Corefig for Windows Server 2012 Core and Hyper-V Server 2012

Building on the foundation provided by the CoreConfig team on Core Configurator 2.0 (http://coreconfig.codeplex.com), Corefig is a PowerShell-based GUI tool to configure the 2012 releases of Server Core and Hyper-V Server.

The application structure remains largely intact from the CoreConfig product but introduces several enhancements and leverages several of the new cmdlets.

Features carried forward:
  • Server renaming and domain joining
  • Role and feature management
  • Service control
  • Remote Desktop Host and WinRM configuration
  • Windows Update settings
  • Display settings configuration
  • Windows firewall settings
  • Driver installation
  • Regional settings (keyboard, date and time)
  • Add Programs
  • Network card settings, including TCP/IP
  • Proxy configuration
  • Local group membership
  • Share management
  • iSCSI Configuration (connecting to remote targets)
  • View, start, and stop virtual machines
  • Windows Server licensing

What's Changed:
At this time, most of the change are under the hood.
  • Fully localization-ready (US English is the only current language)
  • Wording made more clear
  • Customer Improvement Experience nag screens removed
  • WSF file sets PowerShell Execution Policy to "RemoteSigned" instead of "Unrestricted"
  • More operation consistency
    • Less writing to the console and more writing to the log
    • Fewer pop-up windows notifying of success
  • Some interface clean-up
  • Domain-controller promotion/demotion removed
