Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 SP2 Web Client Scale-Out Deployment: Installing IIS On Session Control Server

Before we can start installing the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 SP2 Web Client, there are a few steps which need to be completed.

The first of them is to install the IIS Web Server on the machine which will operate as the Session Control Server. In my case, this is the SC1 machine which is running Windows Server 2012. IIS is installed via Server Manager by clicking Add roles and features:

Server Manager

Read the Before you begin page and ensure you have completed the listed tasks and then click Next:

Add Roles and Features Wizard - Before You Begin

For the Installation Type step, accept Role-based or feature-based installation and click Next:

Add Roles and Features Wizard - Installation Type

Choose the server IIS is to be installed on from the list, which in this example is SC1:

Add Roles and Features Wizard - Server Selection

Scroll down and mark Web Server (IIS):

Add Roles and Features Wizard - Server Roles

A dialog will be displayed showing the features required to manage the IIS feature. Click Add Features button to proceed:

Add Roles and Features Wizard - Add features that are required for Web Server (IIS)?

Click Next to move onto Features and mark .NET Framework 3.5 Features and then click Next:

Add Roles and Features Wizard - Features

The next step is an overview of the Web Server Role (IIS) and a short list of things to note. Read this information and then click Next:

Add Roles and Features Wizard - Web Server Role (IIS)

Scroll down the list, expand Security and mark Windows Authentication

Add Roles and Features Wizard - Web Server (IIS) - Role Services

Expand Application Development and mark ASP.NET 3.5;

Add Roles and Features Wizard - Web Server (IIS) - Role Services

A list of the features required for ASP.NET 3.5 will be displayed. To proceed, clck Add Features:

Add Roles and Features Wizard - Add features that are required for ASP.NET 3.5?caption

Click Next to proceed:

Add Roles and Features Wizard - Web Server (IIS) - Role Services

In the confirmation step, check your selections to ensure the relevant roles and features have been marked.

If your server is not connected to the Internet you will need to specify an alternative source path to be able to install the ASP.NET 3.5 feature. I blogged about how to do this back in June last year.

After confirming the roles and features to install, click the Install button:

Add Roles and Features Wizard - Confirm installation selections

The installation may take some time to run through depending on the speed of your server and Internet connection. In Windows Server 2012 theAdd Roles and Features Wizard can be closed while the installation proceeds, but if you keep it open you will see the following confirmation once the install has completed:
