  • Hi Samual,

    I would love to digg into your problem.

    At what point do you get this error and what server version do you run, Windows 2008 R2?

    Thank you,

  • Dear LutzMH,

    Thanks for showing interest in this problem.

    I got the error on the "Installation Results Page" of ADRMS Server Role Installation Wizard-- i.e. the Results Page that is usually displayed at the end of installing any server role.

    Regarding the server version, I run Windows Server 2008.

    Kind regards,

    OLUWA Samuel Ayodeji.
