Windows Server remote server admin tools

I added the RSAT tools using the server manager module

PS> Get-Command -Module servermanager

CommandType     Name
-----------     ----
Alias           Add-WindowsFeature
Alias           Remove-WindowsFeature
Cmdlet          Get-WindowsFeature
Cmdlet          Install-WindowsFeature
Cmdlet          Uninstall-WindowsFeature

Notice the name changes Add/Remove are now aliases with the cmdlets as install/uninstall

Use

Install-WindowsFeature -Name RSAT -IncludeAllSubFeature –Restart

to force the restart.

PowerShell needs to be running as an elevated shell to add features

The server needs a reboot before the tools are available for use

These modules are added

ADDSDeployment
RemoteAccess
WebAdministration
DnsServer
ADRMSAdmin
DFSN
GroupPolicy
NFS
Hyper-V
DhcpServer
BitLocker
ActiveDirectory
NetworkLoadBalancingClusters

PS> Get-DnsServer -ComputerName server02 | select -ExpandProperty ServerZone

ZoneName                     ZoneType        IsAutoCreated   IsDsIntegrated  IsReverseLookupZone  IsSigned
--------                     --------        -------------   --------------  -------------------  --------
_msdcs.Manticore.org         Primary         False           True            False                False

TrustAnchors                 Primary         False           True            False                False

This working against my Win 2008 R2 DNS server – cool

And DHCP

Get-DhcpServerv4Scope -ComputerName server02

And Hyper-V

Get-VMHost -ComputerName server02

and AD

Get-ADDomainController

All of these work against my Win 2008 R2 domain

There is a mass to dig through here
