I would like to setup a machine with Windows Server 2008 R2 Server Core and install following server roles:
- Active Directory Domain Services
- Active Directory Federation Services
- Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (I'm not sure whether I actually need this one - see note below)
I'm obviously going to install Enterprise Edition.
Can I have an AD administration graphical user interface to manage Active Directory on Server Core machine? I would really like to have it, because I'm not so keen to do stuff using power-shell, because I've never managed AD as well, so a GUI would be much more helpful, because I could at least visualize it a bit better and maybe understand AD structures.
Note: I'm setting up development environment machine as well and installing Sharepoint Foundation 2010 on in so it would use this AD machine.
