DSC Pull Server on Windows Server 2008 R2

Recently on the PowerShell.org forums, a community member mentioned that they were having trouble setting up a Server 2008 R2 machine as a DSC pull server. It turns out, this is possible, but you have to install all the prerequisites yourself, since the Add-WindowsFeature DSC-Service command doesn't do it for you on the older operating system.

Refer to this blog post for the checklist.
