I am setting up a windows 2012 file server and I want to use the SMR Share-advanced feature.  But, when I try to use it I see at the bottom of the wizard page

"The selected profile is not available because there are no servers being managed that have File Server Resource Manager installed. " 

I have looked around and it seems that I have all the file services roles installed.
Suggestions?

For some reason that option was not showing up till I rebooted a couple of times.  The server did not say it needed a reboot, but I saw it mentioned some where.  Once I rebooted it that install option came up.

Thanks
