I performed an upgrade from WSS SP2 to SPF 2010 SP1 on Windows Server 2012 RTM

I have decided to install SMTP Service on the this server. I configured outgoing email.

How do do I resolve this error? Where do I go to resolve it?

I removed the first entry by clicking on "Remove Server", went to configure outgoing e-mail settings, enter the mail settings, click OK, went back to "manage servers in farm" page, still says Not Configured. If I click on the server (first column), I get access denied. But, I can remove the server. –  Hossein Aarabi Oct 2 '12 at 20:18

According to this MSDN article:

You can’t install SharePoint Foundation 2010 on Windows Server 2012. If you want to use the standard configuration on Windows Server 2012, you must skip the installation of SharePoint Foundation 2010.

But, I have been able to install and configure SPF 2010 on WS 2012. At least 95% complete. Many sites out there also provide you guidance on how you can hack the installation so that it works at least partially.

This is how I resolved my issue...

  1. On the screenshot above, for the first entry, I selected Remove Server.
  2. Went back to Outgoing E-Mail Settings page. Set the Outbound SMTP server to server name instead of the IP name.

The "Servers in farm" page looks like this, now: enter image description here

This is not an error on its own, basically the topology listing logic is thinking that all servers in the farm (including the SMTP server which is most of the time outside of the farm but on the same network) are SharePoint server which is obviously usually not the case for the SP Server.

If you have a separate SMTP server without SP installed on it you will see this and you can safely dismiss this "not configured" message as there are no additional configuration required.

The SMTP service Role is running on the same server (please see the new screenshot above). The problem is I have install/upgraded SP 2010 SP1 on Windows Server 2012. According to this MSDN article (msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd631899.aspx): "You can’t install SharePoint Foundation 2010 on Windows Server 2012. If you want to use the standard configuration on Windows Server 2012, you must skip the installation of SharePoint Foundation 2010." –  Hossein Aarabi Oct 3 '12 at 18:20
