Running NanoServers On Server 2016 With PowerShell 5.1


Not a subscriber? Start your free week.

CBT Nuggets trainer Garth Shulte runs through the differences between PowerShell 5 on Windows 10, and PowerShell 5.1 on Server 2016. He then uses PowerShell 5.1 on Server 2016 TP5 to spin up a NanoServer, demonstrates the copy parameter, and then crashes the Nano. Wait. What?! Yup. Blue screened it.

Our favorite quote from the webinar (16:14): “Oh no. Our Nano is dead. What did we do?”

And that’s the risk of demoing beta software.

Fast forward a bit. He gives the NanoServer a little more memory, gets it running, and shows off the NanoServer console.

Just a little sneak peak into his (crash-free) Server 2016 and PowerShell 5 training that’s coming soon. In the meantime, you can use Garth’s PowerShell 4.0 training to get a head start.
