1709 有何不同?What's different about 1709?

Windows Server 版本 1709 在 Server Core 模式下執行。Windows Server, version 1709 runs in Server Core mode. 這表示沒有本機主控台或圖形化使用者介面,因此您會從遠端進行管理。That means there is no local console or graphical user interface, so you manage it remotely. 不過,卻提供了很大的優勢,例如硬體需求更低、攻擊面大幅縮小,以及需要的更新次數減少。However, it offers great advantages such as smaller hardware requirements, much smaller attack surface, and a reduction in the need for updates. 如果您對使用 Server Core 還很生疏,管理 Server Core 伺服器可協助您熟悉這個環境。If you're new to working with Server Core, Manage a Server Core server will help you get used to this environment. 管理 Windows Server 2016 會告訴您從遠端管理伺服器的各種不同選項。Manage Windows Server 2016 shows you the various options for managing servers remotely.

每一次規劃 Windows Server 發行版本時,我們採用的最重要步驟就是傾聽客戶意見反應:您使用 Windows Server 的情況如何?One of the most important steps we take in planning each release of Windows Server is listening to customer feedback – how are you using Windows Server? 哪些功能會對您的 Windows Server 部署造成極大影響,甚至衝擊日常業務?What new features will have the greatest impact on your Windows Server deployments, and by extension, your day-to-day business? 您的意見反應讓我們知道盡快且盡可能有效率提供新創新是主要優先考量。Your feedback tells us that delivering new innovation as quickly and efficiently as possible is a key priority. 此時就那些以最快速度進行創新的客戶來看,我們得知他們主要使用 PowerShell 的命令列指令碼來管理資料中心,因此對含有桌面體驗的 Windows Server 安裝中提供的桌面 GUI 沒有強烈需求。At the same time, for those customers innovating most quickly, you’ve told us that you’re primarily using command line scripting with PowerShell to manage your datacenters, and as such don’t have a strong need for the desktop GUI available in the installation of Windows Server with Desktop Experience. 我們只要將重點放在 Server Core 安裝選項,就可以將更多資源投向這些新創新,同時還能維持傳統 Windows Server 平台功能及應用程式相容性。By focusing on the Server Core installation option, we’re able to dedicate more resources toward those new innovations, while also maintaining traditional Windows Server platform functionality and application compatibility. 如果您有關於這一點或其他有關 Windows Server 及未來發行版本之問題的意見反應,可以透過意見反應中樞提出建議和意見。If you have feedback about this or other issues concerning Windows Server and our future releases, you can make suggestions and comments through the Feedback Hub.
