Hi,

Just type in ServerManager in powershell, that'll do it, or click win->run->(type) ServerManager->enter.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

This looks like you're on your workstation, not server. SKU 48 means Pro edition :)

If you want to operate powershell interactively on remote machine you should reconnect to it after restart:
enter-pssession -computername <yourserver>

Open in new window


It is possible to run ServerManager on workstation, but requires tools to be installed (RSAT - Remote Server Administration Toolkit)

i also tried to install using cmd:
To install Remote Server Administration Tools by using a command line

    Open a Command Prompt window with elevated user rights by right-clicking the Command Prompt executable, or the Command Prompt object on the Start menu, and then clicking Run as administrator.

    At the prompt, type the following, where command Id represents the identifier (found in the previous table) for the tools that you want to install, and then press ENTER.

    ServerManagerCmd.exe -install <command Id>

You wrote that you're connecting thru rdp, so get back to rdp, connect and then start powershell.

Daniel_PLDB Expert/ArchitectCommented:
It depends on UAC settings and what you want to do on that machine. For simplicity start as administrator. Open remote desktop (Win->Run->mstsc), connec to to desired machine, start powershell.

From results above it is clear that you're on your workstation not server, that's why ServerManager doesn't work.
In case you want to have this feature on a workstation you need to install RSAT.
First download them, next install, then turn windows features on/off from link you provided.
