Cannot Configure Essentials Role on new 2012 R2 Standard Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed 2012R2 Standard on a new HP Gen 8 server. This server was joined to an existing SBS 2008 domain using the native windows tools as I did not want to make it a Domain Controller - just a member server.

    I installed the Essentials Role successfully but when I try to configure it I get an error that says "Configuration Encountered some issues" and "Please click retry. If the issue still exists please refer to the help link for more troubleshooting steps."

    I am logged in with a Domain Administrator account that I also added as a local administrator to the new server so it should not be a rights issue.

    All upgrades have been applied and reboots at least 10 tens.

    Any ideas how to get past the configuration errors?
