Wednesday: Server Core and Group Policy

I’ve been to two sessions this morning. One on Group Policy where I picked up some excellent tips on debugging and tracking GP’s and an excellent presentation on Server 2008 Core by Mark Minasi.

I will definitely be writing a lot more about Server Core and the GP information I learnt today but one of his very useful tips that applies to other systems was this command:

wmic qfe list > outputfile.txt

This outputs a list of all patches applied on the computer as well as the support URL’s, install date and other information.
