Installing Pharos Blueprint Enterprise Prerequisites on Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 and 2016

While the Pharos Blueprint Enterprise Planning and Installation Guide discusses the necessary prerequisites for the Windows server, it does not provide an easy step-by-step process to install those on the Windows Server operating systems that are supported. Depending on the background of the individual assisting with the server build, this may mean that necessary components are missing, resulting in a failed installation, rework of the server configuration, and other activities that stretch the time for installation.



This document contains two PDF files that discuss prerequisite installation. One focuses on Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 and the other on Microsoft Windows Server 2016. While both operating systems are very similar in what is required, there is enough difference in their respective user interfaces to warrant separate documents.
