Automate SCOM 2012 SP1 Prerequisites Installation with PowerShell by Richard Qi

System Center 2012 SP1 is now available for public download. I am actually refreshing few demo labs I have. System Center Operation Manager is one those components in System Center actually has quite few prerequisites.

Configuring these prerequisites can be frustrating, especially if you are doing it for the first time. There is a way to actually simply this by using PowerShell, which is pretty much the coolest tool for efficiency.

The real credit of this goes to Kevin Greene, a system center MVP, who posted a details blog post on this.

Here are the two scripts that I often use for Combined Management server deployment of SCOM2012 SP1.

Windows Server 2008 – Combined Management
Server, Operations Console and Web Console Roles PreReq
Script

#This section will
install all the Windows Server 2008 Roles and Feature Prereqs for the Web
Console Role#
import-module
servermanager
Add-WindowsFeature
NET-Framework-Core,Web-Static-Content,Web-Default-Doc,Web-Dir-Browsing,Web-Http-Errors,Web-Http-Logging,Web-Request-Monitor,Web-Filtering,Web-Stat-Compression,AS-Web-Support,Web-Metabase,Web-Asp-Net,Web-Windows-Auth,AS-HTTP-Activation
–restart

#This section will download the Report Viewer Distributable
Prereq for the SCOM 2012 SP1 Operations Console role on Windows Server 2008 to a folder on the C:\ drive called
SCOM2012SP1Prereqs and will then install it automatically #

$dwnld =
“C:\SCOM2012SP1Prereqs”
if (!(Test-Path -path
$dwnld))
{
New-Item $dwnld -type directory
}
$object = New-Object
Net.WebClient
$RPTurl =
‘http://download.microsoft.com/download/E/A/1/EA1BF9E8-D164-4354-8959-F96843DD8F46/ReportViewer.exe’
$object.DownloadFile($RPTurl,
“$dwnld\ReportViewer.exe”)
Start-Process
-FilePath “$dwnld\ReportViewer.exe” -ArgumentList /q -Wait

#This section will

$object.DownloadFile($RPTurl,
“$dwnld\dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe”)
Start-Process -FilePath “$dwnld\dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe”
-ArgumentList /q -Wait

    For Windows Server 2012R2 with SCOM 2012 R2 preview, you only need to add the Windows-Identity-Foundation to the powershell script to be able to install SCOM.
