Windows Server 2016 without graphical environment on Raspberry PI 3

Thu Jun 07, 2018 6:04 pm

Good morning everyone.
I recently bought a raspberry Pi 3 Model B, and I would be going to use it to create an Active Directory server and WAMP/LAMP.
I then tried to use Ubuntu Server for the purpose, but I could not find a system to achieve the first goal.
So I would like to know: Is it possible to install Windows Server 2016 without graphical environment on Raspberry Pi 3 Model B? From the Microsoft site I read that i just need 512MB of RAM, so it seems feasible...
Thank you in advance for the help.

Not possible. The Windows stuff for Raspberries is NOT a fully fledged system, it's trimmed down run UWP C#, VB and python stuff only.

It should however be possible to set up what you want under Linux.

Use Raspbian rather than Ubuntu, and there shoudl be plenty of tutorials on the web for setting up a standard Linux install as a LAMP server etc.

Not sure about the Active directory bit, but this might help https://www.techrepublic.com/article/ho ... amba-tool/

Samba AD works fine under Raspbian, been running it for many months on my domain. 1 x AD domain controllers, 4 x PI servers and 1 x Windoze 10. Search the net, that where I got my info. Out of the country at the moments so cannot, for now, supply further details.
