Press CTRL-ALT-DEL and this will show you the Task Manager, open File -> Run -> cmd

That does not work on Server 2008 Core. Since there is no GUI installed I use a different Server 2008 box (Vista also works but we are not running any Vista clients) to add a snap-in and use the snap-in to administer the Core box.

It seems the issue has to do with the RDP works. I am using RDP to get to a server 2008 box that has the admin interface installed for the server 2008 core box. If I am at the server 2008 box and close the command prompt I can reopen it using Ctrol-Alt-Del to get Task Manager then do a run command. if I remote to the server 2008 box I cannot launch Task Manager on the core box, too many sessions removed  I gues.

I will rebuild my PC soon with Win7 and run the core box from my Win 7 desktop.
