If you’re getting ready to install the System Center Operations Manager web console, there are several prerequisites that you need to install before you’re ready for it.
Luckily, if you’re comfortable with PowerShell this becomes SO easy, and ultimately repeatable.
Import-Module ServerManager Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework-Core,Web-Static-Content,Web-Default-Doc,WebDir-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
See how easy this is? Thirteen feature installations, plus the time spent starting the UI, fumbling through it, and double- and triple-checking to make sure you’ve gotten every feature that you need; all of that time spent adds up and even adds risk that you’ll make a mistake, forcing you to do the same thing again, find which feature was missed and starting the installation again.
Enjoy this fast little script the next time you have to install a SCOM Web Console. As you can see, it really speeds you up to install the SCOM web console prerequisites with PowerShell.
