A colleague earlier in the week asked if there was a way of finding out what roles/features Windows 2008 has installed, without walking through the GUI.
After a bit of searching I came across just such a command line tool.
It’s quite useful for an Enterprise Vault person to need to know this, as, if the Enterprise Vault Server deployment is going to consist of a number of Windows 2008 servers a text based list is much easier to check to make sure that all of the servers are configured consistently, than a bunch of screenshots. Also for Support staff, rather than passing around screenshots a text list is much easier.
The tool is called DISM.
Here is a command line I ran with sample output :
Dism /online /get-features /format:table
