Installing Active Roles Diagnostic Tools

To install Active Roles Diagnostic Tools

  1. Install the Active Roles Diagnostic Tools, which consists of Active Roles System Checker, which should be run in order to confirm that the server has adequate resources to host and run Active Roles 7.3. Navigate to the installation media.
  2. Go to Solutions | Diagnostic Tools.
  3. Double-click to run ActiveRolesDiagnosticsTools_1.3.0.msi.

    The Active Roles Diagnostic Tools Setup Wizard is displayed.

  4. Click Next.
  5. In the License Terms window, read and accept the license agreement and click Next.

  7. In the Ready to Install window, click Install.
  8. After the tools are installed, click Finish.

Checking System Readiness

To check the system readiness

  1. From the Windows Applications, Start Menu, select Active Roles System Checker.

    The Active Roles System Checker window is displayed.

  1. Select Computer | System Readiness Checks.
  2. In the Confirm System Readiness Checks window, select the appropriate components to check for and click Check.
  3. In the System Readiness Checks window, review the summary and confirm that the computer has passed the required checks. Take appropriate action before installing Active Roles. For example, if there is a warning about insufficient Memory (RAM), then upgrade the Memory to the recommended amount.
  4. In the Active Roles System Checker, select SQL Server Checks under Environment. Enter the SQL Server name and appropriate credentials for the Active Roles service account and click Check.
  5. Review the summary to confirm that the SQL Server passed the checks.

    In this example, the checker found Exchange in the environment. Active Roles service account is not a member of the Exchange groups and therefore must be added appropriately in order to administer Exchange-related tasks in Active Roles.
