AppLocker on Server Core? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am keen to understanding whether AppLocker is supported on Windows Server 2012 Server Core.  From the following article, it sounds like it should be possible:

    Windows PowerShell can used to manage AppLocker on Server Core installations using the AppLocker cmdlets and, if administered within a GPO, the Group Policy cmdlets. For more information, see the AppLocker PowerShell Command Reference.

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831440.aspx

    Having tried to test this, it looks like switching to Server Core removes the Application Identity service, which I understand is required for enforcement of AppLocker rules. 

    My online searches failed to find a definitive answer.

    Thanks

  • Hi Tony,


    AppLocker isn't supported on 2012 Server Core edition. Please use normal 2012 with GUI to manage AppLocker.
