I am looking to trial the Microsoft Forefront Security Anti-Virus as i can get it really cheap as part of my Schools Agreement. I have created a new virtual server to install it on and im getting some really stupid error messages!!
Error messages below:
- Warning having two or more processors is recommended - I have given it 4 in the virtual server software!
- Warning more RAM is recommended for the components (4096 required) - have set it as 4096 in virtual server settings.
- Error more disk space is required (Required space 19968mb) - has 43.6gb free!!
- Error could not contact SQL Server SERVERNAME - have installed sql express 2005 and installed sp2 for it.
- Could not access address http://SEVERNAME/Reports, server returned an error (404) not found - IIS6 installed!
- as above but /ReportServer
- The SQL Server service must be set to automatic startup - All SQL Services are set to automatic except 'SQL Server Active Directory Helper' and 'SQL Server Browser'
- as above but service SQL Server Agent.
Server is 2003 R2 SP2 with all available updates, GPMC, Report Viewer and WSUS 3.0 SP1. These are all the software pre-requisites for this software.
Firewall is off, and everything is on the same local machine
Just going to try this myself on Hyper-V, I'll let you know how I get on.
Is there a pre-requisite installer like sharepoint has?
Hmm Forefront management server doesn't install on Windows 2008 Server R2!!
Verifying your system requirements
Think I might wait until the update is out before testing it.
Damn shame as I need a solution to cover my R2 64bit servers.

Im trying to install on server 2003 r2 and it doesnt say that should be a problem!!
Heres my check log
Looks like this software is nowhere near finished, I also get the processor warning on a quad core virtualized system
thats the same ones i was getting. Im going to try it on a server 2003 (non R2) and also serve r2008 (non r2) to see if that makes a difference!
Is it possible that the software is not compatible with running on virtualized servers?
i hadnt thought of that! i will try a normal machine as well!! i have a spare quadcore machine next to me that should do the job nicely!
