    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.
  6. In the Active Roles System Checker, select Active Directory Checks under Environment. Enter the Domain Controller name and appropriate credentials for the Active Roles service account and click Check.

  7. Review the summary to confirm the account has adequate permissions in Active Directory.

    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.
