I upgrade a Server 2003 R2 Standard to Longhorn Server Beta 3 Standard. Everything went well execpt now that I would like to add roles or features to the server the installation fails every time with a same error. The following is an example from when I tried installing SUA. Are my options a clean reinstall or is there something else I could do.

It looks like you have some data already, it would also be interesting to see the ServerManager.log file found in the %temp% directory of the user that performed the installations. Besides the section of the log that contains the error, another interesting part will be labeled by GetUpdateInfo, data about the update SUA will be the important part of that. Feel free to share what you find.
