ServerManager crashes and servermanagercmd returns incomplete set of data on windows 2008 enterprise server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an domain controller which also has a few other working roles - (dns/dhcp/iis), when I open servermanager, it runs for up to a minute, looking for roles and features, then crashes.

    Running servermanagercmd -query returns

    servermanagercmd -query
    ....

    ----- Roles -----


    ----- Features -----

    [X] Windows Internal Database  [Windows-Internal-DB]
    [ ] WinRM IIS Extension

    .

     

    So far I have tried http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winservermanager/thread/ae1a7f09-2f50-4521-9bae-283631963283/#page:2

    and a few of the links from there - the DCOMConfiguration is correct,

     

    In servermanager.log - It starts off

    Then repeats the 'not found for current SKU'. for a  bit,

    then it has some things aren't installed because of dependencies, then it continues:

    From the log, it looks like it can tell the roles are installed, but it doesn't display them.  Also I can't add or remove a role.

     

    Any help?
