[Updated: 23 Dec 2012]

Getting old and cannot remember some command. Time to compile and updated into here as the place to refer when configure server core or Hyper-V Server 2012.

1. To perform basis server configuration on Server Core and Hyper-V Server 2012

Type “sconfig”


2. Compare to previous version, you no longer can enable Failover clustering from sconfig for Hyper-V Server 2012. However, you can Install Failover Clustering feature by using Powershell

Install-WindowsFeature Failover-Clustering


3. To disable Windows Firewall by using Powershell. This come handy when you want to temporary disable windows firewall.

netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state off


Do remember to enable back Windows Firewall after configuration.

4. To view features that has enable/disable

dism /online /get-features


5. To install features (in case you require). Example:- .Net Framework 2 and Windows Powershell

dism /online /enable-feature:NetFx2-ServerCore
dism /online /enable-feature:MicrosoftWindowsPowerShell
dism /online /enable-feature:NetFx2-ServerCore-WOW64

More command will update later. Stay Tuned
