Perform this task on the server that will be hosting the server role you want to install. For example, install the Provisioning server role on the server that you have designated as the Provisioning server.

From the CortexSetup directory on the installation media, type the following at a command prompt:

CortexSetupConsole.exe /install:items [/Help]

Comma-delimited list of Services Manager roles to install. Valid values are:
  • ConfigTool
    Note: The Configuration Tool is automatically installed when you specify any other server roles to install. You must specify it if you are not installing any other server roles with this command, but plan to later use a script to configure the system databases.
  • Provisioning
  • DirectoryWebService
  • Web
  • Reporting
  • ReportMailer
Displays command help.

After you install the server role, run the Configuration Tool to configure the server role. After the Provisioning, Directory Web Service, and Web server roles are installed and configured, you can configure the primary location. After configuring the primary location, you can install and configure the Reporting server role.


The following command installs the Provisioning Engine and Directory Web Service.
CortexSetupConsole.exe /install:Provisioning,DirectoryWebService
