I have my first installation of server core. I'm using server manager on a Win7 machine to view the server core, it doesn't allow me to add features and roles. I'm wondering if I need to open up something on the firewall as I had to do before I could view disk management.

"You can only manage it locally at a command prompt, or remotely using a Terminal Server connection. A third management option is to manage the server remotely using the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) or command-line tools that support remote use."
