Add support for Windows server Core

Good morning, it would be great to be able to run Domino using Windows Server Core edition (Windows Server OS without Desktop Experience). It has a much smaller memory and storage footprint, a smaller attack surface and potentially better uptime and higher performance compared to a bloated Windows Server with a GUI.

Thank you and best regards

    Actually the system requirements don't explicitly state it is not supported.
    It's the default installation option, when you install Win2022.

    But from what I understand it is not officially supported.
    I asked around recently and some customers are using it today.

    Windows Core server works well for me and it is still easy to handle without the full UI.

    From green energy and security point of view, I really would like Windows Core server support.
