Application Server

So I created a VM, installed SQL and Epicor. I am now working on installing a New Application Server. I am doing all this to make my test for upgrade isolated from everything. Anyway, how long should this take? It’s been processing for several hours and the task manager shows it using very little cpu or memory usage. So, kinda confused on why it is taking so long.

It definitely shouldn’t take hours. Is it stuck on a specific step during the appserver provisioning?

@aidacra I am not sure how to check that. But my guess it is, that’s kinda what I was thinking. I am not real familiar with some of these things, hence the VM. Don’t want to screw anything up.

This is what I see currently.

I closed it and redid everything. Now it’s working properly and we are actually getting somewhere. Don’t know how i did that, but at least I go tit fixed.

@aidacra After running the appserver again, I did get this error:

Application Server Setup Failed.
The service ‘NetTcpActivator’ does not exist. Setup cannot continue.

One of the prerequisites from the install guide wasn’t installed on this server.

Well, then i will reread and over everything again. Thank you for being patient and giving info when you can.

Ok, so I got the NetTCPActivator error to disappear. Went over the guide and verified I had everything. Now when I am rebuilding, I get this error when it gets to WCF Http activation

So i turned Windows Time service from Manual to Automatic, ran sfc \scannow and everything fell into place. I already had the 3.5 and 4.5 installed with all components, but for some reason, those two things did the trick and got through it all.
