Q. How do I enable remote management of a Server Core installation?

A. A. Server Core installations have very few local-management capabilities, except through the command line. To use the remote-management graphical tools, you must enable the remote-administration firewall exception by using the following command:

netsh firewall set service type=remoteadmin mode=enable
