Unable to install the prerequisites on SharePoint Server 2013


  • Hi all,

    I am currently installing the SharePoint Server 2013 prerequisites on a Windows Server 2012 R and I am facing error 'The tool was unable to install Application Server role, Web Server (IIS) role'. I have tried various ways:

    1. Add IIS. .NET Framework 4.5 from Add Roles / Features

    2. Perform a Windows Update

    3. Perform steps from this link:

    4. Run these PowerShell commands as well: Add-WindowsFeature Application-Server,Web-Server,Windows-Identity-Foundation,NET-Framework-45-ASPNET,Web-Mgmt-Console,Web-Mgmt-Compat,Web-Metabase,Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console,Web-Lgcy-Scripting,Web-Mgmt-Tools,Web-WMI,AS-Web-Support,Web-Common-HTTP,NET-HTTP-Activation,NET-Non-HTTP-Activ,NET-WCF-HTTP-Activation45 -Source

    Please note that none of these steps have worked. Please help me how to solve this issue.
