Remote Manage Workgroup Windows Server 2016 Core

I wrote an article about how to manage Windows Server 2016 TP remotely. Today I had some spare time to re-build my lab environment by the latest release of Windows Server 2016 Core. It’s easy to remotely manage a Windows Server in a domain, but a trick for workgroup Windows Server. Following is an improved procedure.

One Windows Server 2016 Core

  1. Run sconfig command on Windows Server 2016 Core.
  2. Go to Configure Remote ManagementEnable Remote Management to enable remote management.
  3. Then enable responding to ping in same page.
  4. Enable NetBIOS protocol on the firewall by PowerShell.
    Set-NetFirewallRule -Name FPS-NB_Name-In-UDP -Enabled True
    Set-NetFirewallRule -Name FPS-NB_Name-Out-UDP -Enabled True

One client Windows 10

  1. Install Remote Server Administration Tools on the client Windows 10.
  2. Reboot the client.
  3. Open “Server Manager“.
  4. Add the Windows Server 2016 Core machine by IP address.
  5. Go to “All Servers” in “Server Manager“.
  6. Right-click the newly added server – “Managed As…“.
  7. Enter the administrator credential of the target server. Format is “workgroup/Administrator”.  For example, my workgroup is “DC”, so the account is “dc/Administrator”.
