windows 2016 server

Hi,

I have a Windows 2016 server; I want to install a virtual machine.
Question:
1)      In the server manager, I did not see “the hyper v manager”; how to enable it?
2)      What roles and features which I have to add in the server manager?
3)      What is the latest update (what version) for the windows 2016 server? (Note: for Windows 10, I know the latest update is version 1709)

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Add the Role.
2)      What roles and features which I have to add in the server manager?
Hyper-V Role is the only required role.
3)      What is the latest update (what version) for the windows 2016 server? (Note: for Windows 10, I know the latest update is version 1709)
See this link for how Microsoft is updating Windows Server.  I don't know what edition/licensing channel you bought, so read it and you should be able to figure it out.
