I'm installing the Active Directory Domain Services Role on a new Server 2008 R2 VM and the service is disabled upon completion of the installation. Additionally, the service will not start if I change the state from disabled to automatic.  I'm trying to prepare a Server for a Lync Standard installation.   Is this behavior normal with AD after installing the Role?
