Installing Windows Server 2008 Roles on a Core install


Just a quick post on how to install the various roles on a Windows Server 2008 core installation:

Installing the server roles:
  • start /w ocsetup DHCPServerCore
  • start /w ocsetup FRS-Infrastructure
  • start /w ocsetup DFSN-Server
  • start /w ocsetup DFSR-Infrastructure-ServerEdition
  • start /w ocsetup DNS-Server-Core-Role

Installing NFS Services:

  • start /w ocsetup ServerForNFS-Base and then start /w ocsetup ClientForNFS-Base

Installing Single Instance Storage:

  • start /w ocsetup SIS

Installing the Active Directory server role:
Active Directory has to be installed by using an Unattended Answer file. This is because it requires certain settings to be set up during the install.

  • Dcpromo /unattend:Unattendfile
