How to list Packages available when creating a Nano server


I have written numerous articles on Nano server, check them out.

Specifically in this article “IIS on Nano server” I include the Nano server “–Package Microsoft-NanoServer-IIS-Package” property while I was building my Nano server VHD.  However, I wanted to know or get a list of all the possible packages that can be used when creating the Nano server.  The following command is how I achieved it, also see the results in Figure 1.

Import-Module .\NanoServerImageGenerator -Verbose
Get-NanoServerPackage -MediaPath D:\

Figure 1, what package available for building a Nano server

And here is the list.

Microsoft-NanoServer-Compute-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-Containers-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-DCB-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-Defender-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-DNS-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-DSC-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-FailoverCluster-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-Guest-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-Host-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-IIS-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-OEM-Drivers-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-SCVMM-Compute-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-SCVMM-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-SecureStartup-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-ShieldVM-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-SoftwareInventoryLogging-Package
Microsoft-NanoServer-Storage-Package
I will probably build a Nano server that includes all of these and then run the dism /online /get-features command to learn more about what features are contained within each of the packages.
dism /online /get-features

Until later.
