We are just getting into setting up our production virtualized environment and just have a few questions, here is a quick layout of what we have: We will have 2 Poweredge R610's running as our Hosts (server 2008 r2 core) with a Equallogic PS6000e as our SAN. We also have another poweredge server as our management server and will be running SCVMM.
When setting up Server 2008 r2 core, I have read that there are certain commands that need to be run to open up the firewall for things such as, server manager, mmc etc. Also, when I open up sconfig there are 3 options to allow/enable mmc, windows powershell, server manager. What all commands need to be run to get this production setup going? It looks like in Server 2008 core you had to run some other netsh commands for firewall settings but some you dont have to in R2. Can someone explain what needs to be run and what the actual commands are doing?
Thanks for the help
