In this blog post, I’ll show you how I Install IIS 10 Web Server on a Windows Server Container.
Installing IIS Server or any other rule on a Windows Container can only be done using PowerShell because GUI Interface and remote roots are not available to us on Containers.
Therefore, the need to know and perfect PowerShell Is essential and I can’t stress this point more.
to get started, I’ll create a windows container with windows server core 2016 using the docker command below:
docker run -it --name web01 microsoft/windowsservercore powershell.exe
In the container, I’ll use the cmdlet below to view all the IIS features available for Installation
To install IIS with the default components I’ll use the cmdlet below
Add-WindowsFeature web-server, web-webserver
Done, as you can see IIS was Installed successfully, the entire operation took less than 5 minutes.
