I'm trying to install the NPS role on Windows Server 2016 (Datacenter) but neither Server Manager nor Install-Windows feature seem to be aware of its existence:

enter image description here

PS > Install-WindowsFeature NPAS -IncludeManagementTools
Install-WindowsFeature : ArgumentNotValid: The role, role service, or feature name is not valid: 'NPAS'. The name was
not found.
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (NPAS:String) [Install-WindowsFeature], Exception
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NameDoesNotExist,Microsoft.Windows.ServerManager.Commands.AddWindowsFeatureCommand

Success Restart Needed Exit Code      Feature Result
------- -------------- ---------      --------------
False   No             InvalidArgs    {}

There are a number of other roles that are missing like Fax Server and Windows Deployment Services.

Is there something else that needs to be done to install it (and the other missing roles)?

UPDATE: The output of Get-WindowsFeature

PS > Get-Windowsfeature -computername domain | where {$_.Installed -eq $false}

  • What roles are you looking to implement? It appears a lot of the old features connected to NPS are depreciated in Server 2016. "Network Access Protection (NAP), Health Registration Authority (HRA), and Host Credential Authorization Protocol (HCAP) were deprecated in Windows Server 2012 R2, and are not available in Windows Server 2016. If you have a NAP deployment using operating systems earlier than Windows Server 2016, you cannot migrate your NAP deployment to Windows Server 2016." docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/networking/technologies/… – Davidw Sep 1 '17 at 4:54
  • I want to use the NPS as a RADIUS server for VPN and 802.1X authentication – digitalPhonix Sep 1 '17 at 5:01
  • What do you get if you run Get-Windowsfeature -computername domain | where {$_.Installed -eq $false} ? – Davidw Sep 1 '17 at 5:40
  • What version of Server 2016 are you using (besides datacenter)? All recent updates installed? I had a similar problem some time back with server 2012R2 (I think). After installing all updates in went away. – Lenniey Sep 1 '17 at 8:26
  • @digitalPhonix You're also missing the Fax Server role. Can you confirm you are using an unmodified image? – Persistent13 Sep 1 '17 at 21:21

This role is not available in Windows Server Core. You must reinstall your server and choose the Desktop Experience version during the setup.

    I don't see anywhere in the screenshot where it suggests that the machine is running Server Core. – Davidw Sep 1 '17 at 5:28
  • In fact, there are a number of roles listed in the screenshot that are not available on Server Core. – Davidw Sep 1 '17 at 5:43
  • This was the problem! – digitalPhonix Sep 3 '17 at 2:40
  • @Davidw what roles are there that shouldn't be? – digitalPhonix Sep 3 '17 at 2:41
