A: Windows Server 2012 Server Manager allows management of multiple servers concurrently. However, for remote roles and feature installation, only a single server can be specified. To install roles and features to multiple servers concurrently, use this Windows PowerShell cmdlet:

Install-WindowsFeature cmdlet

and call using this cmdlet:

Invoke-Command

passing the list of computers. For example, using the commands in this manner

<code>PS C:\> $cred = Get-Credential<strong>
</strong>PS C:\> Invoke-Command -ComputerName savdalbfs08, savdalscs01 -Credential $cred -scriptblock {Install-WindowsFeature desktop-experience -Restart -WhatIf}</code>

results in the following output (note that I have used -whatif, which means nothing will actually happen):<strong></strong>
