Overview of Server Manager Commands

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Server Manager in Windows Server® 2008 R2 offers a set of Windows PowerShell cmdlets for installing, removing, and querying roles, role services, and features, and a command-line tool, ServerManagerCmd.exe, to enable users to perform automated installations or removals of roles, role services, and features. Both command-line options enable users to view logs of their operations, and run queries to display lists of roles, role services, and features both installed and available for installation on a computer.

ServerManagerCmd.exe can be used with an XML answer file to speed up repetitive automated installations or removals of roles or features. For more information about the answer file that you can use with ServerManagerCmd.exe, see Creating an Answer File for Server Manager Commands.

noteNote
Servermanagercmd.exe is deprecated, and is not guaranteed to be supported in future releases of Windows. We recommend that you use the Windows PowerShell cmdlets that are available for Server Manager.

Server Manager command-line tools, dism, pkgmgr, and ocsetup

Server Manager command-line tools differ from other command-line tools, such as dism, pkgmgr and ocsetup, that are used to install and remove Windows software packages. We recommend that you use Windows PowerShell cmdlets for Server Manager or the ServerManagerCmd.exe command prompt utility for installing or removing roles, role services, and features on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2.

The following list includes ways in which the Server Manager cmdlet set and command prompt utility differ from dism, pkgmgr and ocsetup, and describes advantages of Server Manager command tools for administrators who want to deploy a server as efficiently as possible.

  • The Server Manager command line is consistent in function and terminology with the deployment and management capabilities of the Server Manager console in the Windows Server 2008 R2 UI.

  • The type of packages or files in which a role, role service, or feature are contained do not have to be known by users. The Server Manager command line requires only the name of the role, role service, or feature that the administrator wants to install or remove. Administrators do not have to provide any path or file names of role, role service, or feature packages.

  • Administrators do not have to specify dependencies between roles, role services, and features when they are using the Server Manager command line. The Server Manager command prompt utility automatically installs any other software packages that are required to use the role, role service, or feature specified in the command.

  • If problems occur with an installation or removal, error handling for ServerManagercmd.exe simplifies troubleshooting and provides clear actions to the user.

  • The -whatIf parameter of ServerManagercmd.exe lets users verify what actions their commands will perform before they initiate commands and change the system. There is no comparable command parameter included with dism, pkgmgr, and ocsetup.

  • The Get-WindowsFeature cmdlet and the -query parameter of ServerManagerCmd.exe give users complete views of which roles, role services, and features are available for installation on the computer, and which are currently installed. There is no comparable parameter included with dism, pkgmgr and ocsetup.

  • Both the input and output of the Server Manager command line is XML based. ServerManagercmd.exe accepts an XML answer file itemizing roles, role services, and features to be installed or removed. Both the results of installation and removal operations, and -query results can be exported to XML files. This enables automation scenarios in which other software can generate and interpret the XML files that are used with the Server Manager command prompt utility.

Windows PowerShell cmdlets for Server Manager

Windows PowerShell cmdlets for Server Manager accept parameters to install or remove one or more roles, role services, and features that are separated by commas.

The following three cmdlets let you install, remove, or view information about available roles by using Windows PowerShell. For more information about and examples of how to use any of these cmdlets, in a Windows PowerShell session into which the Server Manager module is loaded, enter Get-Helpcmdlet_name-full, in which cmdlet_name represents one of the following values.

  • Add-WindowsFeature   Installs specified roles, role services, and features on the computer. For more information about how to add roles, role services, and features by using this cmdlet, see Adding Server Roles and Features.

  • Get-WindowsFeature   Returns a list of all roles, role services, and features that are available for installation on the computer, and displays by using check boxes ([X]) those that are installed. The Get-WindowsFeature cmdlet also returns a list of the command names that you provide in the Add-WindowsFeature and Remove-WindowsFeature cmdlets when you want to add or remove roles, role services, and features. Results of the Get-WindowsFeature cmdlet can be piped into either of the other two Server Manager cmdlets, or into cmdlets that run scans for Best Practices Analyzer, for example.

  • Remove-WindowsFeature   Removes specified roles, role services, and features from the computer. For more information about how to remove roles, role services, and features by using this cmdlet, see Removing Server Roles and Features.

Advantages of Windows PowerShell cmdlets for Server Manager

Windows PowerShell cmdlets for Server Manager offer some significant advantages over the ServerManagerCmd.exe command.

