Hi Guys

I'm starting with powershell and I was wondering what would be the best way to export windows server configuration and features to xml so in a case of server failure all configuration can be imported
Thanks for help

That would be pretty magical ;). No, there's no native way to export _everything_ of a server's configuration. There are third parties, like Script Rock, who produce that kind of tool.

Microsoft's approach is to use DSC to declaratively state what the server configuration should be. That statement can then be applied to a server to implement that configuration.
