After you add the roles using ocsetup or dism, it’s often easier to configure the role with the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) from a remote computer. For example, if you enable the DHCP server role on a Server Core computer named SC1, you can then use another computer with a full installation (not Server Core) to remotely connect to SC1 and configure the DHCP server role. First, enter the following line at the Server Core prompt to modify the firewall to enable remote administration of the DHCP server:

netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="dhcp server"
new enable=yes

You can then use the DHCP console from another server with the following steps.

1.Launch the DHCP Server console.
2.Right-click DHCP and select Add Server. Type the name of the Server Core server hosting DHCP. Your display should look similar to Figure 1.


In the display, the has already been added to the DHCP console and shows in the background. This enables you to see what it looks like when it’s been added. Notice that the DHCP server has up arrows on the IPv4 and IPv6 nodes indicating that the server has been authorized and scopes have been configured and activated. However, the Server Core DHCP server has not been authorized yet.

3.Click OK to add the server.
4.After the server has been added, you can right-click the server and select Authorize. You can then configure the DHCP server from the console.

You can enable remote administration using any MMC with the following command:

netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="remote administration"
new enable=yes

You can disable remote administration using any MMC with the following command. Note that you only change enable=yes to enable=no.

netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="remote administration"
new enable=no

You can also enable remote administration of specific consoles (such as just the DHCP server console as shown earlier). Use the following syntax to enable specific consoles:

netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="rule-group-name"
new enable=yes

The following table shows the rule group name that you substitute in the command.

The preceding table is not all inclusive. To view a list of all rule groups, use the following command:

netsh advfirewall firewall show rule name=all | more


The | more at the end of the command enables you to view the rules one screen at a time. Use Enter to show the rules one line at a time, or the spacebar to show the rules one page at a time. If you press Ctrl+C, it stops the display.
