It seems to me that feature System-Insights is missing from the "free" Hyper-V server. Are there any ways to sideload the feature? I have access to OEM / Retail media as well which do include this, however I'd be happiest with some possible "most official" fixes - like built in PS commands rather than messing inside registry. Image downloaded yesterday from Eval Center and
This seems directly related to: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/storage-migration-service/known-issues#stora...
MS suggest using this original media as a workaround and not activating it, however I'm in doubt how is this a fix if someone intends to use Essentials or Hyper-V edition.
Any suggestions where to look for?

You could try the mentioned PowerShell.
Add-WindowsFeature System-Insights -IncludeManagementTools

Have you tried running this cmdlet on Hyper-V edition of Windows Server? I can't get this to work. It seems to me most of critical management features are not there in Hyper-V edition, including - to my surprise, DSC - let alone System Insights.

Likely is unsupported but try working through this one.

@Dave Patrick Thanks for the link
I have been building some tooling for Windows Server management and to my surprise Hyper-V edition is seriously lacking compared to full version in terms of manageability. Windows 10 is far more manageable than this fellow ;) . What's worse, it seems completely undocumented as well. I have been trying to run DSC scripts for this - no avail - core DLLs are missing. Same goes with System Insights and select other features. Do you know if Windows Server Product Team has some sort of "feature comparision" between Hyper-V edition and standard one, in terms of usable roles and features? Or is there a hidden documentation somewhere?
