Introduction:
Question about Window Server releases supported in CA Automation Point.
Question:
We currently have 11.5.3 Automation Point server running on Window server R2008 R2. I see that it supports Windows Server R2012 R2, but it says GUI only. Please explain what that means.

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 (Server with a GUI only) Foundation, Essentials, Standard, Data Center x64 only.
Environment:
CA Automation Point 11.5.3
Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2
Answer:
If you look at the following Wikipedia entry for Windows Server 2102, it mentions only two installation options: Server Core and Server with GUI options. We do not support the Server Core install option (A.K.A. a headless server) because several of the tools in Automation Point require a GUI (e.g. AP Desktop, Notification Manager, and Configuration Manager).
