Windows 2008 R2 HPC editon ADWS failed to install RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    when I do a dcpromo.exe on the Windows 2008 R2 HPC, I always haev the same error :

    Failed to enable Active Directory Web Services. The error was:

    the specified service does not exist as an installed service.

    As far I know the ADWS is installing itself while doing the dcpromo.exe

    I used the msdn version and try with the trial version and same issue.

  • I am getting the exact same message; just before the reboot.


    Any idea what's going on? I'm installing on an Hyper-v VM.

  • It looks like one of the task that takes place when setting up the Head Node is IT (the process) installs DHCP so I installed AD/DNS and will let the installer take care of DHCP. I'll let you know that happens.

  • I fixed the problem when I added a second nic.
