Installing Identity Management for UNIX components using command line

Server Manager command line tools allow you to install or remove roles, role services, or features in a Windows Command Prompt. Identity Management for UNIX can be installed by using the Server Manager command line because it is a role service of the AD DS role.

To install Identity Management for UNIX components using the command line, perform the following steps:

  1. Open a Command Prompt window with elevated user rights. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
  2. Select one of the following options:
    1. To install all the "Identity Management for UNIX" components, type:
      C:\> ServerManagerCmd.exe -install ADDS-Identity-Management -restart
    2. To install "Server for NIS" only, type:
      C:\> ServerManagerCmd.exe - install ADDS-NIS -restart
    3. To install just the "Password Synchronization" roles, type:
      C:\> ServerManagerCmd.exe - install ADDS-Password-Sync -restart

NOTE: A restart of the computer is required when you install Identity Management for UNIX. The -restart parameter restarts the computer automatically after installation is finished.
