Active Directory Domain Service Role’s Install Error 0x80010108

Hi everyone

If you hit an install error 0x80010108 when you try to add the Active Directory Domain Service’s role to your server, then please make sure your account is correctly delegated the corrects right to add a new domain controller. It’s a simple right issue.

I kindly asked for a unfiltered account to do the task, and it worked like a charm 🙂




Windows Server 2016 RDS’s setting for Licensing

Hi everyone

If you make a RDS install for a simple server. I found today a small tip to simply add the Remote Desktop Session Host’s role and set the licensing mode correctly; (As the console don’t seem to be there by default)

Open gpedits.msc, and go there:

Computer Configuration\ Administrative Templates\ Windows Components\ Remote Desktop Services\ Remote Desktop Session Host\ Licensing

And set those two options;

Use the specified Remote Desktop license servers Enabled, and enter the licensing server.

Set the Remote Desktop licensing mode Enabled, and select user or device.

After you can hit a refresh in your RD Licencing Diagnostic MMC, and the status should be good !
