2. Windows Server 2012 Requirements and ... > Switching Between Install Modes

Switching Between Install Modes

No matter which installation option you chose, thanks to the flexibility of Server 2012, you can switch install modes after installation without losing existing configurations.

What are the benefits of switching from the full interface to a Server Core install or a Server Core install to the full interface? One reason could be the full install is consuming too many server resources. Maybe you want to reduce the threat attack surface that comes with a full installation. Or, perhaps you have become comfortable enough administering the server through PowerShell that you can afford to streamline the server and get rid of the full interface.

Whatever your reason, you have a couple of options to convert from the full install mode. You can convert through a simple PowerShell command, or you can remove the graphical shell of a full install to trim down to a core install.
