  1. Server Manager did not work for me on a new Server 2016 image. Nor did the native Powershell applets. Ended up using DISM, e.g.
    dism /online /enable-feature /all /featurename:IIS-WebServer, etc. Used the DISM /get-features command to get the names for the features since the names displayed in Server Manager and Powershell were not the same as what DISM seemed to require.
