allows a text menu based config of all the standard options that previously needed a number of commands (think netsh, net computer etc..) or Core Configurator to be installed.
This will greatly help IT Pros get their Server Core installations up and moving. Also don’t forget that Server Manager can now be used to connect to remote installations and that includes Server Core also. All up making Server Core management a little nicer.
P.S don’t forget that Powershell is there too
