Hi,

I'mt trying to install Remote Access (Direct Access) on a Windows 2012 server. The server are dedicated to this and there is no DC installed on it. It's a member of our domain.

The installation fails every time and tells me that the installation failed because the server requires a restart and when its up and running again, nothing have been installed. When I try to install it again, i gives me the same message.

See the message below:

Look in the registry and change the following

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
Rename the "PendingFileRenameOperations" value to "PendingFileRenameOperations2"

Hi mcsween,

There are no value called PendingFileRenameOperations in that library. I've also tried to search the whole registry and it couldn't find any.

When the server restarts and during the startup it says "Failure configuring Windows Update. Reverting changes" and then it's ready for login. It only says this after i've tried to install the Remote Access role.

The event id keeps coming up with these two errors every time i try to install the role.

Event ID 24:
Event provider RAServerPSProvider attempted to register query "select * from RemoteAccessError" whose target class "RemoteAccessError" in //./ROOT/Microsoft/Windows/RemoteAccess/Server namespace does not exist. The query will be ignored.

After a couple of hours I reinstalled the server again and now everything is working.

I had the same error and I also had this 7041 Event: "The MSSQL$MICROSOFT##WID service was unable to log on as NT SERVICE\MSSQL$MICROSOFT##WID with the currently configured password due to the following error:
Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer.". We are not currently allowing this account privelege through GPO at the default domain policy level. This article goes over how to add that account: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2832204#appliesto . I have not been able to test yet as our organization hasnt approved the security changes yet. This account looks important to federation, IPAM and Direct Access and is new to 2012 Server.
