  1. Resume allowing unused features to be removed from Windows Server 2019

    Using the following PowerShell snipet to remove the binaries from unused roles and features worked great in Windows Server 2012-2016.

    Get-WindowsFeature | Where-Object {$PSItem.InstallState -eq "Available"} | Uninstall-WindowsFeature -Remove

    When used in conjunction with Features on Demand this results in smaller install footprints for VMs and VM templates. Doing so in Windows Server 2019 breaks future CU installs due to the new PSFX update engine (error code 0x800F0982 PSFX_E_MATCHING_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND is returned).

  3. Provide search option in 'Add Server Roles and Features' wizard

    When selecting server roles and (specially features that is a long list and nested), provide an option to search for them. it will help to quickly find required roles/features for installation/uninstallation.
