  1. Windows Server Core and (the free) Hyper-V Server Core are GUI-less versions of Windows that can be administered remotely with GUI tools. We've recently seen an uptick in requests for deployment of the collector to these platforms, as Windows introduces a lot of overhead with the addition of the GUI; the other compelling reason to go this route being that Hyper-V Core is a free license of Windows from Microsoft (similar to the free flavor of ESXi, only it can run a Windows collector!) Microsoft Documentation: Managing a Server Core Server Configure Server Core with the SConfig command Option A: Remote Desktop Install Establish a remote desktop session to the Server Core server using the instructions provided by Microsoft. Within the standard Command shell, type the word "PowerShell" to load a PowerShell session. Add a new (Windows) LogicMonitor Collector in your portal, and select the PowerShell command instead of the download. Paste (and run) the PowerShell command into the open PowerShell windows within the Remote Desktop Session on the Server Core server. You'll see a message indicating that the download has started, and after some time, the normal InstallShield Wizard will launch as expected. Complete the collector account configuration and proceed as you would with an OS with a GUI. Collect on! Additional methods are certainly possible (Windows Admin Center, Remote PowerShell, more?) and as I have a chance to test/ validate, I will continue to update this post.
