Updating server 2016 core

Just a short note: after pausing this task for a while, I decided to stay on GUI. You are not the first one who gave up on Server Core after a while.Also, I finally found and installed manufacturers driver package for server 2016 which solved my problem. It can be quite time consuming to figure out how to configure things on a command prompt in an OS that was designed at its “core” run with a GUI.btw: I am using everything else from computer management 🙂Hi Milos, Please below find an answers to your questions,first question: is there any way I can tell windows to automatically try to find drivers for all devices (ofcourse after I establish network connection) so I don’t have to click on each device?Try configuring windows (with the help of sconfig.cmd) to search windows updates for device drivers.System updates are already configured (I applied updates successfully).Also, windows will install driver automatically but only after I right click on device and select update driver software Is there a way to tell windows to automatically try to find drivers for all devices so I don’t have to click each one of 50 devices? I want windows to retrieve them from windows update site automatically (since they exist there) 🙂 Even if I have them, I don’t like idea installing one by one manually (there are 50 devices).

As I already asked, I need a way to tell windows to install driver(s) automatically like in GUI version: right-click on device and It would be nice if that can be done for all uninstalled drivers, but I would satisfy with one by one solution.Check the following link, Installing Drivers on Windows Server Corethird question: is there a way to use device manager from remote server?Yes, you can use access the device manager of your core server from other computers MMC snap-in.Than I installed desired state: windows 2016 core which is, I must say, working like a charm on 8 years old IBM server (who is not even on microsoft HCL for server 2012).But on this 1 year old FS server, I am having problems with drivers.first question: is there any way I can tell windows to automatically try to find drivers for all devices (ofcourse after I establish network connection) so I don’t have to click on each device? Since I can’t open device manager from remote server, I have managed to see uninstalled devices through Dev Man View and ofcourse, there is the same number of those devices as there is on GUI.third question: is there a way to use device manager from remote server?
