      I got a list of features installed on a server, which i get by running

      (Get-WindowsFeature | where installed).Name

      But i can’t say what feature is optional or not. My question is can i treat optional Features as WindowsFeatures in the DSC config?

      I think Nope, they are not same and there is another DSC resource to handle optional features – WindowsOptionalFeature
