I need the Web Server (IIS) role with the follow server role services:  According to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj656654.aspx#BKMK_RBF_WebConsole

  • Static Content
  • Default Document
  • Directory Browsing
  • HTTP Errors
  • HTTP Logging
  • Request Monitor
  • Request Filtering
  • Static Content Compression
  • Web Server (IIS) Support
  • IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility
  • Windows Authentication

I could go to Server Manager and add the individual roles and features, but I am running Server 2012 so lets make it super simple with PowerShell.

1. Launch the PowerShell command prompt


2. Run this command

Import-Module ServerManager

3. Run this command

Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework-Core,AS-HTTP-Activation,Web-Static-Content,Web-Default-Doc,Web-Dir-Browsing,Web-Http-Errors,Web-Http-Logging,Web-Request-Monitor,Web-Filtering,Web-Stat-Compression,AS-Web-Support,Web-Metabase,Web-Asp-Net,Web-Windows-Auth –restart

4. Press Enter


I then see


And that’s it!  Its much easier than installing on Server 2008 R2..