  • After Windows PowerShell and the Server Manager cmdlet set are installed by using dism, Windows PowerShell cmdlets can be run on a computer that is running the Server Core installation option of Windows Server 2008 R2. Instructions for installing Windows PowerShell and the Server Manager cmdlet set on the Server Core installation option of Windows Server 2008 R2 are available in Remote Management with Server Manager.

  • Windows PowerShell tools and cmdlets are available for performing some management tasks after a role, role service, or feature is installed. For more information about roles, role services, and features that can be managed by using Windows PowerShell tools, see Windows PowerShell about_Modules (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=141216).

Requirements for using Server Manager cmdlets

To run any Server Manager-related Windows PowerShell cmdlets, you must be running Windows PowerShell with elevated user rights. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click Windows PowerShell, right-click the Windows PowerShell shortcut, and then click Run as administrator.

You must also load the Server Manager module into each new Windows PowerShell session before working with Server Manager cmdlets. To do this, in a Windows PowerShell session opened with elevated user rights, type Import-Module Servermanager, and then press Enter.

noteNote
For more information about how to start a Windows PowerShell session with all installed modules and snap-ins loaded automatically, see Starting Windows PowerShell with All Modules Loaded.

The ServerManagerCmd.exe command

The Server Manager command-line installation accepts parameters to install or remove one or more roles, role services, and features that are separated by spaces. When you want to install or remove more than one role, role service, or feature on a server by using a single command instance, you can also use an XML answer file, especially if you want to configure multiple servers identically. For more information about the answer file that you can use with ServerManagerCmd.exe, see Creating an Answer File for Server Manager Commands.

noteNote
ServerManagerCmd.exe can be run from any directory on the server's local drives. You must be a member of the Administrators group on the server on which you want to install or remove software.

ImportantImportant
Because of security restrictions imposed by User Account Control in Windows Server 2008 R2, you must run ServerManagerCmd.exe in a Command Prompt window opened with elevated permissions. To do this, right-click the Command Prompt executable, or the Command Prompt object on the Start menu, and then click Run as administrator.

Syntax of ServerManagerCmd.exe

ServerManagerCmd.exe -query [<query.xml>] [-logPath <log.txt>]

ServerManagerCmd.exe -inputPath <answer.xml> [-resultPath <result.xml> [-restart] | -whatIf] [-logPath <log.txt>]

ServerManagerCmd.exe -install <command-Id> [-setting <setting-name>=<setting value>]* [-allSubFeatures] [-resultPath <result.xml> [-restart] | -whatIf] [-logPath <log.txt>]

ServerManagerCmd.exe -remove <command-Id> [-resultPath <result.xml> [-restart] | -whatIf] [-logPath <log.txt>]

ServerManagerCmd.exe [-help | -?]

ServerManagerCmd.exe -version

Parameters

 

Parameter Description

-query [<query.xml>]

Displays a list of all roles, role services, and features installed and available for installation on the server. You can also use the short form of this parameter, -q.

If you want the query results saved to an XML file, specify an XML file to replace query.xml.

noteNote
The results of the -query parameter cannot be used as an answer file with the -inputPath parameter. The XML used by -query results and the XML required in a Servermanagercmd.exe answer file do not validate to the same schema.

-inputPath <answer.xml>

Installs or removes the roles, role services, and features specified in the answer file, an XML file represented by answer.xml. You can also use the short form of this parameter, -p.

For more information about how to create an answer file for use with this parameter, see Creating an Answer File for Server Manager Commands.

-install <Id>

Installs the role, role service, or feature specified by Id. See Role, role service, and feature command identifiers in this topic for a complete list of the role, role service, or feature identifiers from which you can choose to specify for Id. The identifiers are case-insensitive. Multiple roles, role services, and features must be separated by spaces.

The following optional parameters are used with the -install parameter.

  • -setting <setting name>=<setting value> – Specify required settings for the installation. See Role, role service, and feature command identifiers in this topic for a complete list of available settings.

  • -allSubFeatures – Specify the installation of all subordinate services and features together with the parent role, role service, or feature named in the Id parameter of the -install command. Be aware that some role containers do not have a command line identifier to allow installation of all role services. This is the case when role services cannot be installed in the same instance of the Server Manager command. For example, the Federation Service role service of Active Directory Federation Services and the Federation Service Proxy role service cannot be installed by using the same Server Manager command instance.

