I am trying to install Terminal Services License Server on a 2008 Server Standard DC. The only roles installed on this machine are Active Directory and DNS.

I went thru the Wizard and selected to install TS License Server ONLY (no need to install Terminal Services on this DC) and it did the whole install process only to fail at the end.

This thread here http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverTS/thread/1cf16372-79b8-436c-acc0-1bd0b11ea37c indicates demoting, installing Term Svc LS worked, but I'd rather not do that.

The last bits of the log state:

edit: Per FarSeeker added the event log failures. There are a bunch, literally thousands of errors in the System log. Nothing looks particularly illuminating to me other than clearly something is incredibly broken. :D

First it starts with Event ID 4371 "Info" level events:

Windows Servicing started a process of changing package Windows Foundation(Foundation) state from Installed(Installed) to Installed(Installed) - Microsoft-Windows-Foundation-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.0.6001.18000

Windows Servicing started a process of changing package Server-Features(Feature Pack) state from Installed(Installed) to Installed(Installed) - Microsoft-Windows-Server-Features-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.0.6001.18000

Windows Servicing started a process of changing package BitLocker(Feature Pack) state from Installed(Installed) to Installed(Installed)

Windows Servicing started a process of changing package KB948465(Service Pack) state from Installed(Installed) to Installed(Installed) - Package_221_for_KB948465~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.0.1.1800

-- process continues for basically every service pack / update on the system, several hundred --

Then:

The start type of the Windows Modules Installer service was changed from demand start to auto start. 7040

Then a few dozen of these:

Windows Servicing is setting package KB955302(Update) state to Installed(Installed) 4372

Finally the magic:

The Terminal Services Licensing service entered the running state. 7036

The description for Event ID 18 from source Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-Licensing cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event:

XXXXXX (name of the server)

The description for Event ID 0 from source Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-Licensing cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event:

(blank)

Then all the Servicing items from before fail: Windows Servicing failed to complete the process of setting package Windows Foundation (Foundation) into Installed(Installed) Microsoft-Windows-Foundation-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.0.6001.18000 Operation: Installed OpCompleted: True ErrorCode: 0x80070bc9 state 4375

Windows Servicing failed to complete the process of setting package Server-Features (Feature Pack) into Installed(Installed) state

Finally, looking in the application log I have only a few (maybe 10 or so) failures, instead of the several thousand in the setup log:

This is a very generic MS Error Code. The relevant part of your log file is the first two lines.

Most of the time it would appear that this is caused by a service that the role relies on not being detected correctly, and requires a lot more information than what you've got there.

If you check in the Event Log, do you see a related failure in there? If you can find it, can you update your post with the failure(s) so that we can have a look?

Update:

Hmm, sorry, I'm all out of ideas. Those event codes are no help (Event 0 = started, Event 18 = TS Licensing Server Not Activated - both pretty normal).

ErrorCode: 0x80070bc9 doesn't have a specific generic meaning, although it commonly seems to mean "Restart Required from Previous Update". I'm guessing that's not its meaning in this situation though (I assume you've already restarted).

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, there's an awful lot of failures in the event log related to this –  Matt Rogish Sep 29 '09 at 13:08
    
Thanks for posting them. I've had a skim and I'll go through in more detail soon. –  Mark Henderson Sep 29 '09 at 21:01
    
I've updated my answer. Sorry I couldn't be more help :( –  Mark Henderson Sep 29 '09 at 21:22
    
Looks like I may have to contact MS Support. Thanks anyway!! :) –  Matt Rogish Sep 30 '09 at 19:22

I resolved the issue by adding the folder named "appPools" folder at location C:\inetpub\temp. I also have "Everyone" the permission to write during installation.
