More comical 1809 failures!

I’m evaluating Windows Server 2016 on a machine on the LAN. I want to use RSAT. I read this document…

When I do what it says in 1809, “Manage Optional Features” tells me that there are no features available.

Again… What did they do to this thing to screw it up so bad?!

    <p>I wish you could talk personally to Satya Nadella, but it seems he is living in a very cosy bubble where he doesn't have to deal with this crap. My guess is that he uses a Mac.</p>
