Unified Installer is not supported when it is installed on a domain controller.

The following are the recommended hardware requirements for the Unified Installer target computers. These computers can be physical or virtual servers.

  • CPU: Dual-core 2.1 gigahertz (GHz)

  • RAM: 2 gigabytes (GB) minimum, 4 GB recommended

  • Disk space: 10 GB of free space

The following are the software requirements for running the Unified Installer:

  • One of the following versions of Windows operating systems:

    • 64-bit edition of Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

    • 64-bit edition of Windows Server 2008 R2 with (SP1)

  • Internet Information Services (IIS)

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.51

  • Windows PowerShell 2.0

Microsoft .NET Framework 3.51 is installed as a feature in Service Manager. Adding .NET Framework 3.51 installs IIS. Windows PowerShell 2.0 is installed with Windows Server 2008 R2.

You must use the same OS locale on both the installer computer (the computer where you run the Unified Installer) and the target computer (the computer where you install a System Center 2012 component).

Depending on the Service Manager component that you want to install, you will need one or more of the prerequisites in the following table.
