Setting up a 2016 Server Standard and Hyper V

I have a Lenovo System x x3250 M6 3633K3U 1U Rack-mountable Server - 1 x Intel Xeon E3-1230 v5 Quad-core (4 Core) 3.40 GHz 16GB of Ram and 3 2TB Hard Drives in a Raid 1 with Hotspare.

This is a new install running in Server core mode and i installed all updates, changed Hostname, and set a static ip. When i run the following command in powershell i get an error. i checked the event logs but dont see any errors. Not sure if there is a different log to check.

PS C:\Users\administrator> Install-WindowsFeature -name Hyper-V -IncludeManagementTools -Restart
Install-WindowsFeature : The request to add or remove features on the specified server failed.

If you ate running core, you can't include management tools.that's an easy error to spot. You are trying to include things that require a GUI.

you must be using S2K16 Standard or DataCenter.  Which version of Server 2016 are you using?
