Welcome to the post that covers installing SCCM 2012 prerequisites. If you have landed on to this post, let me brief you about it’s related posts. This post is a part of SCCM 2012 installation in lab setup. Before we install SCCM, we have to first install Configuration Manager prerequisites. This is more about preparing the server before you install Configuration Manager.
In Part 1 I covered active directory installation required for SCCM. Part 2 covers the steps to create system management container and extend the active directory schema. I suggest you complete the steps mentioned those posts. If you already done that, proceed with steps mentioned in this post. We will install per-requisites and prepare our server for SCCM installation.
