9.1 Windows Server 2016 Support

Features have been removed in Windows Server 2016, in particular the ‘Application Server’ Role was deprecated in Windows Server 2012 R2 and has now been removed in Windows Server 2016.

It is possible to configure the 9.1 HPE Content Manager Governance and Compliance app by installing the individual features and roles of the Application Server separately but it is not possible to configure the HPE Content Manager Governance and Compliance app by using the Configuration Wizard.

The HPE Content Manager Governance and Compliance app installation and configuration is supported by configuring the HPE Content Manager Governance and Compliance app using the Configuration Tool and the HPE Content Manager Governance and Compliance app: Installation Guide.

An error has been seen while attempting to navigate to the HPE Content Manager Farm URL in Windows Server 2016. If you are receiving a ‘The Web server is configured to not list the contents of this directory’ error when browsing in the HPE Content Manager Farm URL, enable browsing for the IIS Site by performing the following steps:
