How can you convert a Desktop Experience edition of Windows Server 2016 to a Core edition? For previous insider builds you use the powershell
uninstall-windowsfeature cmdlet to remove features such as
server-gui-mgmt-infra to convert a Desktop Experience edition to a Core edition, but these features no longer exist in the RTM version.
I'd like to start getting some Windows Server 2016 Core VMs up and running. As it is not yet available on MSDN i'm forced to use the evaluation ISO. This works fine in the long term (>180 days) if you want to use Desktop Experience editions, as you can change the evaluation edition to a licensed edition with a product key and
dism.exe /online /set-edition:ServerDatacenter /productkey:00000-00000-00000-00000-00000 /accepteula but this wont work with the Core editions of Server 2016 as
dism.exe /get-targeteditions doesnt list any options to change it to a non-evaluation edition. So right now i'm forced to either wait a few weeks for it to become available on MSDN, or convert a desktop experience edition to a core edition as i'd need these VMs to work past 180 days.
