When you install the Server OS, that is just the OS and the server itself doesn't really do any task yet. To perform the tasks you want the server to run, you need to add specific roles.

For example if you want the server to act as an Active Directory Domain Controller, you need to add the Active Directory Domain Services. Or if you need the server to act as a Web Server, you need to add the Web Server role.

So the roles are needed for the specific task the server is intended for. There are some important things to keep in mind. A server that is going to be an Active Directory server shouldn't have any other roles, except DNS and DHCP, installed. Or a Server running the Terminal Server role shouldn't also have the file-server role installed.
