Windows Server 2016 Standard with Essentials Role enabled.

I setup two Windows Server 2016 VMs, one of which has the Essentials Role enabled, and the other VM will be a database/file server.  I joined the second VM Windows Server 2016 Standard member server without using the http://servername/connect option, and the Essentials console does not show as a connected host to the AD Domain.  I joined the member server the regular way by using System\Advanced  System Settings\Computer Name Tab, Change Button\...

So it joined the domain without issue, and I am just wondering why it does not show up as a server within the Essentials console.  I've done this same thing on SBS2011/SBS2008 and I followed the same steps above and the server appears within the SBS Console.  

I just want to know if Essentials works the same way or not, or whether additional servers simply do no the display the Essential console.

Additional servers do not show up in the essentials console, nor does the connector install.
