Windows 2008 R2 - Server Manager only showing Disk manager RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys!

    We have a standard Windows 2008 R2 installation of a Domain Controller.

    When I click the Server Manager, a window opens up saying Server manager but it actually just shows the Disk Manager showing the different partitions,etc.

    No way to add roles or features anywhere.

    How can I fix this?

    Regards,
    Teo

  • Up in the toolbar, click the Show/Hide Console Tree button.  This will show the Tree on the left hand side and let you see the Roles, Features, etc.
