Recently trying to install VDA on a server 2016 server and it comes up with the below error trying to install Remote Desktop Session Host

Error Id: XDMI:334CF235

Citrix.MetaInstaller.MetaInstallerException ‘dism’ component failed to install with error 0x800f080c.
at Citrix.MetaInstaller.Prerequisite.RdsComponents.Install(InstallationContext context)

at Citrix.MetaInstaller.InstallationManager.InstallComponent(InstallableComponent component, InstallationContext installContext)


Looking in the logs it’s failing when running this :

dism /quiet /norestart /english /online /enable-feature /featurename:Remote-Desktop-Services /featurename:ServerMediaFoundation /featurename:AppServer /featurename:InkAndHandwritingServices /featurename:DesktopExperience

When I run this manually I get  : 

Feature name DesktopExperience is unknown. 
Feature name InkAndHandwritingServices is unknown.

This is actually already bundled in 2016 , you will need to install VDA 7.11 ( the minimum version that supports Server 2016 )
