Issue/Introduction

Does the monitoring (UIM/Nimsoft) work with Windows Server Core 2019? We are planning to go to Server 2019 Core with Exchange servers 2019. We would like to find out if Nimsoft can pull from Exchange logs?

Cause

- question on supported versions

Environment

Release : 20.3x

Resolution

Windows 2019 (Datacenter, Standard) are supported.

But the Server 'Core' option is a minimal installation option that is available when you are deploying the Standard or Datacenter edition of Windows Server. Server Core includes most but not all server roles. Server Core has a smaller disk footprint, and therefore a smaller attack surface due to a smaller code base.

Server 2019 Core - which is the minimal installation option that comes without a GUI. Instead of the traditional desktop interface, a Core installation is designed to be managed via the command line using Windows PowerShell. While Core includes most of the standard server roles, it leaves out many support features that aren’t required for the most common applications.

Currently, we do not test nor officially support Windows Server 2019 Core.
