  • Connecting Windows Server 2008 with a CLI

    Does anyone know of a way to remotely manage / administer Windows Server using CLI? If so, what's the process to get this done? I know with Windows Server 2008 Server Core, it's easy with CLI to connect servers but I'm looking at it's administration capability. Thank you.

    It seems that our CLI Linux VMware VMs lose their time syncing quite often. Is this common, or something strange we are dealing with. If it is actually common, how do you keep your VM time in sync? Has anyone else noticed this? What do other people do to keep their VM time in sync?
