Failed join site and failed to generate certificate 10.2.2

Trying to add a new machine to an existing site.
Error message is:
Failed to join the site 'http://[IP]:6080/arcgis/admin'. Failed to generate certificate '{0}'

Even though it says it fails, if I check the main machine it shows it listed but not running.
If I click start to run it the error message is.
Failed to start the server machine [machine name]. Server machine 'http://[Machine name]:6080/arcgis/admin'
returned an error. 'Could not find resource or operation 'start' on the system.

I noticed the self cert was generated on the new machine, so I used the admin interface to generate it but still no go.

I'm at a loss here. Has anyone run across this?

Machine info:
Windows Server 2008 R2 Sp1 64bit
ArcGIS Server 10.2.2
