    Hi Dave,

    Are you using DNS in your environment? If yes can you please make sure that IPv6 is fully disabled. I seen issues when services try to bing to IPv6 address and fail to start. You can test by pinging FQDN and making sure that it resolves to correct IPv4 address not ::1.

    Hope this helps.

    thanks for the try guys – I was successful with 2012. i think it was the ipv6 stuff but anyways. All good on 2012

    Thanks for letting us know Dave that your issue is resolved.
