Installing OCS 2007 R2 Prerequisites on Windows Server 2008

Commands to install the necessary prerequisites for OCS 2007 R2 on Windows Server 2008 SP2

Front End on Windows Server 2008
ServerManagerCmd -i web-windows-auth web-mgmt-compat web-mgmt-console web-http-logging msmq-server msmq-directory powershell was-process-model was-config-apis rsat-addc

Installs the following components:

  • [Web-Windows-Auth] – Windows Authentication
  • [Web-Mgmt-Compat] – IIS 6 Management Compatibility
  • [MSMQ-Server] – Message Queuing Server
  • [MSMQ-Directory] – Directory Service Integration
  • [RSAT-ADDC] – Active Directory Domain Controller Tools
  • [WAS-Process-Model] – Process Model
  • [WAS-Config-APIs] – Configuration APIs
  • [Web-Mgmt-Console] – IIS Management Console
  • [Web-Http-Logging] – HTTP Logging
  • [PowerShell] – Windows PowerShell                                   

The last three commands in the list are not required, but they are recommended. IIS 7.0 Management Console is IMHO much easier to use than the IIS 6.0 version. The logging tools often come in handy when troubleshooting OCS IIS issues and PowerShell makes working with OCS WMI values a piece of cake.

NOTE: If you are to run the create pool wizard from the Front End server, you also need the MS SQL Native Client: X64 Package (sqlncli.msi) – 7963 KB
