CM 12 R2 Prerequisites on Server 2012 R2

In a next couple of posts I will try to share automated scripts for various installations. First of them will be for installing all prerequisites for installation of System Center Configuration Manager 2012 R2 on Windows Server 2012 R2

Script is simple and code will be shown here, but at the bottom of this post you can find download link so you don’t need to type script.

NOTE: In this script you need to be adjust path to configuration file and name of configuration file if you will use other than this

Open PowerShell and type:

Install-WindowsFeature –ConfigurationFilePath <CM12Prereqs.xml>

(mine is looking like this:

Install-WindowsFeature -ConfigurationFilePath ./CM12Prereqs.xml)

Here you can find .ps1 and .xml file for download as a .zip file CM12Prereqs.zip
More about this can be foud here
