There are command line tools for all of those individual features but Microsoft included a useful command called sconfig that allows you to quickly configure basic server settings.

· Configure local administrator accounts.
· Configure Remove Management settings.
· Enable Automatic Windows Update.
· Manually install Windows Updates.
