Now we’ll load the Content Pack for SQL 2012 which requires the SQL install media ISO. First I browse for “en_sql_server_2012_enterprise_edition_with_sp1_x64_dvd_1227976.iso” and mount as drive letter D:\. Also, make sure that you only have a D:\ removable drive. Having multiple CD-ROM drives (D:\, E:\, etc.) will confuse the script.
Click OK to being Install.
Reading the file “C:\Demos\SQLServer2012\Script and Setup Guide\SQL Server 2012 Package Installation Instructions.docx” we see …
The Pre-Requisites for this installation are the following:
- Windows Server 2012 installed with the AD DS Role for the Contoso.com Domain
- A Licensed or evaluation version of SQL 2012 SP1 from Microsoft http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/hh225126.aspx
- The SQL Server 2012 SP1 ISO should be mounted as Drive D:
- The Active Directory Content Pack Demo 2.0 has been installed
Clicking Install will extract the script and begin the SQL automated install.
SQL will prompt for you to confirm settings by clicking Next many times. Accept the values given and continue.
SQL will now install the needed components and take a while (~30 min) to perform this.
