For those who want to try out Windows Server 2008 Core but is really hesitant because of not being used to command line interface. Here is a great tool from Guy Teverovsky:

The tool is very simple and straightforward (I really like things that way). Its very light weight also so that you don’t use up all the resources for your server core.

Thanks to Mafi_mok (Faelmar), Jay-R Barrios and Sir Norman for bringing this up to me. I’m a big command line fan still but when I forget some commands I turn to the configurator. (but I tend to remove it after I use it :D)

What’s next? I heard from those guys above that they have actually installed .net and powershell on Server Core!
