How do I install and enable RSAT tools on remote Windows 7 Workstations using Powershell? Actually this process I think has 2 parts:

  1. Installing the tools
  2. Enabling the features;

How can this be done remotely on windows 7 workstations via powershell? The environment consists only of Windows 2003 R2 domain controllers.

Why do you want to do this with Powershell? Why don't you just do it the normal way? Such tools shouldn't be put on so many machines that a manual install is an issue. –  John Gardeniers Feb 2 '13 at 4:57

It is a multi-step process. You have to install the hotfix using WUSA.exe then you can use DISM to enable the individual features.
