Hi everyone,

I realise that this isn't supported yet, but I'm wondering if anyone else encountered this issue and has a solution.

I've installed and licensed ArcGIS Server 10.1 on a Windows 8 Release Candidate virtual machine. I then opened up ArcGIS Server Manager and attempted to configure a new site. After I get to the Configuration Summary screen and click Next, I get the following error:

Failed to create the site. Failed to configure the server machine 'WIN8RELCAN.LOCALDOMAIN'. Server machine 'WIN8RELCAN.LOCALDOMAIN' is not a local server machine.

Any ideas?
