Unable to connect to my server core box with RSAT
Posted on 2014-04-16
Here is the situation. I have just built a computer running Server 2012 R2 Core (the computer is named DMZDNS, it's IP is 10.1.13.13). This computer is in our DMZ (therefore not in our domain). I installed the DNS role on this computer. Now I want to configure DNS using the RSAT. I installed RSAT for Windows 8.1 onto my workstation. When I try to 10.1.13.13 via DNS Manager, I get a message stating the server is unavailable. I can ping 10.1.13.13 and receive replies. I can remote desktop into 10.1.13.13 without any issues. When I go into sconfig on 10.1.13.13, remote management is enabled.
I though the issue may be a firewall rule. I tried the following:
enable-netfirewallrule -displayname "remote administration"
I get a message stating that no msft_netfirewallrule objects found with property 'displayname' equal to 'remote administration'
Any ideas as to what I'm missing?
Thanks in advance.
