I've recently installed Server 2012 and I need to activate it. I've never had a problem with this before. It's not specific to Server 2012 but any new OS installation on my network
I get the following error:
Error: 0x80041015 Transport failure (SWbemObjectEx)

I've read several solutions on the web but most i can't understand what they are saying. can someone spell it out for me in clear steps.
