How you add Roles/Features in Server core

DHCP = DHCPServerCore
DNS = DNS-Server-Core-Role
File Server = File-Server-Core-Role
File Replication service = FRS-Infrastructure
Distributed File System service = DFSN-Server
Distributed File System Replication = DFSR-Infrastructure-ServerEdition
Network File System = ServerForNFS-Base
Media Server = MediaServer
But if its — Active Directory
Dcpromo /unattend:Unattendfile
