Using RSAT to switch between the GUI and CUI of Windows Server 2012 By Adnan Cartwright, MVP for Windows Server

The past few weeks Adnan and I have been on the road doing Microsoft IT Camps around the state of Florida. He and I have been starting to create a series of articles around topics that are coming from the field visits we have been on. 

One topic that has been brought up by customers is how to start using Windows Azure, so I wrote an article “Step-By-Step” - Setting Windows Azure 90-Day Free Trial Subscription for the “First Time” and at the same time, Adnan Cartwright – our newest Windows Server 2012 MVP wrote “Using RSAT to switch between the GUI and CUI of Windows Server 2012” , nice work man…..

As Adnan states: “Windows Server 2012 introduces the ability to change between the Graphical User Interface (GUI) and the Character User Interface (CUI). There are different ways in which you can do this. Of course you can use PowerShell to add and remove the features to go between Core and Full installation.
We will use the Remote Server and Administration Tool (RSAT) for Windows 8 to add and remove the GUI and CUI. To do this first install a Windows Server 2012 machine and promote it to a domain controller with all of the proper configurations and prerequisites already taken into measure. (It does not need to be a DC in your lab environment. “
