Windows Server 2019 – Roles available in Server Core

How to manage remote IIS on Windows Server 2019

Server Core is obviously a restricted form of the operating system, and some of the roles inside Windows Server are just not designed to work properly within that limited context. Fortunately for us, most of them are, which enables Server 2019 administrators to deploy most of their critical infrastructure via the more secure Server Core platform. Here is a list of the roles that are currently supported to run on a Windows Server 2019 Server Core instance:

  • Active Directory Certificate Services
  • Active Directory Domain Services
  • Active Directory Federation Services
  • Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services
  • Active Directory Rights Management Services
  • Device Health Attestation
  • DHCP Server
  • DNS Server
  • File Services
  • Host Guardian Service
  • Hyper-V
  • Print and Document Services
  • Remote Access
  • Volume Activation Services
  • Web Server (IIS)
  • Windows Server Update Services
