Free Server Core Training: Assign a Computer Name to Server Core and Join It to a DomainBy Ed Liberman
In my last video, I showed you how to activate a newly installed Server Core and we talked a little bit about what Server Core is and what it does.
Today we’re going a step further. I’ll show you how to assign a computer name to your Server Core so it can be recognized on the network. I’ll also show you how to take a Server Core computer and join it to your company’s domain so it can participate in resource sharing.
Your Server Core is put in place to provide services and resources to other computers, that’s why naming it and joining it to a domain are two essential tasks.
As I explained in my last post, Server Core is useful in many different situations and typically it’s going to be your work mule. Once you get it set up you’ll basically want to leave it alone, since there’s no GUI and making changes is not a quick and easy task.
So let’s go over assigning your Server Core a name and join it to a local domain.
