SQL 2012 install on Server 2012R2 “Error while enabling Windows feature NetFx3”

SQL 2012 install on Server 2012R2 “Error while enabling Windows feature NetFx3”

Problem… “Error while enabling Windows feature NetFx3″

We wanted to install APP-V 5.x on server 2008 running SQL 2008. At the very start this was a problem. Error you require a later version of the OS etc.

So we deployed 2012 R2, and then started to install SQL 2012….. error during install …

“Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Release Candidate 0 Setup
The following error has occurred:
Error while enabling Windows feature: NetFx3, Error Code: -2146498298, Please try enabling
Windows feature: NetFx3 from Windows management tools and then run setup again.”

Cancel install

We then tried to enable .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows Server 8 using the “Add Roles and Features Wizard” of Windows Serve 2012.

“Failed”

Next attempt.

Load 2012 disk & connect the server to the internet

Launch CMD as administrator

dism /online /enable-feature /all /featurename:NetFx3 /source:d:\sources\sxs

The operation finished successfully from the command prompt.

We then were able to install SQL Server 2012 successfully.
