Install RSAT on Windows 10 1809

Recently updated to Windows 10, version 1809, removed the Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) that were previously installed.  This is common with such updates, however, this time around I was unable to reinstall the tools.  After much digging, I discovered that this is because Microsoft has made the RSAT tools a part of the “Features on Demand” in Windows 10.

Features on Demand (FODs) are Windows feature packages that can be added at any time.–capabilities

To install RSAT on Windows 10 version 1809, open an elevated Command or PowerShell and run the following DISM command:
