Commands to install the necessary prerequisites for OCS 2007 R2 on Windows Server 2008

Front End on Windows Server 2008
Servermanagercmd.exe -install web-windows-auth web-mgmt-compat web-mgmt-console web-http-logging msmq-server msmq-directory powershell was-process-model was-config-apis rsat-addc

Installs the following components:

  • [Web-Windows-Auth] – Windows Authentication
  • [Web-Mgmt-Compat] – IIS 6 Management Compatibility
  • [MSMQ-Server] – Message Queuing Server
  • [MSMQ-Directory] – Directory Service Integration
  • [RSAT-ADDC] – Active Directory Domain Controller Tools
  • [WAS-Process-Model] – Process Model
  • [WAS-Config-APIs] – Configuration APIs
  • [Web-Mgmt-Console] – IIS Management Console
  • [Web-Http-Logging] – HTTP Logging
  • [PowerShell] – Windows PowerShell

The last 3 in the list are not required, but they are highly recommended. IIS 7.0 Management Console is IMHO much easier to use than the IIS 6.0 version. The logging tools often come in handy when troubleshooting OCS IIS issues and PowerShell makes working with OCS WMI values a piece of cake.
