Check the properties of the shortcut you're using to launch the console and make sure "/safe" is not on the end of the command.

Yes, I did attempt a console repair (unable to add new user) using the MS technet doc. I could not see that any repair had taken place. Not sure if a repair can be executed while the console is in Safe Mode.

The shortcut properties do not point to safe mode.

Any events in the event log under applications? Or have you tried right-clicking and run as administrator

The events recorded in the log (there are several) but they do not pertain to the console and the time stamps do not track the issue I am facing. How do I reset the console mode from "safe" to "standard"?

Unless you specify the /safe when launching the console, it will not be in safe mode. Have you checked your shortcut that you are using?

Not sure I can accept your position.

When opened the console indicates "Windows SBS 2011 Standard Console (Safe Mode)"
I did not create the short cut. The SC was created during server install. I am sure the console is operating in Safe Mode because none of the monitored parameters are available...

Have you edited the C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Bin\console.exe.config file? If so then make sure the SafeModeSettings is set to false.
 <SafeModeSettings safeMode="false">

Open in new window
