A Small Windows Server 2012 Issue

This issue is by no means business critical or threatening to bring down a Hyper-V Cluster or the like.

However, someone somewhere in Quality Control seems to have missed the boat on selecting items in the Roles & Features wizard:


Note how there is a Check Mark that seemingly indicates the full Role feature set has been installed.

Yet, when we click into that option we get:


It seems to us that since there are features within that Role that have not been installed the top level indicator should be the same as the one beside File and iSCSI Services (Installed) no?

This may be a minor thing, but most certainly indicators should indicate the correct status.

We don’t have a Windows Server 2012 R2 version up and running right now so can’t compare the two. Hopefully this little oversight has been fixed in the soon to be released product.
