if you use a comma after the feature name you can both install and uninstall both features at same time. example:
dns,net-framework-features

Install-WindowsFeature -Name DNS -IncludeAllSubFeature -IncludeAllManagementTools 

The test grades me for the DNS feature and Uninstall of features, It will not let me pass with 100 since it wants me to submit for adding .netfrmwrk 3.5. Just now I did the quiz while following the video, and the video does not show .netfrmwrk 3.5 installed either.

Video could use an update by including the abovementioned command that includes the “-source” argument/parameter. Thank you for your help!

The lab instructions say to install the .NET 3.5 Feature but I did not see anything about that in the video and when I clicked on score it shows as not installed.
Also, I did everything as listed in the video in regards to uninstalling those roles and features and after clicking on score it said I had not uninstalled those roles and features.
It did say that I had successfully installed the server role.

Update: I was able to complete everything in the lab except installing the .NET 3.5 Feature. I rewatched the video and still can’t find out about that part and can’t complete that part of the lab.

Hi profile avatar Brady Durham

To install it you can try with:

Install-WindowsFeature Net-Framework-Core -source D:\sources\sxs

We have updated the lesson transcript to include the command.

Thank you,

Ricardo

Hello Ricardo, thanks for the update. I was successful in installing the .Net 3.5 feature but was unable to uninstall it. You’ll probably want to update that part with the syntax as well.
I tried using Uninstall-WindowsFeature Net-Framework-Core -source D:\sources\sxs
With the update you can do everything in the lab except to uninstall the .Net 3.5 feature.

Net Framework core has been removed for the command list of feature. The new one is NET Framework Features, having problems intalling it.

Hi profile avatar carlise jenkins

Thanks for the heads-up on the command list of feature updates. If you are doing it in the IT Lab from the Course, then you should be able to use the commands from the lessons.

Ricardo, were you ever able to update the lab on uninstalling the NET 3.5 feature on Server Core?
That’s the only thing I have left to complete. I was able to do everything in the lab but uninstall the NET 3.5 feature and I just wanted to follow up.

Thanks for the head up I almost forget.

You can use the command following command: Uninstall-WindowsFeature -Name Net-Framework-Core

We will update the lesson notes.

Hi profile avatar Umesh Prajapati

The Connection issue can show up if there’s not enough bandwidth from the client browser to the data center lab virtual machine or if there’s a network restriction. Check the following link for connectivity requirements:

The server will not allow me to Uninstall the features. I’ve tried several times and even had the server completely reboot on its own.

Hi profile avatar matthew cutshall

Which commands are you using to Uninstall the features, and which ones?

Typically to remove a feature from PowerShell you use Uninstall-WindowsFeature with -Name and the name of the feature to remove. To get the name of the feature we use Get-WindowsFeature.

Thank you

No matter what I do its not working. It allowed me to do it once with DNS then it stopped working, then it passed me without even completing the task.

It might have needed a reboot after uninstalling DNS since it is required to completely remove the role.
The commands are the following:

Get-WindowsFeature
Install-WindowsFeature DNS -IncludeAllSubFeature -IncludeManagementTools
Install-WindowsFeature Net-Framework-Core -source D:\sources\sxs
Uninstall-WindowsFeature DNS -IncludeManagementTools
Restart-Computer
Uninstall-WindowsFeature Net-Framework-Core

I see the lab is completed. I checked the lab, and the weight of the tasks was not balanced. The last task was having a weight of 20 and that’s why it passed you with 80. I have corrected it.

I’ve also completed the windows server lab several times and its not showing completed. There’s a glitch somewhere.

Right, I have seen the Desktop lab is not completed. I have marked that completed for you. It should be working when clicking the Complete & Continue button.
