PS C:\> Get-WindowsFeature -ComputerName "Server1" -Credential "contoso.com\user1"

This command gets a list of features that are available and installed on the target computer named Server1. The credentials for user user1 in the Contoso.com domain, a user who has Administrator rights on Server1, are provided.

Example 2: Get a list of features that is available and installed on the specified offline VHD

PS C:\> Get-WindowsFeature -Vhd "D:\ps-test\vhd1.vhd"

This command gets a list of features that is available and installed on the specified offline VHD located at D:\ps-test\vhd1.vhd.

Example 3: Get a list of available and installed features by command ID

PS C:\> Get-WindowsFeature -Name "AD*, Web*"

This command gets a list of available and installed features that have a command ID starting with AD or Web.

Example 4: Get a list of features that is installed on a specific server

PS C:\> Get-WindowsFeature -ComputerName "Server01" | Where Installed

This command gets a list of features that is installed on the server named Server01.

Example 5: Get a list of features on a server that have installation files that are removed

PS C:\> Get-WindowsFeature -ComputerName "Server01" | Where InstallState -Eq Removed

This command gets a list of features on the server named Server01 that have installation files removed from the local side-by-side store, and require an external file source for installation.

PARAMETERS

-ComputerName

Specifies a list of available rrsandf_plural from the specified remote computer that is running Windows Server 2012 R2. The parameter accepts only one computer name. If this parameter is not added, or no computer name is specified, the default target is the local computer. Valid values for the parameter include a NetBIOS name, an IP address, or a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of a remote computer.

To use a remote computer's IP address as the value of this parameter, your command must include the Credential parameter. The computer must either be configured for HTTPS transport, or the IP address of the remote computer must be included in the WinRM TrustedHosts list on the local computer. For information about adding a computer name to the WinRM TrustedHosts list, see How to Add a Computer to the Trusted Host List in about_Remote_Troubleshooting.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Cn

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Credential

Specifies a user account that has access rights to perform this action. If the parameter is not added, or no value is specified, the default value of this parameter is the current user. Enter a user name in one of the following formats. Quotation marks are optional.

-- "UserName" -- "Domain\User" -- "User@Domain.com" -- A Credential object returned by the Get-Credential cmdlet.

If a user name is entered, then a prompt for a password is displayed.

Accept wildcard characters: False

-Vhd

Specifies the path to an offline virtual hard drive (VHD). The path can either point to a VHD file, or to a location on which the VHD is already mounted by using Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tools.

The VHD can be on a local disk on the target computer, or on a network shared folder. If the VHD is in a network shared folder, then the value of this parameter is a UNC path to the VHD. In this case, the computer account of the computer that you are using to mount the VHD must have read and write permissions (Read/Write permissions in the File Sharing dialog box, or Full Control on the Security tab of the folder Properties dialog box) on the shared folder, or the VHD will not be accessible. Local loopback UNC paths are not supported. Use either of the following formats for the computer account: DOMAIN\SERVERNAME$ or SERVERNAME$.

Add the ComputerName parameter to specify the target computer you want to use to mount the VHD. If the ComputerName parameter is not specified, then the local computer is used. The computer that you are using to mount the VHD must be running Windows Server 2012 R2. Any local path, such as D:\myFolder, that is specified by using this parameter is always relative to the target computer.
