Can I reinstall Server Manager on Server 2012 R2?

For some reason the Server manager on one of my servers. the All fields in server properties all display unknown. So I can't do any NIC teaming unless i use PowerShell.

I suggest you try DISM to repair the system functions.  See if that works.

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator.
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Scanhealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
Restart the computer and test.

Please let us know

If DISM did not work, you have two avenues of approach:

1. Call Microsoft Server Support and engage them. They may be able to reinstall Server Manager with tools and techniques they have that we do not.

2. Back up all the information very carefully and reinstall the Server operating system.
