On windows server core, how can I copy file located in my local computer to the windows server ?
With the command-line
copy command, perhaps.
Here's the interactive help for it:
C:\>copy /? Copies one or more files to another location. COPY [/D] [/V] [/N] [/Y | /-Y] [/Z] [/L] [/A | /B ] source [/A | /B] [+ source [/A | /B] [+ ...]] [destination [/A | /B]] source Specifies the file or files to be copied. /A Indicates an ASCII text file. /B Indicates a binary file. /D Allow the destination file to be created decrypted destination Specifies the directory and/or filename for the new file(s). /V Verifies that new files are written correctly. /N Uses short filename, if available, when copying a file with a non-8dot3 name. /Y Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an existing destination file. /-Y Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an existing destination file. /Z Copies networked files in restartable mode. /L If the source is a symbolic link, copy the link to the target instead of the actual file the source link points to. The switch /Y may be preset in the COPYCMD environment variable. This may be overridden with /-Y on the command line. Default is to prompt on overwrites unless COPY command is being executed from within a batch script. To append files, specify a single file for destination, but multiple files for source (using wildcards or file1+file2+file3 format). C:\>
Or were you referring to where to copy it?
If you have admin credentials, you can use an administrative share, which would be
\\<server name>\c$ for the root of the C: drive on the server. You can get to the root of other drives the same way.
Or you can use server manager to create a share. Or you can use Computer Management to create a share.
In Windows Explorer on your computer - not the server open up the folder containing the file to you want to copy. Go to Start -> Run and type in
\\<name of the server>\c$ and hit Enter. That should open a new explorer window showing the C: drive on the server - if it asks for a username and password, enter your administrator account credentials on the server. Now you can copy and paste from one explorer window to the other like normal.
