  • Shared Configuration icon not showed up

    Nov 27, 2019 05:02 PM|asaputra026|LINK

    I installed iis 8 on a windows server 2012 core, i connected using iis manager from another server using GUI.

    I need to setup iis shared configuration between two nodes on a windows failover cluster.
    I was able to enable shared configuration normally on the first server (full install) but the problem is, the IIS shared config icon is not present on the core server. Under management section, I can only see "Configuration editor", "Feature Delegation", "IIS manager permissions", "IIS manager users"
    I'm connecting the the server using domain admin account... please advise how do i setup the IIS configuration server under this circumstance

    PS: i am not really expert at IIS & server core setting so a detailed advice will be very much appreciated

    Certain icons won't appear if you use IIS Manager on another machine to remotely manage.

    Switch to the equivalent PowerShell scripts or appcmd commands.

    Hi lextm, thanks for the answer
    Do you know the equivalent powershell command to enable iis shared config on windows server 2012 core?
    I tried look it up on the internet and all i found is command for win server 2016 (Enable-IisSharedConfig) which apparently is not accepted on my server.... i have import module webadministration and it seems such command is not available in there too

    Please advise :(

    Hi asaputra026,

    Have you installed IIS management tool? If you didn't install that, IISadministration will not work.

    Besides, have you tried this 

    Install-Module –Name IISAdministration.
