Can someone please explain what the Location Drive setting is for? If I search for software when adding a new server, it adds properly and this field is greyed out when editing. If I add the service manually and try to edit it, this field shows as a required field and I cannot save the provider without filling this in.

Hello,
Do you have File Services installed on the same server?

Kind Regards,

Trevor Robinson

Hello,

I have tried to recreate this issue but have not been able to. Can you please try run the following powershell command and take a screenshot of the results:

Get-WmiObject Win32_ServerFeature | Where-Object { $_.Name -Like “file server resource manager” } | Select *

Thanks,

Trevor Robinson
