You might not even notice until you need it, but when you install the RSAT tools on Win 10 for 1709, the DNS manager console is missing. That’s exactly what happened to me. I needed to add some records in DNS and oops, where is it?

Well, there is a KB article on it, so there is a fix. :¬)

  1. Check if KB 2693643 is installed, if so uninstall it
  2. Create a temporary directory to put stuff in it
  3. Create a “installx64.bat” file with the following content: [assuming you run a 64 bit Windows]

    4. Create a “unattend_x64.xml” file with the following content:

    5. Download the RSAT tools and put the msu file in the same folder

    6. Start a command prompt with administrative permissions and run the “installx64.bat”

    Once completed, you should have your full set (including DNS) of RSAT tools back
