How do I install new Windows Server 2003 R2 features?

A. The Windows 2003 R2 installation doesn't install the new features (with the exception of Microsoft Management Console--MMC--3.0) Instead, the R2 installation process updates the Add/Remove Windows Components Control Panel applet with all the new features and, to a lesser extent, updates the Manage/Configure Your Server Wizard with the new SharePoint role (and updated file and print server roles). Perform the following steps to install the new Quota Management feature:

  1. Start the Add or Remove Programs Control Panel applet (Start, Settings, Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs).
  2. Click the "Add/Remove Windows Components" button.
  3. You'll see several new Windows Components options, including:
       - Active Directory Services, which contains the Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM), Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) and Identity Management for UNIX
       - Distributed File System, including the DFS Management snap-in to manage the R2 DFS implementation, the DFS diagnostic and configuration tools, and the actual DFS replication service
       - Management and Monitoring Tools, including File Server Resource Management, Hardware Management, Print Management Component and Storage Manager for SANs
       - Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0
       - Other Network File and Print Services, including Common Log File System (CLFS), Microsoft Services for NFS, and Print Services for Macintosh
       - Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications
       - Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) Services
       - Windows SharePoint Services

    For now, just enable the new Quota Management component, which you'll do by selecting "Management and Monitoring Tools" and clicking Details.
  4. Select "File Server Resource Manager" as the figureshows and click OK.
  5. Click Next on the Windows Components screen, which will initiate the file copying and configuration of selected components.
  6. After the process is complete, click Finish. If you installed the File Server Resource Manager (FSRM), you'll be prompted to reboot the computer. This is because the FSRM places drivers at the file system level, which can be activated only at computer startup. Click Yes to restart.
