In the previous post we added SQL server to the ConfigMgr server. In this post we will start installation of the pre-reqs of Config Manager.
Part 6 – Installation of Config Mgr PreReqs
Log on to ConfigMgr with SMSadmin. Go to D:\SMSSETUP\BIN\X64 and run cmd. In cmd, run prereqchk /LOCAL select Yes to the next prompt. You may need to also add the UserState migration tool (USMT), Windows Deployment Tools, and Windows Preinstall environment.
If you are running SQL Server 2008r2 you need to update to SP2. In this case the package is named: SQLServer2008R2SP2-KB2630458-x64-ENU. If you are running any other configuration you should check the microsoft link:
I needed to download: Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) for Windows 8.1 Update
Running the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit consists of downloading the executable and running it.
All of the selected features will be downloaded. This is a huge amount of space and really gets close on the limit of the server. It may also take awhile depending on your network connection.
Although there is no reboot required, I rebooted the server anyway after installing the updates. When the server came back up I ran the prerequisite checker by going to: D:\SMSSETUP\BIN\X64 and running cmd, and then prereqchk /LOCAL
This is the output I have received:
Although I have not set up Windows Software Update Services (WSUS) on this box yet, I will configure it later. I do not have 8 GB of memory dedicated to the VM, so I am getting the 2nd error message.
It’s now ready to install, onto Post 7 – Installing Configuration Manager
