This article enumerates the things you need to consider when running Deep Security Agent with Windows 2012 Server Core.
See the list below for the considerations:
- Deep Security does not support switching the Windows 2012 server mode between Server Core and Full (GUI) modes after the Deep Security Agent is installed.
- If you are using Server Core mode in a Hyper-V environment, you need the Hyper-V Manager to remotely manage the Server Core computer from another computer. When the Server Core computer has the Deep Security Agent installed and Firewall enabled, the Firewall will block the remote management connection. To remotely manage the Server Core computer, turn off the Firewall module.
- Hyper-V has a migration function to move a guest virtual manager from one Hyper-V server to another. The Deep Security Firewall module will block the connection between Hyper-V servers, so you will need to turn off the Firewall module to use the migration function.
