Is there a way to run AD Best Practices analyzer from the powershell to verify DC health? need it for Core 2012. Dont have GUI. What other powershell scripts can I run to verify the new DC and DNS health and make sure that there are no errors? will repadmin and dcdiag will work the same in the server core? How to view the event viewer in the Core 2012 version?

Please help. I am doing promoting Server Core 2012 first time. Thank you

If you want to use GUI

Remote management tools or
Add the Core server to a standard 2012 server manager dashboard.

Do I need the 2012 server standard only ? Would it work with Server Manager and remote management tools on 2008 R2 server? I couldn't make it work from 2008 R 2 server
