How to install Open Manage Server Administrator (OMSA) on Microsoft Windows 2008 core and Microsoft Hyper-V Server


The Server Core installation option of the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and Hyper-V Server operating system provides a minimal environment for running specific server roles that reduce the maintenance and management requirements and the attack surface for those server roles. A Windows Server 2008 Core or Hyper-V Server installation installs only a subset of the binaries that are required by the supported server roles. For example, the Explorer shell is not installed as part of a Windows Server 2008 Core or Hyper-V Server installation. Instead, the default user interface for a Windows Server 2008 Core or Hyper-V Server installation is the command prompt.

NOTE: Windows Server 2008 Core or Hyper-V Server operating system does not support a graphical user interface (GUI) based installation of software components. Install the software in the Command Line Interface (CLI) mode on Server Core. For more information on Server Core, see microsoft.com.
NOTE: On Windows 7, to install the systems management software successfully, log in using an account which belongs to the Administrators Group and must execute the setup.exe using the option Run as administrator from the right-click menu.
NOTE: Log in as a built-in administrator to install the systems management software on Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista. For more information about the built-in Administrator account, see the Windows Server 2008 Help.


Running Prerequisite Checker In CLI Mode

The setup.exe (located at \SYSMGMT\srvadmin\windows) starts the prerequisite checker program. The prerequisite checker program examines the prerequisites for software components without launching the actual installation. This program displays a status window that provides information about the system’s hardware and software that may affect the installation and operation of software features.
For more information on reading prerequisite return codes please see page 15 of the OMSA install guide
