Pre-requisites for Installing System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager on a single box
So here’s a list of things you need to get installed first before you can safely install SCVMM 2012 on Windows Server 2008 R2. Components like .NET Framework 3.5.1 though needed as part of the pre-requisites is not listed because it is automatically installed when you run through the SQL install. Hope that makes your life easier as it has certainly made mine easier without having to memorize nor refer to the supported configuration documents every time I run an install.
SQL Server Database Engine (Apply Service Pack 1)
Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK) for Windows 7
Web Server (IIS)
- .NET Extensibility
- IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility
- IIS 6 WMI Compatibility
- ISAPI Extensions
- ISAPI Filters
- Request Filtering
- Static Content
Oh, one more thing, make sure your VM or server has at least 4096 or memory. If not it’ll also fail the pre-req check.
