NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade rsat -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade rsat -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

Description

Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) enables IT administrators to remotely manage roles and features in versions of Windows Server since 2008 R2 from a computer that is running Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista.

Notes

  • RSAT will install only on Professional or Enterprise (or LTSB/LTSC) editions of Windows. You cannot install RSAT on computers that are running Home or Standard editions of Windows.
  • For Windows Vista and Windows 7, the individual tools for the roles and features must be enabled after you install RSAT.
  • This package will install the latest version of RSAT for the running Windows OS unless it is Windows 10 AND the Server package parameter is used as follows:

    choco install rsat -params '"/Server:2016"'

Windows 10 RSAT version recommendations:
  • use the latest (default) when managing Windows Server, version 1803 or 1709 (Both 1803 and 1709 are available if needed.)
  • use 2016 when managing Windows Server 2016 or previous versions

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
