A Read Only Domain Controller (RODC) can only be used as a Host if it was already a Host prior to being promoted. If a RODC needs to be used as a Host and was not previously managed by SCVMM, it will have to be demoted to a member server and made a managed Host prior to promotion back to RODC.
Important: Although a Read Only Domain Controller can be used as Host in SCVMM, this is not the recommended usage of a Read Only Domain Controller.
Note: If the steps above do not work, demote the server to a member server and start over. This time, after Step 7, on the “Delegation of RODC Installation and Administrators” section of the wizard, set BUILTIN\Administrators as the group.
