You are an administrator for a medium-sized business called Terrapin Technologies. Currently, you are running a Windows Server 2003 environment with Windows Server 2003 Active Directory. Your boss has asked you to look into using the Windows Server 2008 Standard edition with the Server Core installation as a solution for minimal attack surface computers at your remote locations. The following roles are required at the remote locations:
• DNS for name resolution
• Print Services for network printers
• Web Server for a Web based application based on ASP.NET
• Active Directory Domain Services
Based on what you know of Server Core, can you deploy all of the roles above to your remote locations? Why or why not?
a. Yes, all of the roles can be installed on Server Core as long as you are running the 64-bit version of Windows Server 2008.
b. No, Active Directory Domain Services and domain controllers are not supported on Server Core.
c. No. Due to the command-line nature of Server Core, you cannot install print drivers for network printers.
d. No, Server Core does not support ASP.NET.
