Initial Server 2012 Core configuration using PowerShell

Just for future reference to myself.

  1. Install Server Core 2012 as usual.
  2. Login. Change the IP address thus:
  3. Specify DNS server addresses:
  4. Rename the computer:
  5. Restart the computer so the name change takes effect.
  6. Update: Rename the computer & join the domain (thanks to Daniel Streefkerf (check out his blog, if you like my blog posts you’ll surely enjoy his!) for pointing this out – since PowerShell 3.0 the Add-Computer cmdlet has a -NewName switch that lets you rename and add/ move a computer):

Update: If you want to do NIC teaming, do the following after step 1.

Now continue with assigning IP address etc, but use the newly created Team adapter instead.
