Backing up new Server 2008 Core – missing wbadmin

Whilst I was playing with this server, I was interested in having a baseline image of my server as I played with the new features. However everything I read said that I could use WBADMIN to run a backup. I typed it from the command line and it wasn’t there!

So whilst doing some searching about IIS I came across the solution. I saw this post about Role Management Tool.

So I ran

ocsetup WindowsServerBackup

Once the Component setup has installed it you can now use WBADMIN

wbadmin start systemstatebackup –backuptarget:e
