Cant "claim" server?

When I login to my new plex server it says

So I click the button... it spins and spins...

And then does nothing... No error. No message... Just stops and does nothing.

So this problem is beyond frustrating at this point. Ive reinstalled plex entirely on a completely new OS. 2 times same issue. Tried disabling firewall all together. Nothing.

Any help would be extremely appreciated. Thank you.

    So after a while of scratching my head. I found the issue. It wasnt with how I was setting the software up it was how the hardware was setup. For some reason when I expanded my datastore in VMware, it causes plex to completely stop working. I rebuilt the array and plex is back to working chip and cheer.

    Thanks for all the help!
