Hi all,

I'm trying to remember a third party bit off software that you can use to administer a server core operating system. I can't remember what it is called but after installed you get a GUI to do some standard stuff - any remember the name?

sconfig is built in, there is also core config http://coreconfig.codeplex.com/ 

You can also use tools against the box remotely.  In newer versions you can add the GUI back to core if you ever need it.

Thanks

Mike
