    Server Core - Firewall

    By default the Operational Model of the firewall on a server core machine is
    set to enabled, should be disabled when promoting the Server Core to a DC?

    Are there any firewall changes that need to be done on a Server core machine
    to get the box to communicate on a production network?

    You don't need to disable the firewall when promoting. The promotion will
    create the necessary exclusions in the firewall to allow communications for
    AD and file shares.

    After installing server core, I only hade to make three firewall changes.
    Remote Desktop, remote firewall, and remote administration.
