    The Discussion

      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.
