Windows Server 2016 Essentials Help

6 posts in this topic

Anyone have experience with windows server 2012 / 2016

I am trying to remove the AD CS so i can remove domain controller

I can go to the server roles section to try and remove the adcs but the boxes that are checked, they are greyed out.

Yes this would tell me that my user account does not have enough permissions to do this, Yet when I go into Active Directory Users and Computers

select my name, and choose add to group, I added myself to Enterprise Admins and Domain Admins, and I can confirm I am a member of these groups, I sign out and back into my account, and try to uninstall, and still unable to uninstall.

You could run a cmd prompt as administrator (probably can do with PS) and try uninstalling via command line.

To query the roles and services installed;

ServerManagerCmd.exe -query

To remove a single role or service;

ServerManagerCmd.exe -remove <name of role or service>

Restart server if needed. You can use a switch at the end to manually restart;

ServerManagerCmd.exe -remove <name of role or service> -restart

Thanks for replying. I had to restart the box and run some updates. Then I was able to remove and demote.

Is any Windows Server 2016 recommended for an Arma 3 server?

its very similar to windows server 2012, just has the windows 10 style to it.

can't recommend essentials, pretty bad perfomance, especially the win10 gui is just taking unncessary loads of perfomance
