Windows Server 2012 Essentials Error: DHCP Failed To Install 0x800F0922
Posted by Reprinted Article on 31 August 2013 07:00 PM

We are running a greenfield Windows Server 2012 Essentials with Exchange on-premises setup this weekend.

After setting the server’s IP to static we ran the DHCP Role install and hit:

image

Feature Installation

The request to add or remove features on the specified server failed.

Installation of one or more roles, role services, or features failed. Error: 0x800F0922

This particular setup is being done in our shop. So, we are using one of our own Cisco units to provide gateway services.

In the end it turned out that when we configured the Cisco ISA520 for the network’s subnet we had left DHCP on!

So, when that error happens make sure there are no DHCP services running on the network. Once we turned the Cisco DHCP service off we were able to install the DHCP Role, Authorize it, and set up our scope.

Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack – Crash Dump Analyzer
Posted by Reprinted Article on 29 August 2013 03:11 PM

This is probably one of the best tools, next to Lock Smith, in the Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset:

image

We are in the process of analyzing a bunch of MiniDump files from a system we just swapped an Asus motherboard in.

image

After each analysis it has become quite apparent that perhaps there is a bad memory stick in the system. ;)

Since our clients are on Desktop Operating System Software Assurance with the MDOP add-on for their systems we have access to this tool. It is a lot simpler to set up and get going than any other method out there.

Besides the DaRT one also receives some key virtualization rights for desktop operating systems! Software Assurance + MDOP for desktop OS is worth checking out.

Exchange Error: Edit E-mail Address Policy – Address List Service Cannot Be Found
Posted by Reprinted Article on 27 August 2013 08:01 AM

We were attempting to update the E-mail Address Policy (EAP) on an Exchange server and hit this error:

image

Edit E-mail Address Policy

The wizard could not complete.

Error:

An Exchange 2007 server on which an address list service is active cannot be found.

This particular SBS 2008 with Exchange 2007 was being tweaked as it is a restore into our lab cluster setup.

A quick search pointed to the Exchange System Attendant service not being online and sure enough it was not.

After starting the server we had a successful EAP change:

We could then move on to our next tasks at hand for this project.

Domain Join Error: Cannot Complete This Function
Posted by Reprinted Article on 26 August 2013 11:53 PM

In our newly recovered SBS 2008 environment we have not restored our client's Windows Server 2012 DC.

When attempting to join a freshly installed Windows 7 VM via http://connect we hit the following error:

13-08-26 BIO-Recovery - 02 Cannot complete this function ERROR

Connect Computer Error Details

ERROR: Connecting to the network

Cannot complete this function

Now, we then went and tried to join the VM manually and this is what we hit:

image

Computer Name/Domain Changes

The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "domain.local":

Cannot complete this function.

After verifying that DHCP was only handing out the recovered SBS as the only DNS server we went on to clean out DSSite.msc of the secondary DC and then on to DNS to clean up domain.local and _msdcs.domain.local.

Once we cleaned out the references to the now absent DC we had a successful domain join.

Moral of the story: If a now defunct DC still exists in Active Directory Sites and Services and/or DNS then clean-up including metadata clean-up (KB216498) may be required.
