    Just thought I'd ask.

    I've installed one DC with 2008 Standard, onto a Vista box, using VPC2007. I have now also installed a second server - a Server Core server - as per my 70-640 MS Training Kit.

    Question is: does anyone actually use Server Core in normal day to day, and is it any better/worse?

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit: I put this in the Virtualisation piece but it's obviously not necessrily the right place. Apologies.

    I don't, not in a real world environment anyway (and since I passed the exam, not in a virtual world either :) ).

    Am actually still studying the Ms press MCITP self-paced traning kit(exam 70-646) Windows server administration by Ian McLean and Orin Thomas.....

    Server core is just a stripped down version of an edition of windows server 2008...

    It has two primary benefits;

    --Reduced attack surface

    --Lower hardware requirements

    :p

    We've got a hyper-v setup with full install just for the fact that we don't run vista or any other server 2008 host to administer the hyper-v, so the answer from me is no :) long way for a shortcut lol
