Allow installation of Microsoft Azure Backup Server on Windows Server 2016
Currently you’re not able to use Windows Server 2016 as OS to deploy your Microsoft Azure Backup Server (MABS) on. For the moment the only supported servers OSs are Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 (R2) or Windows Server 2008 R2. It's not possible to install it on Windows Server 2016 because during the installation you get stopped by a missing component, namely the Single Instance Store (SIS) component.
You can install Azure Backup Server V2 @ http://aka.ms/microsoftazurebackupserver on Windows Server 2016.
We have announced the new Azure Backup Server (MABS), which protects latest business critical applications such as SQL 2016, SharePoint 2016, Exchange 2016 and also Windows Server 2016 and helps in reducing backup storage consumed on disk to drive down on-premises storage costs for customers using Modern Backup Storage.

Two Microsoft products not compatible, now I'm stuck.....
would be nice to hear from Microsoft on this one, any ETA yet?
Would be nice to install it on the latest OS version instead of the "old" server 2012r2.
