MDS Installation Pre-Requisites

Cody Konior explains pre-requisites for installing Master Data Services for SQL Server 2016:

Microsoft’s list of MDS prerequisites doesn’t match their PowerShell installation script “sample”.

  • The sample installs the Application Server component which is not listed in the requirements.

  • The sample installs the Application Server NET 4.5 component even though it’s not in the requirements (it lists .NET Framework 4.5 Advanced Services, but a look through other versions of the OS would indicate that this is the plain .NET Framework 4.5 Features category; I suspect someone misread this as “Application Services”).

  • The sample installs additional “Application Development” components that are not listed in the requirements.

  • The sample doesn’t install the recommended Dynamic Content Compression component.

Basically, the sample needs updated and the documentation fixed. ¬†Click through if you’re planning to use MDS.
