I'm trying to set up a RADIUS server in Windows 2008 R2 following the guide Install Windows 2008 R2 NPS for RADIUS Authentication for Cisco Router Logins.

What I can't do is to register the RADIUS server to the Active Directory service which is located on the same server (see screenshot). I've tried to do this as both domain administrator and local administrator.

How can I fix this problem?

You can also register NPS servers in AD using ADUC and adding computer account of the NPS server to the Members tab of RAS and IAS Servers Security Group.

See more ways to register the NPS Server in AD DS ( here ).
