cu1 error on update RSAT-Clustering-CmdInterface isnt Installed


  • I have a running version of exchange 2013 on a 2012 AD and when I went to update to CU1 yesterday I ran into the error : "The windows component RSAT-Clustering-CmdInterface isn't installed on this computer and needs to be installed..."

    Not read anyone else running into this issue.  Ive seen some posts about installing it, but want to make sure I'm doing the correct thing before making any changes.

    Anyone else seen this?  Is there a blog/post that can point me on how to correctly install the RSAT-Clustering CmdInterface?

    Thank you,

  • Hi,
    The Exchange 2013 Prerequisites do say that RSAT-Clustering-CmdInterface is one of the required components

    Haven't tried it with EX13, but I think you can install the components you are missing during the install.

    setup.exe /m:upgrade /InstallWindowsComponents /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms

  • I had the same problem for installation the Exchange CU1,

    Go to the server manager.

    Follow the steps:

    Manage > Add Roles and Features > Features

    Expand the three for RSAT Tools and Intall the Failover Cluster Command Line Interface.

  • Thanks for sharing Rennan!

    Since I did have a bit of trouble figuring out what you meant, some elaboration on this:

    1. Open Server Manager
    2. Once the contents have loaded, click on Add roles and features (number 2 on the dashboard)
    3. Click next two times in the "Add Roles and Features Wizard"
    4. When the Features node becomes available in the left panel, click on it
    5. Look for the item called "Remote Servver Administration Tools". It could very well be that these are already installed partly and therefore will it could be displayed as greyed out. Expand it nevertheless.
    6. Under that node, expand "Feature Administration Tools"
    7. Under that node, expland "Failover Clustering Tools"
    8. Here, make sure "Failover Cluster Command Interface" is checked
    9. Click next and then install to start the installation
