SharePoint 2016 Prerequisite installation error

So trying out the SharePoint 2016, while installing the prerequisite I’ve encountered that it was unable to install the Microsoft Information Protection and Control Client 2.1 as shown below:

sp error

So I went through the web and found this link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=38396

Just download it, install and run the prerequisite again

Then another error I have encountered was that it unable to install the .NET Framework 4.6

So here’s the link: – make sure your windows updates are updated

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42334

And re-run again the SharePoint prerequisite.

That’s it for me.

CRM installation error

Hi All,

During my CRM installation I have encountered this error:
Unable to open the physical file "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\MSCRM_CONFIG.mdf".

So I look up on the net and found this solution:

  • Stop MSSQLSERVER services
  • Go to “C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA” and delete MSCRM_CONFIG.mdf and MSCRM_CONFIG_log.ldf
  • Start MSSQLSERVER services
  • Then re-run the installation.

It works!

Setting up Active Directory

Hi All,

I have installed Windows Server 2012 RC Datacenter to one of my VMs. So now let’s see what things need to be done to set up an Active Directory.

  • First thing you’ll see once the OS is running is the Server Manager window.

2-1

  • Then go to Local Server and change the Computer name by clicking it. And the OS will be restarted. In my case, I’ve rename it to CAMP.

2-1

  • Once restarted, on the Server Manager window click on Manage > Add Roles and Features on the top right corner as shown below:

2-1

  • The wizard will starts, click Next.
  • For Installation type, choose Role-based or feature-based installation.

2-1

  • For Server Selection, let it be and click Next.
  • For Server Roles, select Active Directory Domain Services. And a wizard will shows up, just click on Add Features.

2-8

2-8

  • For Features, just click Next.
  • For AD DS, click Next.
  • Then Confirmation, click Install. Once it’s done then close it you’ll see new option is added named AS DS.

2-8


Then you’ll notice there’s a warning in yellow which telling you that there’s configuration need to be done.

So what you do is,

  • Click on the flag on the top right corner and click on Promote this server to domain controller.

2-8

  • A wizard shows up, on Deployment Configuration choose Add a new forest and fill in the root domain name e.g AD.LOCAL or CP.LOCAL (in my case).
  • For Domain Controller Options, fill in the DSRM password.
  • For DNS Options, let it be and click Next.
  • You will get NetBIOS automatically and click Next.
  • For Paths, click Next
  • For Review Options, click Next
  • For Prerequisites Check, checking will start and click Install when it’s done. (Make sure your connection is working)
  • Once it is done, you will be signed off then your server will be an Active Directory Server with installed DNS.

That’s it!

SharePoint 2013 installation error

Hi all,

While installing the SharePoint 2013 onto my VM (Windows Server 2012) I’ve encountered this problem during the prerequisite installer.

Capture

“The tool was unable to install Application Server Role, Web Server (IIS) Role”

The steps to fix it are:

  • Go to windows > system32.
  • Look for servermanager.exe, copy the file and paste in the same folder.
  • Rename it to servermanagercmd.exe.
  • Re-run the Prerequisites installer again, it will work.

**Make sure you enabled the Web Server (IIS) role and the Application Server role in Server Manager.

Introduction to Hyper-V

Hi all,

Before talking about Hyper-V let’s talk a bit on Virtualization. Virtualization takes place on the same hardware platform after installing specific software – hypervisor. The hypervisor is an additional layer between physical and virtual spheres; it manages the system’s hardware resources so they are distributed efficiently among virtual machines (VMs).

List below are the Microsoft Virtualization Solutions:

  • Server Virtualization (Hyper-V) -> which we will be focusing on
  • Client Virtualization
  • Profile Virtualization
  • Azure Virtual Machines
  • Desktop Virtualization (VDI)
  • Application Virtualization (App-V)

Personally for me, virtual machine is important especially when comes to testing because if something went wrong it can be restarted or create new one without causing damages to the your computer.


So what exactly is Hyper-V?

It basically enables you to run more than one operating system using virtual machine at the same time on the same PC.

Steps to enable Hyper-V:

  • Go to Control Pane > Programs and Features.

Untitled

  • Click on Turn Windows features on or off.

Untitled

  • Select Hyper-V as shown in the red rectangle below.

Untitled

  • Click OK and restart your computer.
  • After restarted, you’ll see the Hyper-V on your start menu.

Steps to create virtual machine:

  • Run the Hyper-V Manager.
  • Right-click your computer name on the side bar.

Untitled

  • Select New > Virtual Machine.
  • Window as shown below will pop up, click Next.

Untitled

  • On Specify Name and Location page, enter the name of your virtual machine.

Untitled

  • On Specify Generation page, use the default setting and click Next.

Untitled

  • Next is the Assign Memory page, you can enter value (less than your memory size) to the Startup Memory or use the default value, click Next..

Untitled

  • Use default setting on Configure Networking page and click Next.

Untitled

  • For Connect Virtual Hard Disk page. Check your VM name, location and size (less than your hdd size). Click Next.

Untitled

  • Next is the Installation Option page, if you’re using an image file (.iso) then click on the second option button as shown below and specify the location of the image file. Click Finish.

Untitled

  • To run the VM, right-click the virtual machine on the list
  • First, Start the virtual machine then Connect

Untitled

  • And you are ready to install your operating system to be installed on VM.

That’s it! Enjoy using Hyper-V.
