    I am running SCVMM 2012 SP1 (not R2) on Windows 2012 R2 – and am having same issue with the “Next” button greyed out. I cannot remove those patches because they don’t exist in 2012 R2. Any suggestions?

      Recomendation be to add the storage provider through PowerShell (Add-SCStorageProvider).

      Also can you verify Security update KB2840632 exist in this server. This is a VMM bug that was due to recent .NET Framework update
