How to configure setting of server core by 1 command:-

One of the first tasks an administrator must do after building a Windows Server Core machine is set the network address and configure the machine name and domain membership.  There are command line tools for all of those individual features but Microsoft included a useful command called sconfig that allows you to quickly configure basic server settings.
Simply type in sconfig on the command prompt and follow the on screen instructions:

Using Server Configuration you will be able to:
·                                 Configure machine name.
·                                 Join a domain or set workgroup name.
·                                 Configure local administrator accounts. 
·                                 Configure Remove Management settings. 
·                                 Enable Automatic Windows Update.
·                                 Manually install Windows Updates.
·                                 Enable/Disable Remote Desktop.
·                                 Configure Network Settings such as IP address and DNS servers.
·                                 Set the date and time. 
Logoff, restart and shutdown the server

With Offline Files you can select a folder at a networking place, synchronize, disconnect your notebook and edit documents, spreadsheets etc in the local version of the folder. When you connect to the networking place again, all changes will be synchronized!

Note: If you haven’t installed the Desktop Experience feature before you install Windows Mobile Device Center, you will get the error: The Update could not be installed because at least one Windows component required by Windows Mobile Device Center is missing.
2. In the Start menu click Control Panel.
- If you use the Modern View, click the Network and Internet section and click Enable offline Files.
