Windows Server 2012 – Add Role Error 0x800f0902

KB ID 0001120 


I was setting up a print server yesterday, when I tried to add the print server role it failed with this error;

Role Install Error

Unable to obtain feature list error 0x800f0902


Internet searching was pointing to a problem with the ‘Task Scheduler Service’ and suggested stopping that, which I was unable to do. It turns out my server had just finished Windows updates, and needed to reboot, (it was a new deployment). Post reboot it was fine.
