2012 Core Install Results in Blank CLI Screen
Posted on 2014-04-11
I successfully created a Hyper-V server on a remote DR computer and used the 2012 Core install. I was able to successfully enter the product key, activate 2012, join the VM to the domain and promote it to a DC. The last step was to install all recommended Windows update which I launched prior to leaving for the day.
This morning when I arrived I did a RDC to the new server and logged on as the domain administrator. This was also successful but I am presented with a completely blank screen - no command window, absolutely nothing is displayed. This also occurs if I log on to the Hyper-V host server and perform a connect to the new server.
I am able to attach to the server via the Computer Management applet on my Windows 7 Pro workstation. The application event log shows error 1202, "Security policies were propagated with warning 0x534: No mapping between account names and security IDs was done.
This only occurs when I logon on using the domain administrator user account, the one I used to install and configure the VM as noted above. Using another user account that is a member of the domain administrator's group allows me to successfully logon and access the CMD window on the 2012 VM. The problem is isolated and I can still access the server using RDC as long as I use the secondary admin account. I would like to fix the issue with the primary administrator's account on the VM server.
