Server Manager Roles and Features greyed out. RRS feed

  • Question

  • One of my server (2008 R2 64bit) has Roles and Features greyed out in the Server Manager.

    I've found this KB https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2461206#/en-us/kb/2461206/ explaining how to remediate.  My questions is that the System Update Readiness tool available for download which is for Server 2008 R2 SP1, work on my server which is 2008 R2 but not SP1?  Or do I have to apply SP1 before running the tool?

    Thanks in advance,

  • You can download and run the latest tool (regardless of SP) for your OS here.
