  • Help adding AD DS role Server 2012 R2 please !

    I cant run the AD DS role addition in either the GUI or PS without it failing with 0x800f0831

    The error is the same using either Power Shell or the GUI.
    This is the screen shot from the Power Shell attempt
    Windows PowerShell

    It seems update related. The server is running no other software or services. It is fully patched apart from the optional November rollup
    I have run the DISM check health and also restore health no errors found.

    Thanks Tony

    Try disabling UAC and then installing the role.
