New blog and some interesting Win2k8 tidbits

While looking for information on how to administer a server core install, I came across a new blog resource. I was able to get a list of command line commands that can be used to get your server core install off to a good start. When the Core installation is finished, you have a server with an unknown name, with a blank administrator’s password in a workgroup.

To get it configured you will need these commands:

net user administrator *
netdom renamecomputer /NewName:
netsh interface ipv4 show interfaces
netsh interface ipv4 set address name=”” source=static address= mask= gateway=
netsh interface ipv4 add dnsserver name=”” address=index=1
netdom join /domain: /userd: /passwordd:*

And a few optional ones:

Cscript C:WindowsSystem32Scregedit.wsf /ar 0
WinRM quickconfigcontrol timedate.cpl
control intl.cpl
Slmgr.vbs -ato
start /w ocsetup /?
