    Forefront Security Install Error

    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.

    Any ideas??

    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.

    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?
