    Is there a function in WMI that will allow me to install the Hyper-V role without going through the Server Manager or servermanagercmd?

    I know Win32_ServerFeature lets you query installed roles.

    Unfortunately, no.  The role must be installed via the Add Role wizard or via the command line.
