Create custom Nano server 2016 VHD

Create nano server







I built this script so people easily can get a start and try their Nano server 2016 within a couple of minutes. I have only tried it with Windows server 2016 Technical preview 4. It is pretty straight forward the script launches a windows where you can name your server and check the functions you want, add the disk image och create the server:

1. Enter namne of VHD
2. Check the functions you want to add and press button add server, you can add multiple server if you want to.
3. Press button Add Disk Image to point out windows 2016 iso.
4. Press button create servers to start building VHDs.
5. Enter Administrator password
6. You ne VHD will be stored in C:\Temp_NanoServer

I have not tried all functions, hopefully they all work.

First help desk GUI tool

helpdeskDelivered my first GUI tool to our help desk today. They needed a tool to find out which users populated distribution groups and they also wanted to be able to export three different attributes to a csv. I did the GUI design in visual studio and used XAML because it looks a little nicer then the old windows forms. the application got real-time check against the Active directory as you type to check if the group exist and it doesn´t enable the list user(Lista användare) button until you type the name of a group that exist. When the listing is done you can choose which attributes to export. This is a 1.0 and it doesn’t handle nested groups, if they want that functionality or some other functionality in the future I will update this post.
