    Hello there,

    What is the exact error message that you are getting when you try to edit the network configuration?

    If you go to Server Manager->Local Server and in Properties view you see you´r nic. Are you able to change there?

    Run gpedit.msc to open Group Policy Editor, then switch to Computer Configuration---> Windows Settings---> Security Settings ---> Local Policies---> Security Options, then Disable "User Account Control: Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator account", after all restart Windows to take effect.

    By default, this option is Enabled. You need to disable it, restart the machine and see if that helps

    The below thread discusses the same issue and you can try out some troubleshooting steps from this and see if that helps you to sort the Issue.
