  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I know Windows Server 2008 Server Core can be installed as sccm agent. But all the components like software updates, software distribution, asset intelligence, software & hardware inventory also can be used? I would like to know what components cannot be done for Windows Server 2008 Server Core as sccm agent. Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Clients are supported on both Server Core Installations of Windows Server 2008 and on full installations of Windows Server 2008.

    However, desired configuration management and out-of-band management are supported only on full installations of Windows Server 2008.

    The other client features are supported on Windows Server 2008 Server core.

  • Thanks for the reply. So all other components are supported besides these two features?
