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?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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
