How to install .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows Server 2012

Quick one on how to install .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows Server 2012. Its required for things liks PowerCli on 2012. It cant be installed natively like other roles/features. It needs the install source files. So the quickest way is to mount the 2012 iso to the VM and run the following from an elevated command prompt (assuming d:\ is the mounted iso)

dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /all /Source:d:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess
