PerformancePoint Install - Failed Windows Server 2003 SP1
I did a presentation last week about Business Intelligence in MOSS. During that, I showed how PerformancePoint's Dashboard Designer can be utilized and even report on lists in SharePoint - but another post on that later. For the presentation, I had to install PerformancePoint on my Virtual machine - which is running a small installation of MOSS. Only problem however was that my machine was also a domain controller.
PerformancePoint installer couldn't pass the Prerequisites, because it was looking for the Service Pack of a non domain-controller. Right - I understood that Microsoft didn't "want" me to install the software on a DC machine, but I needed to for my demo purposes. But I couldn't, because the 'Next' button was disabled. Ouch!
You can run the following commands to install PerformancePoint making it ignore the prerequisites check, and ultimately enabling the 'Next' button.
To skip check for Planning Server:
MSIEXEC /i PPLSrv.msi SKIPREQCHECK=1
To skip check for Monitoring Server:
MSIEXEC /i PSCSrv.msi SKIPREQCHECK=1
Note: /pps/ was the directory of my installation files
