Trying to load Scaleout Console on windows 2012 server core and will get the following error after the console loads...

Please Advise,

The SOSS Console relies on Windows GUI components that are not available on Server Core editions of Windows. The ScaleOut StateServer service will need to be managed using the soss.exe command line utility, which offers the same functionality as the Console. Also, the soss_params.txt file, which stores all the settings for the service, can be edited directly.

Once your initial installation and configuration is complete, the ScaleOut StateServer service can be managed remotely from a workstation with ScaleOut's Remote Client components installed if you'd like to continue using the Console from a remote system that's running a full-blown installation of Windows.
