Michael Khanin Michael Khanin Profile: Michael Khanin

Enable CPU virtualisation assistance and DEP in the BIOS.
Install Windows Server 2008 Enterprise x64 (Core Installation).
Determine the NIC ID: netsh interface ipv4 show interfaces.
Set the IP address for NIC, let say for NIC #2: netsh interface ipv4 set address name=”2″ source=static address= mask= gateway=
Set the DNS: netsh interface ipv4 add dnsserver name=”2″ address= index=1.
Rename server: netdom renamecomputer %computername% /NewName:HyperSvr1.
Reboot for that to take effect: shutdown /r /t 0.
Join it to domain: netdom join %computername% /domain:admininfo.local /userd:administrator /passwordd:*.
Reboot for that to take effect: shutdown /r /t 0.
Copy CoreConfigurator onto the Core server and configured any users, groups, enabled RDP, firewall settings, etc…
Download and copy the Hyper-V update onto the server.
Install the Hyper-V update: wusa.exe Windows6.0-KB950050-x64.msu.
Install the Hyper-V role: start /w ocsetup.exe Microsoft-Hyper-V.
Download and install Remote Management for Windows Vista.

    Is there a way I can bring up/view the VM's running on a Core Server from the Core Server itself - e.g. not remotely?
