Config changes made to IIS on package server:

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH194716

On Windows 2008 R2 add the following Roles and add the Role Services to the defaults (accept all prompts for further required role services):

  • File Services
  • Web Server (IIS), add the following Role Services to the defaults,
    • ASP.NET
    • ASP
    • Windows Authentication
    • IIS 6 Management Compatibility and all sub options
  • Application Server
    • IIS Support

You should be able to script this as part of the OS install.

Give this powershell command a try for automation.

Import-Module Servermanager

Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework, NET-Framework-Core, NET-Win-CFAC, Web-Server, Web-Http-Redirect, Web-Asp-Net, Web-ASP, Web-ISAPI-Ext, Web-ISAPI-Filter, Web-Log-Libraries, Web-Basic-Auth, Web-Windows-Auth, Web-Digest-Auth, Web-Mgmt-Compat, Web-Http-Tracing, Web-Client-Auth, Web-Cert-Auth, Web-Url-Auth, Web-IP-Security, Web-Dyn-Compression, Web-Scripting-Tools, Web-Mgmt-Service, AS-Web-Support,SNMP-Services

I use this every SMP/Task Server I create.

After complete you can even throw some IIS tweaks at it.

%systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set apppool /apppool.name: DefaultAppPool /managedPipelineMode:Classic

%systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set app "Default Web Site/" /applicationPool:"Classic .NET AppPool"

%systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set app "Default Web Site/Altiris/ClientTaskServer" /applicationPool:"Classic .NET AppPool"

Thanks for sharing that, really useful.

Now all you need to do is script the 7.1 Sp2 MP1.1 Hotfix rollup task Server update in there :-)
