How to: Import Export (Setup) Windows Server 2012 configuration windows features   4 comments

If you want to build quick servers and add features to it and you don’t use #SCVMM then the export import is maybe the thing you can use.

Below is a sample on how to use this.

So we created the groups and we are adding the Failover cluster Roles to the nodes just right click and add roles and the wizard pops up choose the failover cluster tools do this for both nodes.

clip_image020 clip_image022

 

Did you also see the little export line ? in the Roles installation field save it for later.

image it looks like this.

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<Objs xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/powershell/2004/04" Version="1.1.0.1"><Obj RefId="0"><TN RefId="0"><T>System.Collections.ObjectModel.Collection`1[[System.Management.Automation.PSObject, System.Management.Automation, Version=3.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35]]</T><T>System.Object</T></TN><LST><Obj RefId="1"><TN RefId="1"><T>Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root/Microsoft/Windows/ServerManager/ServerComponent_NET_Framework_Features</T><T>Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root/Microsoft/Windows/ServerManager/MSFT_ServerManagerServerComponentDescriptor</T><T>Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ServerComponent_NET_Framework_Features</T><T>Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#MSFT_ServerManagerServerComponentDescriptor</T><T>Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance</T><T>System.Object</T></TN><ToString>ServerComponent_NET_Framework_Features</ToString><Props><Nil N="PSComputerName"/></Props>

 

So if you want to reuse / import this file on a fresh new server it can.

Import Configuration settings in windows 2012  based on exported Configuration settings in windows 2012

Go to powershell

install-WindowsFeature –configurationfilepath \\server\configfiles\savedconfig.xml

And your done

 

Happy Building.
