Today I’ve released the newest version 1.2.1 for my ConfigMgr 2012 R2 Prerequisites Installation tool.

CM2012R2_1.2.1_logo

The new features included are:

  • Added validation for checking of current user is a Schema Admin when extending the Schema
  • Added functionality to add Active Directory groups to the System Management container
  • Removed the need for the Active Directory powershell module, using System.DirectoryServices instead

You’ll find the tool and its documentation here:

ConfigMgr 2012 R2 Prerequisites Installation tool 1.2.1

You can download the tool from the TechNet Gallery here:

    Hi

    I tried the new version and there seems to be something wrong with the Install ADK Online part.

    It told that it completed the download and installation within a couple of seconds. It turned out to be and internet connection problem.

    Try to disable the nic and you can see for yourself.

    Regards
    Sem

      Hi Sem,

      Hmm, yeah you’re right when I look through that part of the code it doesn’t perform a check if there’s an active internet connection (I’m assuming there is). Will put that on the fix list for new version. Thanks for pointing that out!

      Regards,
      Nickolaj

        Well Internet connection is one thing, but it should say that it completed the installation when it didnt 😉

          I’ve corrected the WSUS WID issue now, made a check against the wrong variable. Updated on the TechNet gallery now!

            There is an issue with the WSUS SQL installation as well. As I ran the script whatever name I put into the SQL Server field I kept getting “Please enter a SQL Server computer name. Looking at your script code the problem could easily be located:

            if (($TextBoxWSUSSQLServer.Text.Length -eq 0) -or ($RadioButtonSQL.Checked -eq $true)) {
            Write-OutputBox -OutputBoxMessage “Please enter a SQL Server computer name” -Type “ERROR: ”

            The part where is goes wrong is:
            “-or $RadioButtonSQL.Checked -eq $true” which stops the script from continueing. Just replaced it with “-and $RadioButtonSQL.Checked -eq $true” and everything works fine.

            Regards,
            Thorsten
