dylanratcliffe/winoptionalfeature — version 0.0.6 May 8th 2014


This puppet module creates a new defined type 'winoptionalfeature'. This can be called within any class to install/remove windows features from a non Windows Server OS based on their ID string ex: 'Web-Server' or a comma seperated list of feature IDs ex: 'Telnet-Client,Telnet-Server'

The functionality is simply a wrapper to the powershell cmdlets 'Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature' and 'Disable-WindowsOptionalFeature'.
