Please go to C:\windows\System32 and find "ServerManager.exe" rename it as "ServerManagerCMD.exe" then run the prerequisite installer of sharepoint. If you need more help then you can find it from here

Hope you will find it helpful.

  • Thnx it worked. :D after changing the file name the prerequisites are installed automatically with prerequisites installer. :) – Md. Tahmidul Abedin Mar 7 '16 at 11:48

Method 1

Install this hotfix and restart & retry.

Method 2

If Method 1 doesn't work, manually install prerequisites and restart:

Open an elevated Windows PowerShell prompt on the SharePoint server (that is, Run as Administrator), and execute the following commands:

Import-Module ServerManager

Add-WindowsFeature NET-WCF-HTTP-Activation45,NET-WCF-TCP-Activation45,NET-WCF-Pipe-Activation45

Add-WindowsFeature Net-Framework-Features,Web-Server,Web-WebServer,Web-Common-Http,Web-Static-Content,Web-Default-Doc,Web-Dir-Browsing,Web-Http-Errors,Web-App-Dev,Web-Asp-Net,Web-Net-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Filter,Web-Health,Web-Http-Logging,Web-Log-Libraries,Web-Request-Monitor,Web-Http-Tracing,Web-Security,Web-Basic-Auth,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Filtering,Web-Digest-Auth,Web-Performance,Web-Stat-Compression,Web-Dyn-Compression,Web-Mgmt-Tools,Web-Mgmt-Console,Web-Mgmt-Compat,Web-Metabase,Application-Server,AS-Web-Support,AS-TCP-Port-Sharing,AS-WAS-Support, AS-HTTP-Activation,AS-TCP-Activation,AS-Named-Pipes,AS-Net-Framework,WAS,WAS-Process-Model,WAS-NET-Environment,WAS-Config-APIs,Web-Lgcy-Scripting,Windows-Identity-Foundation,Server-Media-Foundation,Xps-Viewer

  • tried method 1, but got the same error list. Then i tried to install the prerequisites manually, some of them worked fine, but some of the error was still here, like Application Server Role, Web Server (IIS) Role: configuration error; Windows Server AppFabric: Installation skipped; Microsoft Identity Extensions: Installation skipped. :( – Md.

Add .NET Framework 3.5 Features and try again.

Okay, so the slightly longer answer...

During the installation of the SharePoint 2013 pre-requisites, if the .Net 3.5 features are not installed on the server, the pre-requisite installer will attempt to go to the configured source for updates for the server to retrieve .Net 3.5 and install it.

If the server is configured to go to Windows Update, this usually succeeds, however if the server is configured to use WSUS and .Net 3.5 has not been integrated into the WSUS catalog, or the server doesn't have access to the internet, this usually fails. As an alternative, the policy for 'specify settings for optional component installation and component repair' can be set to allow the server to contact Windows Update directly if the server is configured to use WSUS as its update source and .Net 3.5 has not been integrated into the WSUS catalog. Again this (obviously) requires internet access from the server to succeed.

Here's an example for a server that uses WSUS as its update source, but .Net 3.5 has not been integrated into the WSUS catalog and the policy to allow the server to access Windows Update directly for additional component installation has not been configured: Application Server Role config error

As can be seen, the configuration of the Application Server role fails.

To install the .Net 3.5 features mount the Windows Server 2012 media in the DVD drive (mount the ISO etc.), start server manager, select 'add roles and features' from the central panel, click next until you get to the 'features' page and select '.Net framework 3.5 Features' at the top: Add .Net Framework 3.5 Features

Click next and on the confirmation page, click 'specify an alternate path' and enter 'X:\sources\sxs' where X is the drive letter of the DVD containing the Server 2012 media: Alternate source path

Click OK, then click 'install'. Once installation has completed, retry the installation of the SharePoint 2013 pre-requisites.

Here's a screen shot following the above process: Application Server Role config success

As can be seen, this time, the configuration of the Application Server role is succeeding.

If you server does have access to an update source containing .Net 3.5, it will be installed automatically. Here's a screen shot of a server that this has happened on (the server used Windows Update as its update source and could therefore automatically retrieve .Net 3.5 and install it; this happens silently during the pre-requisite installation): .Net framework 3.5 Features auto installed

  • This method didn't solve the problem of mine, though i installed .NET Framework 3.5 Features. – Md. Tahmidul Abedin Mar 7 '16 at 11:10
  • Glad you got it sorted by renaming 'ServerManager.exe' to 'ServerManagerCMD.exe'! – Andy Dawson Mar 7 '16 at 16:25
