Stuck on "Determining Deployment State" RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hello All,

    I have installed numerous OCS servers but this is the first time I am encountering this problem.  After I select "Deploy other roles" in the deployment wizard, the "Determining Deployment State" remains on the screen. Normally this step takes maybe a few minutes, but I have let in run for a half an hour. I do not see any errors being generated. 

     

    Not sure what I can do other than wipe server clean and start from scratch.

     

    There did exist a mediation server on the box that was never activated.  That server was removed through Add/Remove program wizard.  I also check the registry just in case there was something remaining under software:Microsoft:. 

     

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

     

    Thanks -

    Jo

  • Guess I needed to wait longer. It took 40 minutes to finish that step!

  • Even a few minutes is unusually long - typically it takes < 20 seconds unless your environment is particularly complicated. Do you have a slow link to your DC?
