New free tool ..COREFIG from codeplex

I have created a new GUI powershell Hyperv manager called PSHVM .. PSHVM.codeplex.com and I also intergrated it with corefig1.1, check it out or see my post about it http://stephanco.blogspot.com/2013/08/pshvm30-preview-and-it-releases-8162013.html

Corefig 1.1 for Windows Server 2012 Core and Hyper-V 3.0

Building on the foundation provided by the CoreConfig team on Core Configurator 2.0 (http://coreconfig.codeplex.com), Corefig is a PowerShell-based GUI tool to configure the 2012 releases of Server Core and Hyper-V Server.

The application structure remains largely intact from the CoreConfig product but introduces several enhancements and leverages several of the new cmdlets.

Features carried forward:
  • Server renaming and domain joining
  • Role and feature management
  • Service control
  • Remote Desktop Host and WinRM configuration
  • Windows Update settings
  • Display settings configuration
  • Windows firewall settings
  • Driver installation
  • Regional settings (keyboard, date and time)
  • Add Programs
  • Network card settings, including TCP/IP
  • Proxy configuration
  • Local group membership
  • Share management
  • iSCSI Configuration (connecting to remote targets)
  • View, start, and stop virtual machines
  • Windows Server licensing
I found it to be helpful but not overly so.... I has some weirdness to it that makes it awkward to use and yes it does some things that sconfig (the blue screen menu tool) does not do, it just lacks polish and still does not really get into the creation and management of hyper-v VM's
for that go to pshvm.codeplex.com.

You will need to:
Open Powershell prompt
Type Set-ExecutionPolicy unrestricted and press Enter, answer Yes to allow the change.
This will allow you to run the PS1 files.
