For those that have access to the new build released in December, this post will cover some new items in Server Core. The build is supposed to be available as part of the January MSDN, so hopefully more of you will have access when that comes out.
There are two new command line tools in the latest Server Core build:
There is a new optional feature included: WINS. The package name for installation is WINS-SC.
Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS, formerly ADAM) is now a role supported on Server Core.
We have a few more changes in the works for Beta 3.
I've been reading up on Longhorn and Core Server. This is a scaled down non GUI windows version.
That is correct, some of my earlier posts provide an overview.
Btw, I forgot to include AD LDS (aka ADAM) as a new role in my original post, so I have updated the post to include it.
