I am probably going to use hyper-v running on windows server 2008 standard SP2 for server consolidation. I was thinking that I would do a VM for the web server. I was reading up on just using server core. I am not a big command line fan, but would do it if I had a nice cheat sheet for everything that mattered when setting the server up with IIS, or do I just end up managing those things remotely.
A. Is there a well known cheat sheet for all the command line things I would need to do?
B. Can I manage the core server completely from a remote system, so A doesn’t matter? C. Any there really any obvious gotchas with a core other than you can’t upgrade after the fact?
D. Any pointers to some good tutorials/blogs on this subject?
E. Should I just stick with Full install or do the Core install?
