Powershell to Install RSAT Features in Windows Server 2012 R2

I am setting up a couple of 2012 R2 RDS servers in a small RDS farm (of 2..) and thought it a good opportunity to see what I could do with  powershell.

These RDS servers are for system administrators to manager the environment from. This saves them installing all this stuff on their PC

I tried an add-feature RSAT first, but all it did was install the RSAT tools for roles that were already installed on the server, what I actually wanted was ALL the RSAT tools, so that clusters DCs , ADCS, Bitlocker etc , could all be managed from the one location.

This script installs all the RSAT Features apart from RSAT-NIS, which is deprecated
