Hi,

Couldn't you add the GUI, install the product, configure it as necessary, then remove the GUI component? Services should auto start and you could still see logs, etc from CLI. From there you can autoupdate, etc. If it breaks, add the GUI back for more troubleshooting.

Add GUI: Add-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Shell, Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra

Remove GUI: Remove-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Shell, Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra

Could do that. But that's not the issue. The issue is the official support.

The service application is no problem at all to install on a real core server through the powershell/cmd window.

Also installing the GUI is several of hundreds MB which also requires a server reboot, which would beat the purpose - but that is also beyond the scope of the question.

Regards, Johnny
