Is there a command at the CLI or in PowerShell that will list the components installed for SQL? I'm looking for something like the Feature List you can get from running the discovery report from Tools in the SQL Server Installation Center program option.

I'm running SQL Server 2012 on the CORE version of Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. I've searched around the Net, but haven't found anything useful.


The components for SQL Server 2012 are divided by server and then management tools. You can get the server level components by using a PowerShell command like:

Get-Service *SQL*

To get the management tools would require either registry search for the uninstall list or you can query the WMI class win32_product:

get-wmiobject win32_product | 
where {$_.Name -match "SQL" -AND $_.vendor -eq "Microsoft Corporation"} | 
select name, version
