WDS Server Core RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to setup Windows Deployment Service in Server core.

    So I did:

    install-windowsfeature -name WDS -includemanagementtools -includeallsubfeatures

    everything seems fine.

    wdsutil.exe /verbose /progress /initialize-server /standalone /authorize /reminst:"D:\WDS"


    An error occurred while trying to execute the command.

    Error Code: 0xc104013B

    Error Description: The Windows Deployment Services management tools are not configured.

  • Hello,

    Now I've a clear view. It was a test inside a vm. I really wanted to get rid of the GUI.

    WDS is the only role holding me back.

    The documentation is like a maze. You've got one information here, one there.

    and get-windowsfeature -name WDS > Windows Deployment Services WDS Installed

    And wdsutil /? gives answers. So I thought It was working. My bad.

    Beside I did my homework and searched the documentation.

    I learnt something that's a good think.
