    Server Core

    What is the benefit of having Powershell v2 on my 2008R2 server core domain
    controller. From an AD perspective how does this help me?

    #2. I've not tested this, but you will likely get access to the Active
    Directory module so you can use PowerShell to administer AD locally.

    You can also perform general management on the server core machine by
    remoting into it with PowerShell

    How secured is it to include Powershell v2.0 in the default server build.
    Are there any issues that need to be aware off?

    As far as I'm concerned, it is very secure by default. If you decide to
    enable remoting, then you have opened up a HTTP and HTTPS port (TCP ports
    5985 and 5986 respectively, if I remember correctly).
