Web Console prerequisites, OpsMgr 2012

When installing the Web Console there is a couple of components that is required, the Operations Manager 2012 Supported Configuration (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh205990.aspx) list these:

  • Recommended processor speed: 2.8 GHz or faster.
  • Minimum memory: not less than 2 GB.
  • Operating System: Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Processor Architecture: must be AMD64
  • Internet Information Services (IIS) v7.5 or later, with the IIS Management Console and the following role services installed:
    • Static Content
    • Default Document
    • Directory Browsing
    • HTTP Errors
    • HTTP Logging
    • Request Monitor
    • Request Filtering
    • Static Content Compression
    • Web Server (IIS) Support
    • IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility
    • ASP.NET
    • Windows Authentication
  • Default website: must have an http or https binding configured
  • Both .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and .NET Framework 4 is required for setup to run. For more information, see the following.

 

The role services is easily installed with powershell, which makes it a little quicker then using Server Manager GUI:

Import-Module ServerManager
Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework-Core,Web-WebServer,Web-Static-Content,Web-Default-Doc,Web-Dir-Browsing,Web-Http-Errors,Web-Asp-Net,Web-Http-Logging,Web-Request-Monitor,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Filtering,Web-Stat-Compression,Web-Mgmt-Console,Web-Metabase

As you might see I’ve also added NET-Framework-Core  (.NET Framework 3.5.1) there as well.

When the IIS install is ready you should install .NET Framework 4. (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=17851)

If you installed .NET Framework 4 before installing the IIS you’ll get an error:

The ASP.NET 4.0 handler is not registered with IIS.
The ASP.NET 4.0 handler is not registered with IIS 

To fix this, the Operations Manager 2012 Deployment document states that you should run:

%WINDIR%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe -r

I suggest that that you add the -enable option (%WINDIR%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe -enable -r), that enables the ASP.NET ISAPI extension. And gets rid of this prerequisites error:

Web Console cannot operate properly because the ISAPI and CGI Restrictions in Internet Information Services (IIS) are disabled or missing for ASP.NET 4.0.
Web Console cannot operate properly because the ISAPI and CGI Restrictions in Internet Information Services (IIS) are disabled or missing for ASP.NET 4.0.

Lastly do a restart of the server before running the setup again.
