Windows Server Core gives your network enhanced stability, more power and tighter security. Its command-line interface puts everything you love about Linux into your Windows environment. Learn how to deploy and maintain Windows Server Core by watching this Don Jones video training. Don shows you how to: Set up Server Core from the console; support major Server Core rules, including ADDS and IIS; build a self-contained "branch office server" based on Server Core; and use PowerShell scripts to automate and validate your build.

By the time you finished watching, you'll be ready to migrate core infrastructure services to Server Core -- reducing your server maintenance overhead and remotely managing your servers and services.
