Installing Windows Server Backup and Server Migration Tools using PowerShell

In most environments, you will need to be able to perform Windows Backups, therefore, you will want to ensure that you minimally install the Windows Server Backup Tools.  If you need to migrate any functionality from one server to another, the Windows Server Migration Tools are also handy for that.

Therefore, one of the easiest ways to do this is to automate this through PowerShell.

You can install both of these features using the following command:

Install-WindowsFeature Windows-Server-Backup,Migration

However, if you are interested in using DISM to install these features instead, you can do it using the following command:


DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:WindowsServerBackup /FeatureName:ServerMigration /All
