After installing Active Roles, the following error is seen when attempting to launch the Active Roles MMC:
When importing from another Active Roles database, the following error is also observed:
Check the Active Roles database on the SQL server and verify that data is present in the tables folder, including the dbo.settings table. There should be roughly 55 dbo objects total.
If these tables are not present, verify permissions and that there are no restrictions on the SQL server preventing the Active Roles installer from properly building the database.
One example of possible restrictions could be STIGs configurations, which are known to interfere with the database creation process in Active Roles.
