I have got an issue with remote installing prerequisits and I hope someone knows a solution that is better than mine.
After the first farm server (wfe1 with CA etc.) has been installed the script starts to remotely install the other servers. When installing prerequisits the script connects succesfully but does not continue after the installation of the sql native client.
My environment consists of a db cluster, 2 wfe, 2 app and 1 search. Prerequists are available offline and the script is configured to run offline, remote and parallel. The servers have no internet connection. The OS (Win 2008 R2) is fully updated.
When manually installing prerequsists there comes up a popup for those packages that have already been installed (through windows update probably). But the script still does not continue over the installation of the sql native client even after stopping
it and running it again. All servers have been restarted to make sure there is no leftover installation process running.
Maybe there is a hidden popup from the packages installer blocking the process? It seems the script can't handle those. Am I right or wrong?
Thank you in advance!
