WDSUTIL [Options] /Get-Server [/Server:<Server name>] /Show:{Config | Images | 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:{Config | Images | All}

Specifies the type of information to return.

  • Config returns configuration information.

  • Images returns information about image groups, boot images, and install images.
