SQL Server 2014 SP1 - Installation

As part of my rebuilding my lab I need a SQL install for SCCM. Since I am installing Current Branch (1511+) I am going to use SQL 2014 SP1 since it is supported.

You can download the trial version of SQL Server 2014 here.

Hardware/Software Requirements:
To see a full list of requirements you can visit the Technet Article, but here is the short list:
  • .NET 3.5
  • .NET 4.0
  • PowerShell 2.0
  • 6 GB of disk space
  • 1 GB of memory

So once you have the install media and done the prerequisites installed you are ready to go. Right Click on setup.exe and run as administrator.

When the install wizard starts select Installation from the menu on the left.

On the installation page select New SQL Server stand-alone installation

Enter in your product key or select the evaluation version and Click Next

Accept the EULA and Click Next

You can chose to do the Use Microsoft Update feature if you wish. Click Next

Assess and remediate any failures and Click Next

Select SQL Server Feature Installation and Click Next

Since we are doing this for SCCM we need:
  • Full-Text and Semantic Extractions for Search
  • Reporting Services - Native
  • Management Tools - Complete
You also have the option to change the installation directories at this time. Click Next

For our needs today we will keep the default instance name. Click Next

I left the default accounts here. If you change them an SPN will need to be registered for the new account. Click Next

I left this in Windows Authentication mode and added current user. Click Next

For Reporting Services I left Install and default configuration. Click Next

Review the install summary. If you have several servers to install SQL on you can capture the unattended .ini file from the Configuration file path at the bottom. Click Install

Installation will bake for a bit


More to come!
