Pre-Downloading SCCM 2012 Prerequisites


As all of you know, one of the first installation steps is the Update Prerequisite Components.

If you don’t have access to internet on your SCCM server then you have to download the required updates on another computer, import the folder on the SCCM server and have SCCM setup pointing to the folder.

In the previous version (SCCM 2007) the command was Setup.exe /downloads <target dir>. In SCCM 2012 this has changed, and the new command is SetupDL.exe <target dir>.

The SetupDL.exe file is located in the SMSSETUP\BIN\X64 directory.
