   I am running this DISM tool for http-tracing on IIS win 2k8 R2.
Dism.exe /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:IIS-HttpTracing..

Getting this error:-
 Info                  DISM   DISM Package Manager: PID=432 Routing the command... - CPackageManagerCLIHandler::ExecuteCmdLine
Info                  DISM   DISM Package Manager: PID=432 Encountered the option "featurename" with value "IIS-HttpTracing" - CPackageManagerCLIHandler::Private_GetPackagesFromCommandLine

I know there was some cleanup done in winsxs folder.  Can someone point to the right solution.

The fault is not with DISM. It cannot find the missing files in WinSXS.

Try running System File Checker from an admin command prompt to see if it might repair WinSXS.

If not, you may need to repair your server installation with the install DVD. I have not needed to do this myself.


After running SFC.EXE /scannow

Still getting the same DISM package manager error.
