Taking a new Windows Server 2012 installation, I need to get it fit for hosting and automation.
That means getting it ready for remote PowerShell and DSC, which means installing the latest version of the Windows Management Framework, and then configuring WinRM for HTTPS and Basic Authentication.
I've not really 'engineered' Windows since 2008, but it seems that solving this egg-chicken problem requires a mouse and a browser.
And yet a couple of non-GUI footprints of Windows Server exist today, so what's the quick solution to getting these basics setup (at a command line) so that I can move on to automating the more advanced configuration of the host?
It kinda strikes me that there should be a single CmdLet in-the-box to get this fundamental stuff up and going.
