Server Manager crashes after renaming Windows 2008 server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am running a Windows 2008R2 server and I had to rename it. After starting with the new name I tried to add a component using Server Manager, but the Server Manager displays the previous name in the title bar and crashes. (MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might not have been installed correctly. Name: Server Manager. CLSID: FX:{18ea3f92-d6aa-41d9-a205-2023400c8fbb})

    The command line tool "Servermanagercmd" crashes with an exception:

    Unhandled Exception: System.MissingMethodException: Method not found: 'Int32 Microsoft.Windows.ServerManager.NativeMethods.LogServerManagerEventOneArg(ServerManagerEventId, System.String)'.
       at Microsoft.Windows.ServerManager.ServerManagerCmd.Application.Main(String[] args)

    When I call the Power Shell cmdlet get-WindowsFeature then the Power Shell Windows closes immediately (crash?).

    Any ideas what to check are very welcome. Thanks in advance,

  • Hi Isaac,

    I've rebooted the server several times since renaming and to be really sure, I restarted the server 5 minutes ago but the behavior is still the same.

    Chances are that certain system components are corrupt or missing, I’d run In-place upgrade to repair install Windows if the above suggestions don't work.
