Role installation fails Server2008

Posted on 2014-04-12

I have production server running 2008 R2 Enterprise. Whenever I try to install the roles for RDWeb it erros out and says the server must be rebooted in order to undo changes. The kicker is when I access the site https://servername/rdweb everything is working properly. Of course when I reboot the rdweb site is gone. Is there any way to do the installation and then tell Windows dont undo changes. Is there a flag that can be ticked somewhere?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

My suggestion would be to fix the RDWeb error.  You don't what that all components of RDWeb work and that it will be stable.  What is the error message that you receive during installation?

Attached is the ServerManager.log file, the part where it shows the install failed.
