Server Manager MMC stopped working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have DC running Server 2008 r2. It's been running fine, but when I recently tried to add Win Server Backup I discovered that I can't open the Server Manager. I spent all night researching and trying different suggestions found here and various site with no success.

    I've tried doing a clean boot no success. I can't boot to safe mode because the server is 200 miles away. I'm doing everything via LogMeIn. Because this is a PDC, reinstalling the OS would be my absolute last choice.

    This is the problem details

  • If I did an in-place upgrade, will it retain my AD configuration?

    No, but it's recommended you backup the server before running in-place upgrade.

  • Something just came to mind... if I had another computer that I can put Win Server 2008 R2 on, can I transfer the AD and all the roles of the DC it. Do a fresh install on the current server and transfer it back?
