Retrieves information about all images on a server.


WDSUTIL /Get-AllImages [/Server:<Server name>] /Show:{Boot | Install | LegacyRis | All} [/Detailed]


Parameter Description

[/Server:<Server name>]

Specifies the name of the server. This can be either the NetBIOS name or the fully qualified domain name (FQDN). If no server name is specified, the local server will be used.

/Show: {Boot | Install | LegacyRis | All}

  • Boot returns only boot images.

  • Install returns install images as well as information about the image groups that contain them.

  • LegacyRis returns only Remote Installation Services (RIS) images.

  • All returns boot image information, install image information (including information about the image groups), and RIS image information.


Indicates that all image metadata from each image should be returned. If this option is not used, the default behavior is to return only the image name, description, and file name.


To view information about the images, type one of the following:

WDSUTIL /Get-AllImages /Show:Install
WDSUTIL /Verbose /Get-AllImages /Server:MyWDSServer /Show:All /Detailed
