Introduction

Welcome to the Windows Server 2008 Server Core Administrator’s Pocket Consultant. Server Core is a new installation option available for Windows Server 2008 that has a reduced servicing footprint and is designed for running a specific set of server roles for dedicated use. Enterprises have been asking for a book like this for a while, because Server Core can help branch offices, data centers, and other environments significantly reduce the cost involved with deploying and managing servers running Microsoft Windows. I hope you find that this book meets your needs and answers any questions you may have about Server Core; feel free to use my personal contact info found later in this Introduction to send me questions.
