* Windows 2008 : Features & Roles

After the default installation of Windows 2008, most of the features are locked down. As per the requirements, features needs to be enabled.

Windows 2008 provides two ways of enabling functionality on the server. Features & Roles. Both of them are somewhat dependent on each other.

Here are screen shots of available features and roles.

A top list of features. e.g. .NET enable it only if you require. Desktop experience for Vista style UX.


Roles have a broader scope and may require enabling multiple features to enable a particular role. So Web Server and App Server are different roles. Roles functionality was somewhat present in Windows 2003 also.
