Add FTP service (IIS7) to server core

You'll need the following roles added in this order

  • start /w ocsetup IIS-WebServerRole 
  • start /w ocsetup IIS-IIS6ManagementCompatibility
  • start /w ocsetup IIS-Metabase
  • start /w ocsetup IIS-FTPPublishingService 
  • start /w ocsetup IIS-FTPServer 

Then, to make the service start on boot, use the following (it does require a space after the = sign)

  • sc config MSFTPSVC start= auto 
  • net start MSFTPSVC
