Install IIS with PowerShell

Here is another PowerShell command. This one is for installing IIS.

First I establish a session with the server I want to install to:

PS> enter-pssession -computername winbuildserver1

Next we just need to run a simple command:

winbuildserver1: PS> Install-WindowsFeature Web-Server -IncludeManagementTools -IncludeAllSubFeature -Source E:\sources\sxs

In the example I am installing the IIS web server, including the management tools and all sub-features, and I am installing from a specific source path, easy-peasy.

Of course you can achieve more fine grained control of the install and you can get more information on that at:
