I have a server with windows server 2012 essentials installed, this the DC of the company.
I've tried various ways to create the user accounts using the dashboard of the server2012 essentials, when i try create the user account it gives me the following error/messaging:
"Please restart the Add a user account wizard and try again". The user appear in the ADUC (active directory Users and Computers) but i can't login using the user and the credentials created for that.
After read some posts, forums helping that, I read that there is necessary some security groups, speccially the WSSusers, and few with RA_Dashboard etc... If i create the user in ADUC ahd if his member of the security group work very well, but if i create the user in ADUC they don't appear in the dashboard, for that i have to import via powershell.
I only can create users (in dashboard) if the allow virtual private network(VPN) and allow Remote Web access and access to web service applications isn't active; if i create an admin user, using dashboard it gives an error, but after restart the dashboard it appears.

Other issue, related with this, i can't change the users that are created in dashboard, if i want to permit the allow virtual private network(vpn) or the other option it gives the error:
"Cannot retrieve or change the user account information..."

Can anybody help me solving this issues.
This is the first time i work with this version.


Best Regards.
