Downloading Configuration Manager 2012 Prerequisites

Recently I faced a problem while configuring my SCCM 2012 sever. During the initial steps of the installation; the setup requires to download some prerequisites in order to continue with the installation. As for my case the server was offline and not connected to the Internet hence I needed to download them on a separate machine. I searched a lot of forums and blogs but the solutions presented were not clear. I then tried to download the required files separately on my own but to no avail and the SCCM installer first verifies the prerequisites and then continues with the installation. Hence if you are downloading the prerequisites on a separate machine; make sure of the following points.

  • Make sure the machine connected to the internet on which you are downloading the prerequisites is a 64-bit machine.
  • Many forums suggested to copy the %\SMSSETUP\BIN\X64\setupdl.exe to the internet machine. Only downloading this file wont work. Hence make sure to download the complete folder %\SMSSETUP\BIN\X64\ to the Internet machine.
  • Once the folder is copied to the internet machine; simply double-click the setupdl.exe. This is what you will get:

  • When prompted; specify the path for the downloads.

  • Now just set back a relax! It will take a good 30 mins or so depending upon you Internet link. It will specify a total number of 41 files to be downloaded.

  • There would be a total of 406 files on granular level and a total of 394 MB. BTW am loving my Windows 8! 😉 Its light, its fast! And its very customizable! Just note the date in the above snap 😛 Ok jokes apart!
  • Just copy the folder to your SCCM server and continue with your installation.

  •  Now my SCCM server is all ready but still not mature yet! As I learn the basics and prop my server; I will make sure to share along! Till then Adios!
