Server 2012 R2 Essentials


Recommended Posts

As stated in the OP, this is possible iff the Essentials server is a role in a Datacenter or Standard 2012R2 server. You can't deploy Server 2012 RW Essentials stand alone into an existing domain. At least, not in the Preview version.




Installing Windows Server Essentials as a role in Windows Server 2012 R2 Preview has the following limitations:

  • Can only be deployed into a single domain environment.
  • A read-only domain controller cannot exist in your environment.
  • The Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials Preview edition cannot join to an existing domain.

I think the issue with joining 2012E into an existing Domain, is the Essentials wants to be the first if not the only DC in the domain.
