SCCM Package – Remote System Admin Tools

I’m making a series of posts describing the package creation process for the applications in my current lab image. This post is about Microsoft’s Remote System Administration Tools.


General Info

RSAT is all wrapped up for you nicely as a msu (Microsoft Installer) file. The trick is enabling the tools with dism.


  1. Download the latest RSAT msu from the website above.
  2. Copy the RSAT installation file to C:\temp\rsat.
  3. Create a batch file named “Install-rsat.cmd” with the following contents:
    ECHO Installing RSAT for Windows 7 SP1 (x64) and enabling AD DS Snap-In
    ECHO Do not close this window. It will close when the install is finished.
    REM Main Install
    Windows6.1-KB958830-x64-RefreshPkg.msu /quiet
    REM Enable Tools
    IF EXIST %WINDIR%\system32\dism.exe SET DISM=%WINDIR%\system32\dism.exe
    IF EXIST %WINDIR%\SysNative\dism.exe SET DISM=%WINDIR%\SysNative\dism.exe
    %DISM% /online /enable-feature /featurename:RemoteServerAdministrationTools /featurename:RemoteServerAdministrationTools-Roles /featurename:RemoteServerAdministrationTools-Roles-AD /featurename:RemoteServerAdministrationTools-Roles-AD-DS /featurename:RemoteServerAdministrationTools-Roles-AD-DS-SnapIns
  4. Assemble the files into a single source folder then create a SCCM package and program. The program’s command line action should be “install-rsat.cmd”. The following is a screen shot of my final source folder:
