ServerManagerCMD.exe to install IIS7


This is by far the quickest and easiest way to install IIS7 on Windows Server 2008, and even better – you do it via the command line!

To install IIS7 on a brand spanking new build of Windows Server 2008 simply do the following:

For a default install – that is the basic options to run IIS7:

ServerManagerCMD.exe -I Web-Server

For a full install – this is the works, includes bacon AND pineapple:

ServerManagerCMD.exe -I Web-Server -allsubfeatures

This will give you the install text like so:

And after about 1 minute – IIS is installed!
