70-247 Series: Part 6

Design and Deploy System Center (19%) Continued….

Installing Highly Available System Center App Controller

Prepare the database instance

I'm installing SQL Server 2008 R2 on a Failover cluster.

The only real 'gotcha' when installing the instance is the collation, as a general rule, use the following collation for ALL System Center products:

Install Pre-requisites for App Controller

I've prepared two servers that will be load-balanced, the servers are:

  • APPCTR1 192.168.10.141
  • APPCTR2 192.168.10.142

The pre-requisites for App Controller are:

  • .Net Framework 4
  • IIS including the following role services:
    • Static Content
    • Default Document
    • Directory Browsing
    • HTTP Errors
    • ASP.NET
    • .NET Extensibility
    • ISAPI Extensions
    • ISAPI Filters
    • HTTP Logging
    • Request Monitor
    • Tracing
    • Basic Authentication
    • Windows Authentication
    • Request Filtering
    • Static Content Compression
    • IIS Management Consol
  • VMM Console

The App Controller installer will install .Net Framework and the IIS Role Services automatically if they are missing when the installer is run. You will need an Internet connection to install .Net 4.0 automatically. I will pre-install the VMM Console on each of the servers.

Alright, that’s the install for App Controller, next up we’ll take a look at Operations Manager. It’s a little more complicated to install.
