SCCM 2012 SP1 Setup : download of updates failed because proxy credentials not requested by setup. Setupdl.exe do not ask proxy credentials too. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I'm trying to install SCCM 2012 SP1 on a Windows 2008 R2 server.
    But I stick at the step when setup download the product updates in a directory or a file share.

    My server is behind a proxy server. The proxy server requests credential to grant access to internet.

    But setupwpf.Exe or setupdl do not ask for theses credentials and give up the download.

    When using IE, I can access to internet after giving my credential.

    => So my question is How to configure a proxy to download theses update ?

    In ConfigMgrSetuplog.txt, one can read

  • You can downloaded those prerequisites using whatever computer you want to. Just run setupdl.exe manually.

  • I know that, but I would like to avoid to download theses files from a personnal computer at home for security reasons.

  • I'm proxied at work - how am I supposed to download and test this?

  • A proxy should not cause any issues. I've downloaded the prereqs many times using a proxy server (but there are a lot of proxies out there so YMMV). Have you already tried it?

  • Try this by manually download the files first! http://ketstech.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/sccm-2012-sp1-prerequisites-downloads.html

    No. Why isn't the manual method working for you?
