Install PowerShell R2 on Server Core

It’s here! PowerShell for Server Core. This is just a quick lesson in how to install it. So, how do you get it?

Once you get Windows Server 2008 Core R2 installed, Type OCLIST. We need to make sure that the following is installed:
NetFx2-ServerCore (There may be additional characters after this)
MicrosoftWindowsPowerShell

If you are missing any of these two, install them with the instructions below. Don’t forget, these are case sensitive.

For NetFx2-ServerCore
OCSetup NetFX2-ServerCore

For MicrosoftWindowsPowerShell
OCSetup MicrosoftWindowsPowerShell

OK, now that the software is installed, navigate to c:\Windows\System32\WIndowsPowerShell\V1.0. Once there, type PowerShell you will notice that the prompt changes to PS. Go ahead and type Get-Command and press Enter If this worked, PowerShell is installed. It is not going to be the pretty blue window, but inside the command prompt. Go ahead and type Write-Host –fore blue “Hello World” and press Enter. You will see the text change color. The color formatting will allow you to make your scripts in Server Core look pretty. Typing Exit will take you back to the command prompt.
