Thanks for this - I was banging my head all day on installing SP2013 on 2012R2 until I remembered about SP1 being out and needing it for 2012R2.
File Name: ru_sharepoint_server_2013_with_sp1_x64_dvd_3832244.iso
Release Date: 2/28/2014
I built a SharePoint 2013 as a farm on Server 2012, using a separate database server. After SP1 was released, I wanted to redo it on Server 2012 R2. It seems you can have as many servers in a farm as you want. So I built the new server and joined it to the existing farm. After I thought I had everything moved over and working, I uninstalled the old server.
Now it is telling me that the Security Token Service is failing, on the old server that doesn't exist anymore. I cannot just delete the service, it tells me it is required for the farm to function. And I cannot find any guidance anywhere on how to bring that service up on the new server and inform the farm of its new location.
I hope somebody here is a SharePoint expert because it becomes obvious I'm not. At least the function I wanted, a private storage accessible with "OneDrive for Business" on my computers and with the embedded Office on my Windows Phones, is working. I'm not sure what problems this Security Token Service is going to cause later on, or what additional SharePoint features it will prevent me from using.
One thing is for sure. SharePoint is way too complicated/convoluted, if all you're looking for is private cloud storage. I'm sure there are easier ways, I don't know if any of them would work with Office on a Windows Phone though.
great help, I was banging my head, why it didnt install on win 12 r2, now I got it
