How to install IIS features on SCCM 2012 Distribution Point with command line

Hi SysAdmins

Did you ever wonder how SCCM 2012 install a DP remotely from the CM console?

DISM.exe (Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool) is a command line tool that you can use to enable or disable Windows features.

In this case we use it to install all the necessary IIS features for a SCCM 2012 DP.

Command line to install IIS on DPs:

[label type=”label” style=”default” title=”Code:”]

dism.exe /online /norestart /enable-feature /ignorecheck /featurename:”IIS-WebServerRole” /featurename:”IIS-WebServer” /featurename:”IIS-CommonHttpFeatures” /featurename:”IIS-StaticContent” /featurename:”IIS-DefaultDocument” /featurename:”IIS-DirectoryBrowsing” /featurename:”IIS-HttpErrors” /featurename:”IIS-HttpRedirect” /featurename:”IIS-WebServerManagementTools” /featurename:”IIS-IIS6ManagementCompatibility”  /featurename:”IIS-Metabase” /featurename:”IIS-WindowsAuthentication”  /featurename:”IIS-WMICompatibility”  /featurename:”IIS-ISAPIExtensions” /featurename:”IIS-ManagementScriptingTools” /featurename:”MSRDC-Infrastructure”

If you prefer using Powershell, use the following cmdlets instead:

[label type=”label” style=”default” title=”Code:”]

Import-Module servermanager

Add-WindowsFeature  “IIS-WebServerRole”, “IIS-WebServer” ,”IIS-CommonHttpFeatures” ,”IIS-StaticContent” ,”IIS-DefaultDocument” ,”IIS-DirectoryBrowsing” ,”IIS-HttpErrors” ,”IIS-HttpRedirect” ,”IIS-WebServerManagementTools” ,”IIS-IIS6ManagementCompatibility”  ,”IIS-Metabase” ,”IIS-WindowsAuthentication”  ,”IIS-WMICompatibility”  ,”IIS-ISAPIExtensions” ,”IIS-ManagementScriptingTools” ,”MSRDC-Infrastructure”

Both of the above methods work from the command line or Powershell console window. It is preferred to save and run the code as a batch or .ps1 script.

I hope this has been helpful for you.

  1. In Server 2012, the command line does not work unless you remove the quotation marks around each featurename.
