We are starting to update and upgrade our server environment and the first thing I did was build a server running Server 2012. This is going to eventually take over as our "primary dc". The install went fine, but now I'm having problems with the Best Practices Analyzer on all of the roles that I have added to the server. The biggest error that I seem to be getting is Online - Cannot get event data. In the details I see another error that says "Events from 'ADAM.Events.xml' could not be enumerated."

The roles that I have added are AD DS, AD LDS, DNS, File and Storage Services, and IIS. I'm getting the same errors on the Local Server and All Servers roles also.

I know that there could possibly be an issue with permissions from this machine to the other domain controllers, but it seems that everything has replicated correctly and the permissions seem correct. I've been struggling with these errors for a week and haven't gotten any further. Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated.

Did you run the active directory Lightweight directory services Wizard?


Plus I was looking at this link

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/13444.windows-server-2012-server-manager-troubleshooting-guide-part-ii-troubleshoot-manageability-status-errors-in-server-manager.aspx

It was stating, "Server Manager cannot get event data from the target server. The user might not have access rights to the target server event log, or event log files might not contain valid data.  For some roles and features (Hyper-V, Print and Document Services, AD LDS), this error can occur after installation, but before required post-installation configuration has been completed. The error is resolved after post-installation configuration is complete. For AD FS, this error can occur if web agents are the only role services installed, but there is currently no known resolution for this case of the error."

Do you even need to have AD LDS installed ??  It is not needed for normal AD operations.

Honestly, I probably don't need AD LDS installed. Server 2012 is new to me, so I just went through and installed the things that I thought might be necessary.

I have read that there is some kind of wizard, but I thought I had already ran through all of them. However, I'm not really sure where to launch the wizard from so I can't verify that.

If I don't need AD LDS, I'll just uninstall it and see if the errors clear up.

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

You almost certainly do not need it.

I have the underlying issue. For some reason the Default Domain GPO was disabled. Once it was enabled, everything turned green and things seem to be working great! Still fighting with DNS, but that is completely different issue.

Trial and error plus some input from Carlo led me in the right direction.
