To perform a pre-upgrade checker

Install SharePoint 2010 Foundation Pre-requisites

For this part of the upgrade, you must remove FIM1 from the private network and establish internet connectivity. This is so that SharePoint Foundation 2010 can automatically download and install the required pre-requisites.

To install SharePoint 2010 Foundation Pre-requisites

  1. Navigate to the directory that contains the SharePoint Foundation 2010 binaries and double-click SharePointFoundation.EXE. This will launch a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 screen that will indicate that files are being extracted. Once this completes you will see the splash screen.

  2. Take FIM1 off of the private network and reconfigure the network so that FIM1 can access the internet. This is so that we can download and install the SharePoint Foundation 2010 prerequisite software. This software can be installed manually prior to installing SharePoint Foundation 2010. The following list of pre-requisite software is provided so that these can be manually installed.
