SharePoint Server 2013 Offline Installation (without Internet)

    Question

  • I have created Virtual machine, Installed Windows Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008 R2.

    I was able to install all the SharePoint Server 2013 pre-requisities except "Cumulative Update Package 1 for Microsoft AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server (KB 2671763)". It is giving error as "

    1. Microsoft .NET Framework version 4.5

    2. Windows Management Framework 3.0

    3. Application Server Role, Web Server (IIS) Role

    4. Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 Native Client

    5. Windows Identity Foundation (KB974405)

    6. Microsoft Sync Framework Runtime v1.0 SP1 (x64)

    7. Windows Identity Extensions

    8. Microsoft Information Protection and Control Client

    9. Microsoft WCF Data Services 5.0

    10.               Windows Server AppFabric

    11. Cumulative Update Package 1 for Microsoft AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server (KB 2671763)

    Is it ok to skip the step 11 installation and proceed with the SharePoint Server 2013?

    Please suggest.

    Prerequisite

    Direct Link

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/5a4x27ek.aspx

    Windows Management Framework 3.0

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34595

    Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 Native Client

    Go to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=262370 and manually download and install the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1   Native Client (1033\x64\sqlncli.msi).

    Windows Identity Foundation (KB974405)

    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkID=224449

    Windows Server AppFabric

    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=235496

    Download   it but don’t install it by yourself since it needs configuration, hence   install all other prerequisites in this article (except this one) then let   the prerequisite installer to install it and configure it manually for you by   running the following command from command prompt:

    prerequisiteInstaller.exe   /appfabric:[Full AppFabric Installer path]

      

    D: is the   CD drive where SharePoint installer is placed

    Note: don’t   install WindowsServerAppFabricSetup_x64_6.1 this is not the correct version   that SharePoint installer seeks

    Microsoft Information Protection and Control Client

    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkID=219568

    Microsoft WCF Data Services 5.0

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29306

    Cumulative Update Package 1 for Microsoft AppFabric 1.1 for Windows   Server (KB2671763

    Download   AppFabric1.1-RTM-KB2671763-x64-ENU.exe from

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29241

    You need   to Install AppFabric from above first then this update.

    Step 5: Copy all the prerequisites in prerequisitesinstallerfiles folder present in the SharePoint Server 2013 Setup folder location

    Step 6: Create arguments file and place it in the same folder where prerequisiteinstaller.exe is present

    Steps for creating argument file is as follows

      • Using a text editor, create a new text document named PrerequisiteInstaller.Arguments.txt. Save this file to the same location as PrerequisiteInstaller.exe. This file will contain the switches and arguments that are used when you run the Microsoft SharePoint Products Preparation Tool.
      • Using a text editor, edit PrerequisiteInstaller.Arguments.txt and provide file paths to the installation source for each prerequisite switch by using the following syntax:

    /switch: <path>

    Where /switch is a valid switch and <path> is a path of the installation source.

    The following example shows a complete arguments file that uses a file share as a common installation point. Do not include carriage returns in your file.

    /PowerShell:"<path>\WINDOWS6.1-KB2506143-x64.msu" /NETFX:"<path>\dotNetFx45_Full_x86_x64.exe" /IDFX:"<path>\Windows6.1-KB974405-x64.msu" /sqlncli:"<path>\sqlncli.msi" /Sync:"<path>\Synchronization.msi" /AppFabric:"<path>\setup.exe" /IDFX11:"<path>\Microsoft Identity Extensions.msi" /MSIPCClient:"<path>\msipc.msi" /WCFDataServices:"<path>\WcfDataServices.exe" /KB2671763:"<path>\AppFabric1.1-RTM-KB2671763-x64-ENU.exe
    1. After you finish editing PrerequisiteInstaller.Arguments.txt, save your edits, and verify that this file is in the same directory as PrerequisiteInstaller.exe.

    Use the following procedure to install the prerequisites.

    Step 7: To install the prerequisites using an arguments file

    1. Run PrerequisiteInstaller.exe at the command prompt to install the prerequisites.

    If you are prompted to click Finish to   restart the system, do not do so. Instead, click Cancel.   For more information, see Known   issues you continue with the next step.

    1. Restart the system manually.
    2. At the command prompt type the following command and then press Enter:

    PrerequisiteInstaller.exe

    Step 8: Install SharePoint Server 2013 RTM

    Step 9: Select Standalone option

    Step 10: Follow the solution to the below errors for completing the installation and configuration

    Handling Errors while installing (Stand-Alone) SharePoint 2013

    While installing SharePoint 2013 for a Stand-Alone setup on a non-domain based VM you might encounter some issues like the below

    1. Service running under Network Service Account in      workgroup environment is not supported
    2. ErrorCode<UnspecifiedErrorCode>: SubStatus      <ES0001>: The Workstation service has not been started
    3. The SDDL string contains an invalid sid or a sid that      cannot be translated. Parameter name: sddlForm

    Solution:

    Stand-Alone option will install SQL Server Express Edition on the VM and user installing must have sufficient rights (Setup admin) on the database. In order to give the permissions / rights, install SQL Server 2008 R2 Management Studio and provide access as shown below. Access the below from you SQL Server Management Studio using (.\SharePoint) instance > Security > Logins > {logged in user account} > Server Roles >

    • Services required to run the Configuration Wizard
      1. AppFabric Caching Service
      2. SQL Server Agent (SHAREPOINT)
  • Workstation - need to be started.
  • run the following PSConfig command to create      configuration database without registering distributed cache host.
         PS: You need to run the Configuration Wizard once again since the below      command will not run the configuration fully.

       1:  psconfig.exe -cmd Configdb Create SkipRegisterAsDistributedCacheHost

    And here are some errors I have encountered for your reference. I have made sure that every time there was an error, I did go to the log file, verified the internals. 
     

    Error at 8th step of create sample data While installing SP2013 in standalone mode with
    psconfig.exe -cmd Configdb create SkipRegisterAsDistributedCacheHost

    Solution:

    Now if you just read through the error while configuration

    1

    2

    Microsoft.SharePoint.Win32.SPNetApi32.CreateFileShare(String   name, String description, String path)

    at   Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.AnalyticsAdministration.CreateAnalyticsUNCShare(String   dirParentLocation, String shareName)

    It looks like the error occurred while trying to create analytics UNCShare. So I tried going to

    “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\15.0\Data\Office Server\”

    there I found one folder “Analytics_”+ guid. So i tried doing the same i.e. share the folder . Gave permissions to Everyone (best guess is WSS_Admin_WPG and the account which is running the search service should do

    After this when I ran the configuration again – no more error – setup was successful
