Server Core is upon us! With Windows Server 2012 the default installation option is Server Core, which provides no GUI whatsoever. A problem, right? Wrong.One of the nifty new features in Server 2012 is that it gives us the ability to switch between a GUI version and a Core version at will.To go GUI to Core enter the following into PowerShell:-Uninstall-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra -Restart(This task can also be performed through Server Manager – Features)To go Core to GUI enter the following into PowerShell:-Install-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra,Server-Gui-Shell –RestartThis provides us with some really nice abilities, e.g. Install Server 2012 as GUI, configure to your liking and then switch to Core – reducing space and decreasing the attack surface in the process.Cool eh?Neil
