Heyas,

I need to add a DNS SRV records to a Windows 2012 Server Core Machine (No GUI) when I log into this machine only the command line appears. How do I add the DNS record via the command line.

Please bear in mind I am a complete novice with Windows Server 2012.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Heya Dsnegi_25dec,

Thanks for the info but how do I launch Powershell if all I have is the command line box appearing on the Server Core machine.

Ok I have managed to launch Windows Powershell with the command "start powershell". Is there a powershell command I can use to find the name of the "Server Core" machine I am operating on?

Hi DsNegi_25dec,

The next issue is that the New-DNSrecord command doesn't work this is the error message I get, bare in mind I have set-executionpolicy to allsigned in powershell.

new-dnsrecord : The term 'new-dnsrecord' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable
program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
At line:1 char:1
+ new-dnsrecord
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (new-dnsrecord:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

Thank you.

Do you have administrative rights on 2012 Core machine ?

You can download RSAT tools for windows 2012 server which can be run through Win 8 Machine and from there you can add dns tools and add 2012 core server there to manage it from GUI
