5.30. How To Configure Windows Server Core as a WEF Collector in Supercharger

This article assumes that you have the Server Core collector:

  1. In Supercharger Manager, click on Local Machine in the left menu.
  2. Click on the "Download and launch collector installer" link.
  3. Now we need to share a folder on Server Core so that we can copy the installer to the server. Connect to Server Core's cmd line and share your folder. Below we are just sharing the root.
  4. From Supercharger Manager server connect to the shared folder from step 3. Copy the installer to that folder.
  5. In Supercharger go back to the Local Machine tab on the left menu. Make a note of the SQL Server and the Authenticator.
  6. In Server Core, using cmd line or PowerShell run the installer. You will have to run this command from the folder where the installer is saved: 
    .\SuperchargerControllerSetup.exe /quiet /L*V  C:\msi.log /qn SERVER_PROP="[insert SQL Server DNS name]" AUTH_PROP="[insert Authenticator]" 
    **Note we have added the "/L*V C:\msi.log" switch which is optional but will help if you have any errors during the install.
  7. You should see some installer dialogues and then the C:\ prompt. The dialogues should disappear after a few seconds.
  8. In Supercharger Manager you should soon see the Approve button for the new collector.

You can now use this collector as you would with a regular server OS.‚Äč
