Today I’ve released the newest version 1.3.0 for my ConfigMgr 2012 R2 Prerequisites Installation tool.

95_1

Whats new:

  • Re-designed the user interface to feature tabs instead of buttons
  • Validation checks are now executed on first launch, some minor validation checks still exists for specific parts of the tool
  • Support for Windows Server 2008 R2 has been removed, supported platforms are now Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2

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,

    This tool seems like a great ideea but it’s not working for me.

    I have a 2012R2 Server fully updated with powershell 4.0.
    I’m running the script elevated, I see the progress bar but the features are not installed. A logging function would be useful here.
    As far as I can tell the script does not get to the Add-WindowsFeature $CurrentFeature part of the script, by the way I had to add Import-ServerManager line in order for the script to work.

    Hi,

    In case no one else has reported it to you; If there is a space in the folder path that is specified when selecting the “Download prerequisites files” the download will fail with a showing the parameters for setupdl.exe. (If my folder is called “SCCM Prerequisites” it fails, works with “SCCMPrequisites”)

      Hi Odd-Magne,

      Thank you for pointing that out, you were actually the first!

      I believe that I’ve now resolved this issue. It worked out well in my lab environment when I chose a folder containing spaces. The updated script is now available on the TechNet Gallery. I’d appreciate if you could also verify that it works.

      Best regards,
      Nickolaj

    Hi,

    I had some issues on a site that we connect to over VPN. It would always give the error “The trust relationship between the primary domain and the trusted domain failed.” When running the “Validate-Elevated” function in the script.
    The part in the function that was causing this issue was “$UserWP.IsInRole(“S-1-5-32-544″)”.
    It was possible to “manually” look at the $UserWP variable and find the value. But not when it was written as above.

    So I edited the top part of the “Validate-Elevated” function to look like this:
    ————–
    $UserIdentity = [System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent()
    $UserWP = [bool](([Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]$UserIdentity).groups|?{$_.value -eq ‘S-1-5-32-544’})
    if ($UserWP -eq $true)
    ————–
