Question about a prerequisites error regarding required hard drive space. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been tasked to install Forefront on a 2k3 SBS server (Premium Edition Software, 2.6Ghz Processor, 2Gig DDR2 SDRAM.) The Microsoft Forefront Client Security Setup on the "Verifying Settings and Requirements" screen it states "Error: More disk space is required for the specified component(s).  Required available disk space on drive  (in MB): 19968"; however, I am not sure what that error means.  This box has two 120GB raid 1 drives; of which we are only using 20GB, 100GB is free!  According to the error we need 19.968GB free; however, the server has way more than that.

     

    NOTE: I know that I must install the SQL 2k5 software on this box, please disregard the SQL errors. (unless, of course, this error has something to do with SQL not being installed.)

     

    Thank you for your time.

  • besides the SQL errors, just so you know, FCS is not supported on SBS servers.

     

    the space issues is usually caused by the DB location being default C Drive.

    Some servers don't have 20GB free space on their C drive and there for this requires changing the default DB location in SQL management studio (right clicking on the server -> Properties).
