  • Question

  • Windows 2008 Standard  x86 Server Core, Windows 7 Enterprise x86
    Installed RSAT on Windows 7 computer which is joined to the domain
    Running Server Manager on Windows 7 computer to connect to Windows 2008 Standard x86 Server Core triggers this error;
    Firewall updated, winrm configured on both server core & client.
    PS: It is 2008 Standard & not R2. Is it true that user cant connect to Server Core 2008 using server manager from Windows 7 computer? Thanks in advance.

  • Strange that no one ever had this issue with the combination I have

    Thanks for help

    Mods, please close this thread, it appears there's no way around it but to upgrade to R2. No markings or votings but I'd like to thank for hosting this question.

    Thanks for attempting though.

  • It also helps with Server Core. Check the section:

    For a remote server that is running a Server Core installation of Windows Server 2008 R2

  • It's indeed weird. You could try the R2 article tho if you are really to reinstall the OS.
