IPAM provisioning failed

After installing the IP Address Management (IPAM) Server feature on Windows Server 2012 R2, at the end of the wizard to provision IPAM, you might receive the error: “Provisioning IPAM has failed. Check inner exception for more details. Some or all identity references could not be translated.”.

ipam-provisioning-failed_001

When looking in the event log (Applications and Services Logs > Microsoft > Windows > IPAM > Admin), you see a similar error.

ipam-provisioning-failed_002

This error is not clear at all since it does not give any details. But you might want to check if you are not installing IPAM on a Domain Controller, as this is not a supported scenario.

Microsoft could do a better job here and at least produce a warning at the moment when you are installing this feature on a Domain Controller.