  • -resultPath <result.xml> – Saves installation results to an XML file represented by result.xml. You can also use the short form of this parameter, -r. You cannot use the -resultPath parameter and the -whatIf parameter in the same instance of ServerManagerCmd.exe.

  • -restart – Adding -restart to the -install command restarts the computer automatically when installation is complete, if restarting is required by the roles or features installed.

  • -whatIf – You can use -whatIf to display any operations specified for the -install command. You can also use the short form of the -whatIf parameter, -w. You cannot use the -resultPath parameter and the -whatIf parameter in the same instance of ServerManagerCmd.exe.

  • -logPath <log.txt> – Use -logPath to specify a name and location for the log file, other than the default, %windir%\temp\servermanager.log.

-remove <Id>

Removes the role, role service, or feature specified by Id. See Role, role service, and feature command identifiers in this topic for a complete list of the role, role service, and feature identifiers from which you can choose to specify for Id. The identifiers are case-insensitive. Multiple roles, role services, and features must be separated by spaces.

The following optional parameters are used with the -remove parameter.

  • -resultPath <result.xml> – Saves removal results to an XML file represented by result.xml. You can also use the short form of this parameter, -r. Be aware that you cannot use the -resultPath parameter and the -whatIf parameter in the same instance of ServerManagerCmd.exe.

  • -restart – Adding -restart to the -remove command restarts the computer automatically when removal is complete, if restarting is required by remaining roles or features.

  • -whatIf – You can use -whatIf to display any operations specified for the -remove command. You can also use the short form of the -whatIf parameter, -w. You cannot use the -resultPath parameter and the -whatIf parameter in the same instance of ServerManagerCmd.exe.

  • -logPath <log.txt> – Use -logPath to specify a name and location for the log file, other than the default, %windir%\temp\servermanager.log.

-help

Display Help for ServerManagerCmd.exe in the Command Prompt window. You can also use the short form, -?.

-version

Display the Server Manager version number. You can also use the short form, -v.

Remarks about ServerManagerCmd.exe

ServerManagerCmd.exe does not support configuration or management of roles and features, after those are installed. Role and feature installations completed by using ServerManagerCmd.exe use default settings. To change role or feature settings, perform role administration tasks, or view status or events for roles and features, you should use the Windows GUI–based Server Manager console. You might have to open other management snap-ins for your role, or use role- and feature-specific command-line tools for managing or configuring specific roles, role services, and features.

noteNote
Although role and feature installations are secure by default, you should use the Server Manager console to change any default settings to comply with security policies in your enterprise. ServerManagerCmd.exe cannot be used to install and configure applications other than Windows Server 2008 R2 roles, role services, and features. ServerManagerCmd.exe is not supported on computers that are running a Server Core installation of Windows Server 2008 R2. ServerManagerCmd.exe cannot be used for installation or removal of roles, role services, and features on remote computers.

ServerManagerCmd.exe Examples

The following are examples of how Server Manager commands are used.

Querying the installed roles and features on the computer

The following example shows the ServerManagerCmd.exe syntax for performing a query to determine which roles, role services, and features are installed on a computer, and which are available for installation. In this example, the administrator directs Server Manager to save the results of the query to a file, C:\queryResults.xml.

ServerManagerCmd.exe -query C:\queryResults.xml

Installing a role without an answer file

The following shows the ServerManagerCmd.exe syntax for installing Web Server (IIS) and all its role services. The administrator exports the results of the installation to an XML file that is named WebServer.xml. The administrator has also instructed Server Manager to restart the computer automatically when installation is complete, if it is required by the role.

ServerManagerCmd.exe -install Web-Server -allSubFeatures -resultPath C:\Admin\WebServer.xml -restart

Removing features by using an answer file and the ServerManagerCmd.exe command

An administrator is using the following command to repurpose several servers by removing some roles. Commands for the roles to be removed are provided in an answer file that is named RemoveFilePrint.xml. The administrator has added the -whatIf option to the command to display the command operations specified in the removalresults.xml answer file, and show if any software that depends on the items specified for removal in the answer file was also removed.

ServerManagerCmd.exe -inputPath C:\AdminFiles\RemoveFilePrint.xml -resultPath C:\AdminFiles\removalresults.xml -whatIf
