You can use ServerManagerCMD command to install roles/feature and PsExec to do it on remote servers from text file.

is this Windows Server 2008 not 2008 R2, right (because "Removable Storage Manager" feature is removed in R2 :) )

so, for R1 use on a server

ServerManagerCMD -install Removable-Storage

using PsExec from one of your server or workstation with RSAT installed

psexec @text_file_with_servers ServerManagerCMD -install Removable-Storage

where "text_file_with_servers" is a text file with servers names, one per line

All Roleas and Feature to install you will find on this blog

You need to use Removable-Storage feature's name in OS language :)

in case of syntax problem you can also try with

psexec @text_file_with_servers ServerManagerCMD "-install Removable-Storage"

where "Removable-Storage" is in OS language
