[Windows Server 2012] Add role fails

When trying to add a role (eg ActiveDirectory) to a Windows Server 2012 machine, I found that it would try to enable the components, but it would always fail in the end saying that the machine needed a reboot. It doesn't matter how many reboots you do, it will still fail.

The reason was that these services had to be enabled before trying to add the new role:

  • Server
  • Workstation
  • Computer Browser
  • TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper
