In this session, we explore Server Core, a new minimal installation option included in Windows Server 2008. A Server Core installation provides a minimal environment for running a subset of the server roles, the Active Directory directory service, Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services, Domain Name System (DNS), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), and file, print, and media services. Server Core also can reduce the servicing and management requirements and the attack surface for those server roles. In this webcast, we discuss the architecture of Server Core, in addition to installation, configuration, and administration of Server Core.
