I have an existing 2-tier SharePoint2010 farm which has SP2 and the November 2016 CU installed. I would like to add an additional WFE.
I have installed SharePoint2010 Server SP2 and the November 2016 CU on a new Windows Server 2012R2 VM. When I try to add the new WFE to the farm, I receive an error on Step 3 stating "Error during encryption. Ensure the passphrase is correct."
I've tried resetting the passphrase via Powershell and clearing out the configuration cache on my existing server. I've also ensured that I'm running the configuration wizard using the farm account. I can't seem to find any additional guidance.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what to try next?
