Hyper-V Server 2012, Can't install RD Connection Broker

I've set up a Hyper-V Server 2012 and am trying to setup Remote Services to test out publishing Remote Apps.
I got this to work with a full Server 2012 version, but whenever I try to install the Role it fails at the first step of installing the RD Connection Broker.  
I haven't seen anything saying you needed the full version to push out the Remote services or much on troubleshooting the non full 2012 server.

Also, any help on where to find the Role installation logs since it doesn't publish any events when it fails.

Thanks

Are you installing this on the host or a VM?  RDS 2012 requires the server being a member of a domain, it cannot be installed on a domain controller, and although not certain I am doubtful it can be installed on a hyper-V host.

It's installed on the host, which is joined to our domain, it's not running any AD processes.

It's the free Hyper-V Server install, with Hyper-V and Remote Desktop Services installed remotely through the Server Manager.  I installed the RDS, but can't install any of the brokers.

Is this perhaps only able to run as part of a farm installed on a full Server 2012 machine?

I would think there are limitations as well as security risks installing the role on a host.  Hyper-V is intended to be used as a host only with no services added.  Most Hyper-V hosts are not licensed to run any services, such with Hyper-v free or when using 1+ licensing.

Ok.

I had it up and running on trial version of 2012, and was looking to see if it was possible on the free Hyper-V only version as well.  Guess not.

Thank you for the help.

Definitely not on free.
Usually you buy something like server 2012 which gives you 2 server 2012 VMs and a hyoer-v host, but that host is only licensed to run Hyper-v.  The same applies to datacenter version
