Installation of SQL Server 2012 on Server 2012 beta: NetFx3.5 is a Feature on Demand

Given:

If you are installing SQL Server 2012 on a brand new Windows Server 2012 and your virtual machine is not connected to the internet, you might ran into the SQL Server requirement for .NET 3.5.

Although it is available in the Add Roles and Features Wizard, this is not the solution. The screenshots below will show you the result if you try to preform this action.

Asked

Install .NET 3.5 and rerun the installation procedure.

Solution

In Windows 8,.Net Framework 3.5 is now a Feature on Demand and cannot be installed directly, but by using one of the following options:

  1. Windows Update (WU)
  2. A Windows Image file (.wim) to which the payload has been added
  3. The \sources\sxs folder on the installation media

The last option is what we are going to apply.

  1. Insert the Windows 8 installation image or DVD
  2. Open a command window (runas Administrator),
  3. Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /All /Source:D:\sources\SxS /LimitAccess

Note: make sure that the source location is available!

After rerunning the SQL Server installation procedure, all kpi’s are green…
You know how much we like green kpi’s!

If you are interested, there is more detailed information on the Ask the Core Team blog.
http://blogs.technet.com/b/askcore/archive/2012/05/14/windows-8-and-net-framework-3-5.aspx

There, I fixed it, hope it helps!

Tom

PS: kudos to Pascal Benois for mentioning the Dism option on lync yesterday evening :)

SharePoint 2010, server 2012 and Powershell 3: Microsoft SharePoint is not supported with version 4.0.30319.17626 of the Microsoft .Net Runtime

If you are running SharePoint 2010 on a Server 2012 OS be aware of the current compatibilty issue that is identified with SharePoint Powershell and Powershell 3.

In order to make use of the powerfull powershell commands, all you need to do is switch the powershell version back to version 2.
Note: This will not uninstall version 3, it will simply launch a new powershell instance that uses version 2.

There I fixed it!
