Because Nano Server does not have an interactive log-on nor remote desktop capabilities, all management will be completed from a remote system using Windows PowerShell.
Since we did not add Nano Server to the domain, we need to add the Nano Server system to trusted hosts on our management machine so we can manage it remotely:
- Replace the IP Address with the IP Address of your Nano Server:
Set-Item WSMan:\localhost\Client\TrustedHosts "172.16.20.185" -Force
- Create a remote PowerShell session by running the following command:
$NanoIP = "172.16.20.185"$NanoCred = Get-Credential ~\Administrator $Session = New-PSSession -ComputerName $NanoIP -Credential $NanoCred
