Installation of remote probe on windows server core



Hi guys, I have many branch location that are site-to-site connected with headquarters. In these branches we have only network devices (active-5 pieces). I wanna monitor them by adding small probes. Can remote probes be installed on windows server core?

We cannot guarantee this to work, since Windows Servers in Core mode are not officially supported.
