"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

At the prompt you can run sconfig to do some basic admin tasks like updates. However, you should be managing the server remotely from an administrative workstation or server.

The Server Configuration utility (Sconfig) provides a text-based menu system that makes it easy to do the following:

Configure domain or workgroup membership
Change a server’s name
Add a local Administrator account
Configure remote management features
Configure Windows Update settings
Download and install Windows updates
Enable or disable Remote Desktop
Configure network settings for TCP/IP
Configure the date and time
Log off, restart, or shut down

Here is a useful example. You can use Sconfig to install Windows PowerShell by following these simple steps:
1. At the command prompt, type sconfig.
2. At the menu prompt, enter 4, and then enter 2.
3. When the installation process is complete, you are prompted to restart the computer. Click Yes.
